The Golden Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pirates are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games and 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Golden Eagles are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Seton Hall and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
Seton Hall and its offensive production should prove to be too much for Marquette, a team that can go long stretches of playing ugly ball. The Pirates have been money ATS on their home court and should be able to handle this reasonable number as well.
