The Friars are 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Marquette and 3-13 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall.
Providence has been real shaky as of late with an injury to Bentil and the team overall looks beatable. Marquette has really turned its season around and already has a win over the Friars this season. At home, I like the Golden Eagles to get another victory.
