Xavier hasn’t quite been the team that their preseason top 10 ranking predicted but they are still pretty good.
Providence is sub .500 in the league and needs to get that number up if they want to have an at large chance.
A win over Xavier would do a lot to help their profile.
Xavier may have more conference losses than expected but there are no head scratchers. Two are on the road to ranked teams and two are at home to ranked teams.
This team suffered a big blow in losing Edmund Sumner for the season and leading scorer Trevon Bluiett might be out for this one as well.
Those are the team’s top two scorers and 2 of 3 that average more than 10 points per game. The third is J.P. Macura, a nice player but not a star.
Rashid Gaston is a nice player and is coming off his best game of the season against Villanova with 23/10. He does the dirty work inside.
The Muskies have been playing 9 so they can slot some guys up but without Blueitt the ceiling for this team is much, much lower.
They could be ripe for a loss on the road after getting beaten by Villanova and trying to figure out their rotation.
The Friars may not be on the bubble right now, but they beat Butler in their last game and have a chance to bag another nice win against a wounded Xavier team.
In the win over the Bulldogs, freshman Alpha Diallo (love the name) played a season high 36 minutes and was critical to the effort. He is an athletic wing who seems to be coming on late. He gives them a third option when others, like leading scorer Rodney Bullock, might be struggling.
Bullock is still the engine of this team, leading in scoring and rebounding. He leads a solid group.
This win might put the Friars on bubble watch but they can’t get too confident or get caught looking ahead to another big one at Creighton, next.

Free Xavier Musketeers vs. Providence Friars NCAAB Prediction:
Xavier is not looking all that strong for the stretch run. On the road is not where they want to be.
I like the way that Providence is developing more depth. They can get this one and really benefit from it.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Final score prediction posted below as no line posted as of yet.
The line here is tougher to call. Xavier has the injuries so it might be a pick’em. As long as Providence isn’t too heavy go with them.
