Who does the public like in this game?

Seton Hall continues to emerge as a hot team but isn’t getting much credit against the top of the Big East. The Pirates have won seven of their last eight and they have a 15-5 record against the spread against conference opponents. Villanova is 8-12 ATS in conference games. The Pirates also have thrived as an underdog, going 11-2 against the spread. Given they played Villanova tough in both meetings, the Pirates should be motivated to push for an upset tonight against the inconsistent Cats, who are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven.
