The St. John’s Red Storm (12-5) will visit the Providence Friars (10-7) at the Dunkin Donuts Center. The Red Storm snapped a three-game losing streak after defeating DePaul last time out, 74-67.

St. John’s is led by LJ Figueroa who leads the team in points per game with 14.8, while Josh Roberts averages a team high 7.0 rebounds for the Red Storm. Rasheem Dunn leads in assists with 3.3 per game. The Red Storm average 76.6 points per game and allow 68.1 points against. St. John’s shoot 41.3 percent from the field and bring down 40.6 rebounds per game. 

Providence is coming off a tough loss against Butler that snapped a four-game winning streak. Providence is led by Alpha Diallo who averages 14.1 points per game on 41.2 percent from the field. Diallo also leads the team in rebounds with 8.8 per game while his teammate Luwane Pipkins leads the Friars in assists with 3.9 per game. Providence averages 72.1 points per game and allow 66.4 points against. The Friars shoot 41.1 percent from the field and bring down 38.7 rebounds per game. 

Red Storm are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
Friars are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home.
Under is 12-3-1 in Red Storm last 16 overall.
Over is 7-3 in Friars last 10 games as a home favorite.

Providence has been playing some really good basketball as of late. The Friars had a tough loss  against Butler but before that, they were finding ways to come out of games with victories. Before Butler, Providence’s last two home games were double-digit blowouts against Georgetown and Texas. St. John’s has had trouble winning on the road, losing their last two to Xavier and Georgetown. I like Providence to start a new winning streak in this one. Friars are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home. Final Score Prediction, Providence Friars win and cover ATS 76-66.
