College Basketball Betting Trends
The Demon Deacons are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. DePaul is 1-4 ATS in its last five Wednesday games.
The Pirates are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The home team is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Pirates are playing with a ton of confidence right now and have only lost once straight up at home this season, that being a mid-November 76-73 defeat against Michigan State. Seton Hall is solid offensively, but its the defense that really makes opponents frustrated. Offense is the weaker of DePaul's two ends of the court and while it only lost 74-66 at home against the Pirates a month ago, Seton Hall having home-court advantage makes this all the more difficult.
