College Basketball Betting Trends

Marquette

The Golden Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last four games as an underdog. Marquette is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 Thursday games.

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 17-4-1 ATS in their last 22 neutral site games. The favorite is 3-13 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

Prediction:

Seton Hall has stumbled as of late and the Golden Eagles have one of the nation's best scorers in Howard. While Marquette has struggled lately as well, it has the makeup of a team that can beat anyone on any given night. The Golden Eagles know they need a win if they want an NCAA Tournament bid. I'm taking a shot on the dogs rising to the occasion.
