Richmond vs Providence Odds, Lines, Picks, Predictions


Providence 67, Richmond 61

money line

PROVIDENCE (-160) He won the Big East title for the regular season, but the books still give him a little respect. The Frears beat South Dakota State with a low-scoring opening round win, but the books still didn’t trust Providence. Take advantage of the reasonable price.

anti spread

Providence -2.5 (-120) Not going home.

She gets a break facing the 12th seed, rather than facing the top 10 championship champs from Iowa State. It’s uncertain why the books continue to disrespect Providence, a team that has been 4-1 ATS in its last five games against the winning teams. Perhaps this is because Richmond works on the heater, but the overall work structure for the monks is much more impressive.

Above under

The Less than 133.5 (-107) is the way to go. The directions point to Under, as the two teams have had low-scoring affairs lately.

Under is 5-0 in Providence’s past five NCAA games, and most importantly, 5-1 in his last six games on a neutral site.

The Under has had a 13-4-1 in the past 18 games overall with Richmond while they’ve gone 3-0-1 in their past four NCAA fights — including their first-round win.
