Creighton is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Providence is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record.
I’m backing Providence here. I get why Creighton’s favored as the Bluejays have been on a tear as of late, but we’re getting Providence as a home dog where they’ve gone 13-0 straight up this season. I think the Bluejays are getting a lot of attention for good reason, but that attention is drawing away from how good and underappreciated Providence is. I’ll side with the Friars in this one.
