Iowa, a No. 5 seed, would have been the -5 to -5.5 favorite versus Providence despite the Friars being the higher No. 4 seed.  Instead it will be Richmond, likely the +4 dog facing the Friars after their upset against the Hawkeyes.   Jazz Sports offers a generous refund on your first bet (up to $1000).  18 and up welcome.

This represented the first outright Big East title for Providence, a team that went 25-5.

Center Nate Watson is averaging 13.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

Creighton destroyed the Friars in the Big East Tournament semifinals.

On neutral courts since 2016, the Friars are 9-18 Straight Up (33.3%).

In non-conference games, Providence went 10-1 Straight Up this season and 5-1 SU as an away dog.

Iowa had gone 10-1 Straight Up in non-conference games this season before the upset by Richmond.  They were 22-5 as a favorite.
