Seton Hall vs. Villanova Pick
Will No. 2 Villanova cruise in tonight’s Big East Tournament semifinal when it faces Seton Hall at 6:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Villanova is the clear favorite in this game, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -11.5 points against Seton Hall. The over/under total has yet to be set. Nova won both meetings this season, each by at least 20 points. Today’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York.
Villanova is coming odd a dominant 108-67 win over St. John’s last night to advance to tonight’s semifinal. The Wildcats are now 29-3 on the season. They have also covered the spread in their last three to move to 17-14 ATS on the season. Nova is averaging 78.5 points per game on offense this season while allowing 63.2 on defense. Josh Hart is leading the team with 18.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while Jalen Brunson is adding 14.8 points per contest.
Seton Hall is coming off an 82-76 win over Marquette last night to improve to 21-10 on the season. The Pirates have now won five straight games coming into tonight and sit at 13-16-1 against the spread. Seton Hall averages 74 points per game on offense while allowing 70.7 on defense. Khadeen Carrington is leading the team with 17.1 points per game while Angel Delgado is adding 15.6 points and 13.2 rebounds per game.
Nova seems to be back in form of the championship team it was a year ago. The Wildcats have won their last three since losing to Butler by an average of 27.6 points. While Seton Hall is rolling right now, the Pirates haven’t matched up well with the Wildcats this season and I don’t see anything changing about that today.
