St. John’s Red Storm
It is still very early, but I have liked the way that St. John’s has played this year. They may not be an elite squad, but I do think they can be very good.
The Red Storm picked up a win over the DePaul Blue Demons on Wednesday by a score of 89-84. It was a good win for them, but they will be in for a bigger challenge on Saturday when they face the Friars on the road.
This is a squad that has not played many teams that are all that good, but that will change when they start facing teams within their conference. As we all know, the Big East is a very competitive conference and the bad teams will get exposed.
Julian Champagnie had a very good game in their last outing, as he had 34 points and 16 rebounds. He is a very special player and he has had some kind of year.
Providence has had a very good season so far. They are certainly playing better than I thought and I am sure they have exceeded a lot of people’s expectations to this point.
The Friars come into this contest with a record of 13-2. It is hard to be critical of that, even the craziest of fans or pundits.
There has been a lot of positivity associated with this crew all year long, but that was not the case in their last game, as they lost to the Marquette Golden Eagles by a score of 88-56. Yes, it was an embarrassing loss, but I do not expect this team to dwell on it.
Throughout the course of a season, every team is going to have a handful of just very bad games. The loss on Tuesday was a perfect example of that, as nothing they did seemed to go right against Marquette.

Free St. John’s Red Storm vs. Providence Friars NCAAB Summary:
I am very curious to see how the Friars bounce back on Saturday after their most recent game. Will they get back to their winning ways or will they let that one game get to them?
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: St. John’s ATS
Both of these teams are very talented and well-coached, but overall, I give the edge to Providence and it also helps that they are playing at home in this game, somewhere they have played very well at lately.
To me, this game is not going to be easy at all for the Friars. The Red Storm are more than a capable team and I expect them to be competitive in this ball game.
For me, the 4.5 points are too high to lay with Providence. Right now, I would say they win the game, but I do not trust them to cover, especially based on what I saw them do a few days ago.
Give me St. John’s getting the points here.
