College Basketball Betting Trends


The Golden Eagles are 5-0 ATS in their last five road games. Marquette is 7-2 ATS in its last nine Big East games.


The Friars are 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Providence is 2-5 ATS in its last seven home games.


Marquette has been exceptional on the road, while the Friars have been up-and-down at home. I would trust the Golden Eagles to put together an awesome road performance again over Providence having another stellar home game. The Friars are pretty solid on defense, but a shaky offense will likely be their undoing here.
