College Basketball Betting Trends

Seton Hall

The underdog is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings. The road team is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings.

Creighton

The Bluejays are 18-10 ATS this season. Three of the last five meetings have gone over the total.

Prediction:

There is a lot of pressure on Seton Hall to get it done today and win the conference title outright, but it is a roster that has veteran presences that should be able to rise to the occasion in this spot. The afternoon start might not be ideal, but after losing by five to the Bluejays at home last month I see this as a revenge spot. Both teams are highly motivated, but Powell is the best scorer on the court and a few big buckets by him down the stretch could make all the difference.
