Does anybody hear like the Dukes at + 6? Xavier has been awful since their win against Cincinnati. Thoughts please.

Call me crazy but I think their season turned around with their spirited 2nd half performance again Lasalle to get back in the game. They were not playing good basketball but actually appeared to finally regain a heart beat and carried it into Fordham where they actually started to play a bit better too. I think tonight is a coming out party for Xavier and they win by 15+

Funny. I think along the same lines. Obviosuly Xavier has been mentally hungover for 3 weeks, I think they showed signs of coming out of it and dominate tonight.

Road game against a team who was coming off of home victories over Georgia Tech and Harvard. Not a win they would have got 2 weeks ago

Don't see why the books would make it a possession less for them to cover moving the line from 8 to 6  with 65% of action on Xavier.

Thanks Redman910. I was leaning towards the Dukes but might make this a no play. I'm not laying money on Xavier at this point and time.

dukes are most likely still without bj monteiro.. but they have been playing a little better with contributions from freshman. its gonna come down to rebounding and half court offense imho
