The Seton Hall Pirates and the Marquette Golden Eagles meet in college basketball action from the Fiserv Forum on Saturday afternoon.
The Seton Hall Pirates will look to rebound from a 98-92 loss to DePaul last time out. Jared Rhoden leads the Pirates in scoring and rebounding with 16.3 PPG with 7.1 RPG while Bryce Aiken has 12.9 PPG with 2.8 APG and Tyrese Samuel has 10.5 PPG with 6.9 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Seton Hall so far this season. Alexis Yetna has 9.8 PPG with 7 RPG and Myles Cale has 8.8 PPG and 4.1 RPG while Kadary Richmond has a team-high 3.2 APG to lead the Pirates in the assist department. As a team, Seton Hall is averaging 79.1 PPG on 44.6% shooting from the field, 31.7% from three and 78.1% from the foul line while allowing 66.7 PPG on 40.4% shooting from the field and 28.9% from three this season.
The Marquette Golden Eagles will look to add to their current three-game winning streak after an 87-78 win over DePaul last time out. Justin Lewis leads the Golden Eagles in scoring and rebounding with 15.1 PPG and 7.8 RPG while Darryl Morsell has 13.1 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Marquette so far this season. Tyler Kolek also leads Marquette in assists with a team-high 6.4 APG as well this season. As a team, Marquette is averaging 75.3 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field, 33.2% from three and 72% from the foul line while allowing 70.2 PPG on 40.7% shooting from the field and 31.5% from three this season.
Seton Hall is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 road games. Marquette is 3-12 ATS in their last 15 Saturday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games against a team with a winning road record while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I get why you’d look either way here as Seton Hall is the better team but the line looks a bit funny with the Pirates only getting a bucket at home here. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as I think this total is a bit of an overreaction to the two sides scoring high totals as of late. Give me the under in this one.
