Providence vs. Florida,

Score: 51 - 83
Point Spread: -5½/-110 Florida
Hall of Fame Invitational - Barclays Center - Brooklyn, NY
The Gators (6-3) are off to a slow start after early seasons projections and rankings listed them No. 6 in the Associated Press preseason poll and were seen as a favorite along with Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference. However, this is still a strong team, its their relative inexperience that has hindered them so far , but Im betting they right their ship quickly behind some top tier talent.
Meanwhile, Providence has had a very weak schedule with sub par results so far and from a metrics standpoint is ranked 146th on the NET ratings, easily the worst mark in the 10-team Big East and I just dont think their ready for a top tier showing in a neutral court setting vs a more talented team that is battle tested after wins vs Xavier, and Miami including a 3 point loss to tough Connecticut side.
Florida is 3-0 SU/ATS L/3 in this series.
