Saturday BoopProps - Villanova vs. Providence

Just realized that upon completing its home schedule Saturday, Villanova will have played almost as many games at the Wells Fargo Center this season (seven) as they did at Finneran Pavilion (eight).

Now, that doesn’t help us with a Prop Bet . . . but this will:

If you go back to last season, the Wildcats’ last seven Big East games at the Center have been Under.

Today the opponent is Providence, who is working on a three-game Over streak, but since VU has gone Under eight out of 10, that is still the way for us to go.

The main O/U is 137 (-113) and while we would like to go with an different Alternative Total for some higher odds, the next lowest number Parx is offering is 133 (+140). That is just a little too low. We were looking more for 134.5 or 135. So we stick with the main number and take the smaller payout.

Villanova-Providence --

Under 137 (-113) . . . $10 / $8.90
