Xavier vs. Seton Hall Prediction
Will Xavier pull off the small upset tonight when the Musketeers visit Seton Hall at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Pirates are 3.5-point home favorites versus the Musketeers while the over/under currently sits at 143.5 points.
Xavier enters play tonight having split over its last 10 games, but is just 2-8 against the spread during that same span. The Musketeers are also just 11-15 against the spread on the season, which includes a rough 2-8 record ATS on the road.
Seton Hall has dropped six of its last 10 games overall, both on the hardwood and at the betting window. The Pirates have a losing ATS record on the season as well, going 10-14 against the number this year, which includes a 5-6 ATS record at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The underdog is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams and I like the underdog tonight too because this game should come down to the final couple of possessions. The Pirates are just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games when they're a favorite of between 0.5 and 6.5 points and are winless at 0-4 at the betting window in their last four games after allowing more than 90 points in their previous game.
