St. John’s is 1-6 against the spread following a win, 4-11-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 4-0 against the spread at home against a team with a winning road record. Seton Hall is 7-0 against the spread in their last seven road games, 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 games, and 1-5 against the spread on the road against a team with a losing home record. The home team has covered the point spread in 16 of the last 21 meetings of these two teams.
St. John’s has picked up their play of late but this is a tough spot against a hungry team and I expect Seton Hall to get the cover.
