Xavier is coming off an 82-66 loss to Seton Hall in its last game on February 26th at home. Xavier has now lost four straight games, and that includes a triple-OT loss to Providence in one of the most entertaining games of the season and a 13-point loss to this St. John's team. Xavier is now 17-11 this season with a 7-10 Big East record and a 13-15-0 against the spread record as well. Xavier's leading scorer so far this season has been F Jack Nunge, who has scored 13.0 points per game for the Musketeers.

St. John's is a 1.5-point favorite and the total is set at 156.5. Neither of these teams has impressed as of late but I like St. John's chances at a season sweep here. Xavier is in really bad form as of late and the Red Storm are tough to beat at Carnesseca. Xavier has crumbled down the stretch and there is no reason for me to believe the Musketeers turn it on on Wednesday night.
