The Providence Friars will be looking for their 15th win of the season when the team travels to Finneran Pavilion to take on the Villanova Wildcats. Providence enters this game with a 14-10 record after beating St. John’s in its last game. Meanwhile, Villanova is 19-5 this season after losing to Marquette in its last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve on their respective records in this one.

Providence Takes Care Of Business Against St. John’s

Providence entered the season with serious concerns as the team only returned two starters from last year’s 21-14 team. As a result, people assumed that Providence would finish somewhere in the middle of the Big East as a result. So far this season, the team has underachieved a bit as it is currently 14-10 and is only 4-7 in conference play. However, the team enters this contest with a bit of momentum as it beat St. John’s in its last game. In that game, Providence’s defense excelled as the team only allowed 56 points on 37% shooting from the floor. With an even better opponent up next, Providence’s defense will have to continue playing extremely well.

Providence was led by junior guard Alpha Diallo who was extremely solid last season. Last year, Diallo averaged 13.2 points per game along with 6.6 rebounds. However, he has managed to play even better this season as he is currently leading the team in scoring with 17.0 points per game along with 8.3 rebounds per game. Diallo is a very good player, and he is also a leader on this team. If Providence plans on winning its fifth conference game of the season, he will have to carry the team to victory.

Villanova Has Winning Streak Snapped

Last season, the Villanova Wildcats went 36-4 and beat Michigan in the National Championship game. This season, Villanova looked to duplicate last year’s success by winning consecutive championships. So far this season, Villanova has looked the part as it is currently 19-5. Villanova was also in the middle of an 11-game winning streak before losing to Marquette in its last game. In that game, Villanova’s offense struggled as it only scored 65 points on less than 41% shooting from floor. However, with a home game up next, look for the team’s offense to play a lot better.

The Villanova Wildcats are led by senior guard Phil Booth who will look to lead the team to another championship. Last season, Booth averaged 10.0 points per game along with 2.9 assists. He also managed to shoot 80% from the foul line and over 44% from the floor which was impressive. However, Booth has exploded this season with more minutes as he is currently averaging 18.3 points per game on over 38% shooting from the three-point line. Booth is the veteran leader of the team and he will need to help guide his team to a cover in this one.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Villanova is currently ranked number 13 for a reason and has proven why throughout this season. Villanova has the ability to win in a variety of ways due to its quality offense and its elite defense. The team also has the experience on its roster which should allow the Wildcats to win this contest. Providence’s offense is extremely streaky and its defense can leave a lot to be desired. I think that Villanova is the better overall team and that it will show on Wednesday. Give me the favorite in this one as a result.

Prediction: Villanova

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both teams have the ability to score a lot of points and I think that their respective defenses are okay at best. Both teams are coming off poor offensive performances and I can see both teams rallying quite nicely offensively in this one. I expect both teams to play efficient offense as Villanova likes to play a bit uptempo. Furthermore, most of the recent matchups at Finneran Pavilion between these teams have gone over the posted total. As a result, give me the over.

Prediction: Over
