Providence Perfect ATS Against UMass

Providence has been far from a safe bet this season with the Friars just 6-5 ATS, but a contest against UMass Monday could get them going in the right direction for bettors. The Friars are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their five games against the Minutemen in our database, which goes back to 1999.

Shark Bites
  • Texas A&M transfer Antwan Space will be activated for UMass after sitting out for personal reasons.
  • Providence is 5-1 ATS in their past six road games.
  • Kris Dunn was on the bench in street clothes for Providence on Saturday night.

Providence star guard, and reigning Big East player of the year, Kris Dunn has missed the past two games with a virus. The Friars have done just fine without Dunn with Ben Bentil specifically stepping up as the center has tallied 35 points and 20 rebounds across those two games.  

Providence will have a difficult time guarding the three guard attack of UMass. The trio of Trey Davis, Donte Clark and Jabarie Hinds have combined for an average of 53 points per game so far this season.
