College Basketball Betting Trends

St. John’s

The Red Storm are 1-5 against the spread in their last six following a win and 0-4 ATS in their last four Thursday games.

Marquette

Marquette has failed to cover in four straight following a loss and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 Thursday games.

Prediction:

St. John’s actually won both meetings with Marquette this season and the Red Storm have covered in eight of their last 10 in this series. While St. John’s did play last night, the Storm are playing on one of their home floors. Marquette also comes in really not playing well. It could be hard to find that offense against a team playing on their home floor, especially with a player as good as Ponds going against them.

College Basketball Prediction: St. John’s +2
