St. John's vs. Seton Hall Pick

Big East College Basketball Predictions: St. John’s vs. Seton Hall 12/31/17

Can No. 23 Seton Hall keep rolling along in the Big East when the Pirates host St. John’s today at 5PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Seton Hall is the favorite at home in this game, as the Pirates are getting odds of -12 points against St. John’s today. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 148 points. Today’s game takes place from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and will air live on FS1.

St. John’s is coming off a 94-72 loss to Providence this week to open conference play. The Red Storm are 10-3 overall and 5-6 against the spread. St. John’s has failed to cover in its last two and three of its last four. St. John’s is averaging 74.3 points per game on offense this year while allowing 67.1 per game on defense. Shamorie Ponds is averaging 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game to lead the team, but he is questionable today due to an injury. Marcus Lovett, who puts up 14.9 points, is doubtful with an ankle injury.

Seton Hall has won three straight, including an 90-84 win over Creighton earlier this week. The Pirates are 12-2 overall and 7-7 against the spread. They covered in the win over the Bluejays but are 1-3 ATS in their last four. Seton Hall is averaging 81.2 points per game on offense while allowing 68.4 points per game on defense. Desi Rodriguez is leading the team with 18.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game while Angel Delgado is adding 13.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on St. John’s vs. Seton Hall

Seton Hall has won three of the last four meetings in this series and the two have split the spread over those four games. St. John’s comes into today’s contest beat up and the Red Storm are playing in their first true road game today. Seton Hall is coming off a big win and should be able to build on that momentum today against this St. John’s team. The public betting is siding with the Pirates and I like them to cover today as well.
