Providence and St. John’s play for the second time this season with the Friars looking to avenge a loss on their home court on January 14th. The two teams split the regular season series last year with the visiting team coming out victorious each time. Providence had the last laugh as the Friars defeated the Red Storm at Madison Square Garden in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals on their way to winning the tournament and getting the league’s automatic NCAA Tournament bid.
This game opened with the Friars as a road underdog at +3.
Stay tuned for updates as they happen and the total amount once that’s available.
