College Basketball Betting Trends

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. Seton Hall is 19-7-1 ATS in its last 27 neutral court games.

Wofford

The Terriers are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. Wofford is 6-2 ATS in its last eight Thusrday games.

Prediction:

The Terriers have played some tough opponents in competitive fashion this season with the one exception being a lopsided loss to Kansas. They kept it close for the most part in a 78-67 loss to No. 1 seed North Carolina and have eight wins over top 100 foes. Seton Hall struggled at times with offensive efficiency this season and while its defense carried it at times, it goes up against an elite offense in Wofford. I don't see an inconsistent Seton Hall team keeping up here.
