Musketeers fall in OT

Xavier lost 84-82 in double overtime at home Wednesday night versus Marquette to drop to 13-8 overall and 2-6 in conference play. Quentin Goodin paced the Musketeers with 19 points on 5-of-10 shooting off the bench including 5-of-8 from 3-point distance plus 4-of-6 at the free throw line. He also accounted for four assists and two rebounds. Naji Marshall tallied 16 points, seven boards, five assists and two steals. Tyrique Jones registered 13 points, 15 caroms and three assists. Paul Scruggs contributed 12 points, five rebounds and three dimes. Zach Freemantle added 11 points and four boards.

The Pirates outscored the Blue Demons 36-28 in the second half after trailing by one at the break.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Xavier

The Musketeers are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. Xavier is 1-5 ATS in its last six road games.

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. The favorite is 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

Prediction: 

Seton Hall have not exactly been crushing teams lately, but they are taking care of business every game regardless. I think what helps them tremendously here is the early start time as that will certainly benefit the home team. Along with Xavier coming off a fatiguing double OT loss, the best bet here looks like the Pirates winning by a comfortable margin.
