Against The Spread Pick

This could easily be one of the better games on the Saturday card as we have two elite scorers going head to head. The Pirates have really cooled off recently and are just 2-2 in their last 4 games. Marquette have been worse recently, going 1-3 over the same stretch. While both teams are projected to make the tournament, both sides need a big win here to regain some momentum. Some trends to consider show that the underdog is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. Furthermore, Marquette are 10-5 ATS at home this year and 8-3 in their last 11 games against the Big East. Seton Hall won 69-55 in the first meeting, however I like Markus Howard and the Golden Eagles at home, so I lean with Marquette to get the cover.

Over Under Pick

The fact that we have two elite scorers has me looking at the over. Seton Hall is averaging 74 points per game, while Marquette averages 77 points. The Golden Eagles are even better at home, where they average 80 points. Now over the last five games, both teams are averaging 75 points per game, so I expect there to be plenty of offense. The first meeting was very underwhelming, but I look for the opposite to be the case here on Saturday. Not really a total I want to bet, but my lean would be to the over.
