Indiana State vs Seton Hall Picks & Prediction

Two teams that were snubbed the NCAA Tournament committee have an opportunity to finish their season on a solid note with a victory at the NIT Championship on Thursday.

Indiana State's offense continues to hum by outlasting Utah in the NIT semifinal, 100-90 on Tuesday. The Sycamores have topped the 80-point mark in nine of the last 11 games, while improving to 3-1 ATS in the NIT.

Seton Hall cruised to its third straight double-digit victory in the NIT by blasting Georgia on Tuesday, 84-67 as 5.5-point favorites.

After rallying past St. Joseph's in overtime in the first round, the Pirates have won the last three by 14, 23, and 17 points.

The Pirates have struggled recently in the underdog role by going 1-6 SU/ATS in the last seven opportunities. The lone win during this stretch came at St. John's in February, as Seton Hall erased a 12-point halftime deficit for the victory.

Three-point shooting has been a key part of Seton Hall's success in the NIT both on the offensive and defensive side. The Pirates have shot at least 40% from downtown in all three wins, while limiting their last two opponents to 10-of-47 shooting.

Indiana State is not afraid to fire away from deep as the Sycamores are coming off a 13-of-30 performance on 3's against Cincinnati and 12-of-34 against Utah.

Considering Seton Hall's recent issues as an underdog and Indiana State virtually playing a home game in Indianapolis, let's go with the Sycamores to finish off the job and grab the NIT title.

Pick: Indiana State -3 (-110)
