The public is on Xavier, so I'm taking St. John's. Two really equal teams here, with Xavier having the better record. If you look closer, however, they didn't really play anyone at the beginning of the season. Also, when you look at St. Johns losses, they're against some pretty good teams. St. Johns lost to Georgetown feb. 2nd by only 1 point.
Xavier is overrated in this spot with St. Johns playing at MSG in their hometown NYC.
A lot of books have been shifting the line from +1.5 to +2 as more money comes in on xavier, So I've been waiting all day for the Pinny line to move accordingly. However, I believe St. Johns should win this one outright as Vegas once again scoops the pot with all that money on the Musketeers.
