Villanova is leading the Big East with a 9-1 record in conference play. The Wildcats are also 19-3 overall. The lone loss in conference came against Providence back on Jan. 24, 82-76 in OT.

The Friars have lost two of their last three, including a 77-70 loss at DePaul in their last game.

The loss wasn’t ideal for the Friars, but it could mean good things today against the Wildcats. Providence is 3-0 against the spread this season following a loss. On the flip side, Villanova has been somewhat shaky after a win, going just 8-9-1 against the spread this season.
