Marquette-Seton Hall Betting Odds

  • Money-Line: TBD
  • Total: 143

Odds Subject to Change

The opening betting line for the game’s spread favors Seton Hall by 7.5 points at home. The line for the total opened at 143 points.

Marquette has just one straight-up win in its last six games and it has failed to cover against the spread in 11 of its 14 Big East games this season. The total has stayed UNDER in seven of the last 10 conference games.

One of those losses (SU and ATS) was against Seton Hall on Dec.17. The 70-63 home defeat as three-point favorites was the Musketeers’ fifth-straight loss to the Pirates SU. They are 2-8 ATS over the past 10 meetings.

The Pirates are 3-4 SU (4-3 ATS) in their last seven conference games but they are coming off back-to-back road wins against Providence and Connecticut. The total has gone OVER in four of the last five games.

Seton Hall has lost its last two home games SU and ATS to Creighton and Villanova with the total going OVER in each contest. This followed a SU 5-1 (4-2 ATS) run at home this season.

Marquette-Seton Hall Predictions

The Pirates have gotten the best of things in this series over the past few seasons and Marquette will be hard-pressed to end the SU five-game losing streak on the road this Sunday.

Even with the Golden Eagles keeping most of their games competitive, I'm betting on Seton Hall while laying the 7.5 points in this matchup. Neither of these teams have been tearing it up on defense lately. I see that trend continuing on Sunday with the combined score going OVER the current total line.

  • Score Prediction: Seton Hall 81 Marquette 71
  • Best Bets: Seton Hall
  • Best Bets: OVER
