This may not be the proper place to post this, but here is the Team Rankings evaluation of the game against Maryland and our probability of winning against Providence. We sank down in their rankings from 40 to 58, but have a probability of 60% to win over Providence. The Vegas spread this morning gives SLU an expected win over Providence of 2 pts. Believe what you want but we are still favored to win this one. We will see if reality equals probability or not today. All is not lost.

Predictions Update
Nov 20, 2022
After losing to Maryland 95-67 yesterday, Saint Louis is now projected to finish the regular season 22-9 (13-5 Atlantic 10).
The odds that the Billikens make the NCAA tournament are down to 57%, a decrease of 19% since yesterday.
We currently rank Saint Louis as the #58 team in the country, and the #2 team in the Atlantic 10.
Next game: Sun, Nov 20 vs. #84 Providence. Our power ratings give the Billikens a 60% chance to win.

Bracketology Projections

Make NCAA Tournament Get Automatic NCAA Bid Projected Seed
(if Selected)
57% 23% 9
Saint Louis is right on the bubble. If they fail to get an NCAA tournament automatic bid (by winning the Atlantic 10 tournament) they'll have about a 50/50 shot of getting an at-large bid.
As for an automatic bid ... Saint Louis has a 23% chance to win the conference tournament. They're more likely than not to lose, but they do have a reasonable shot at winning.
If the Billikens can get to 25 total wins (including conference tournament wins), their odds to make the NCAA tournament increase to 84%.
We project the Billikens with a 7% chance to make the Sweet Sixteen and a 1% chance to reach the Final Four.

Maybe we should go back to comical thread titles. For example: Billicanence is greater than Providence?

We are already switching it up, we lost yesterday because I started a game day thread at 2 AM, We just have to avoid threads At that hour

This team comes out mad and hammers them. OldGuy you can take the 2 point spread and the tempering of expectations and blow it out your ass! 
Vegas doesn’t know squat. I however, know what I’m talking about!

SLU is a 2 point favorite at ESPN and 2.5 point favorite at CBS Sports, o149.5.

Providence plays 5 transfers in its top 6, the point guard from St. Joe’s, both bigs from LaSalle, a 6’7” forward, its leading scorer yesterday from Kentucky. 

Providence, RI is only an hour drive away, 59 miles. This will be a de facto Providence home game. 

SLU is the better team, has more experience playing together. SLU should win today’s game. Now go out and get it done.

I am stunned we are favored.  Almost bet the Friars.  I doubt they fill this arena today but you never know.  Bynum, Crosswell and Moore were not good in the A10 so we shall see.

It seems to me you should by a beer for everyone in the arena next game as penance 

You’re probably right. Luckily there will be no one there for the D2 game ha
