College Basketball Betting Trends

Marquette

The road team is 19-5-1 ATS in the last 25 meetings. The Golden Eagles are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games.

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games. Seton Hall is 2-7 ATS in its last nine home games.

Prediction:

Seton Hall lost its last home game by one point, while winning the previous three straight up. With Marquette struggling in its last couple games and perhaps overachieving all season, I like the Pirates' chances here at home. Seton Hall kept it close to the tune of 70-66 at Marquette back on January 12, so this should be another close one where Seton Hall has a good chance of winning straight up.
