Seton Hall has lost two games in a row, while Marquette is on a three game winning streak. Let’s take a look at the betting matchup and the Seton Hall vs Marquette prediction.

Seton Hall Preview

The Seton Hall Pirates are 13-7 (6-3) this season after they lost to Providence by a score of 67-63 in their last game. Seton Hall led 31-30 at halftime, but they only scored 32 points in the second half in the loss. The Pirates shot 32.3% from the field and were +7 in rebounding margin in the game. Seton Hall lost to Creighton by a score of 97-94 in the game prior to Providence, but did win the previous five games. The Pirates are scoring 74.5 points per game with 38.8 rebounds per game and 12.8 assists per game, while allowing 70 points against per game this year. Kadary Richmond (questionable) is averaging 16.4 points per game, 6.9 rebounds per game, and 4.9 assists per game. Seton Hall is shooting 45.1% from the field, 78% on free throws, and 32.9% on three pointers this season.

Marquette Preview

The Marquette Golden Eagles are 14-5 (5-3) this year after they defeated DePaul by a score of 86-73 in their last game. Marquette led 48-38 at halftime and they were able to add 38 points in the second half for the win. The Golden Eagles shot 54.5% from the field and made 15 three pointers in the game. Marquette defeated St. John’s by a score of 73-72 and Villanova by a score of 87-74 in the two games prior to DePaul. The Golden Eagles are scoring 77.6 points per game with 33.4 rebounds per game and 16.3 assists per game, while allowing 68.2 points against per game this season. Tyler Kolek is averaging 14.7 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game, and 6.9 assists per game. Marquette is shooting 46.9% from the field, 73.3% on free throws, and 32.5% on three pointers this year. 

Seton Hall vs Marquette Betting Prediction

Seton Hall comes into this game on a two game losing streak and they are unsure about their best player’s availability for this game. Kadary Richmond didn’t play in their loss to Providence earlier this week and they really need him if they want to keep this game close. Marquette has won three games in a row and they will be at home for this game. We have seen the Golden Eagles score at least 86 points in two of their last three games and I think they are going to continue to roll here. Marquette is a very solid home team and with Richmond’s status up in the air, I am going to take Marquette.
