Opening Line: Providence -2.5 at Boston College 12/5/14

The line opened with Providence as a 2.5 point road favorite at Boston College. Kenpom.com has Providence winning the game by 2, 65-63.

There has already been some movement on that line with most Vegas establishments moving the line up to Providence -4.5 at the writing of this post. That same trend is holding firm at the Offshore books as well. Providence has only played 1 other road game which was their 20 point loss at Kentucky so there isn’t much in the way of betting trends for the 2014-15 season for the Friars when they are on the road.

I’ll update this post as the line continues to move.
