The Big East is really strong this season thanks to both of these teams, especially Xavier which has been in the Top Ten for a good chunk of the season.
If they are going to get beat on their home floor it might take maybe the best player in college hoops, Kris Dunn, to do it.
The Friars got a lot of early pub but their performance in the Big East has not been great – they are just 7-6 and have some puzzling losses. This will be their last chance to make a really big statement during the regular season.
It is going to take a strong game as they look fore revenge from a loss to Xavier back in January. After this one their schedule eases so they will definitely get a 20th victory.
Dunn is having a strong final season and Ben Bentil is averaging 20ppg. It is an impressive duo in terms of production but they still need a little more on some night. Rodney Bullock is that third wheel, the only other player averaging more than 6ppg. At 12 and seven he can be counted upon.
They are 7-0 when he has a double-double this season.
The Musketeers have only three losses but they have all come in Big East play so they are looking up at Villanova from second place in the league. They have lost at home only once all season but there is likely not enough games left to bridge the two game gap between them and the Wildcats.
Xavier is one of the most balanced and unselfish teams in the country. Most recent case in point: James Farr, team’s leading rebounder averaging 10 and 8, did not score a single point in their recent win over Butler.
The Musketeers still beat the Bulldogs by 17 on the road thanks to his 12 boards and 2 blocks.
In that same win leading scorer Trevon Bluiett was also off his game but three other players stepped up scoring double figures. Having a superstar is great but this team is chock full of players that any coach in America would want on their roster.
Xavier is an easy team to root for but they have been making much money for folks. They are just 6-7 ATS at home this season and only 5-5 ATS in their last 10.
CBB Betting Trends:
- PROV are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road games.
- Over is 39-19 in PROV last 58 Wed. games.

Xavier will be challenged in this one but they should have enough answers to get a solid home victory.
