The Seton Hall Pirates and the Providence Friars meet in college basketball action from the Amica Mutual Pavilion on Saturday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Providence is listed as an 8.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 140.5 points.
For Seton Hall, Kadary Richmond is the latest name added to the list, questionable for this game with a back injury, while Providence still has Quante Berry still listed as out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury.
Providence’s 71-67 win back on December 17th, 2022, made it back-to-back wins for the Friars in this head-to-head matchup.
Seton Hall is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following an ATS loss while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 Saturday games. Providence is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.
I’m leaning towards Seton Hall here. This is a solid matchup and the Friars are in better form, and not only is it senior day for the Friars but a win here puts the pressure on Xavier to get a win to avoid a potential tiebreaker spot. That being said, four of the last five meetings have been decided by five points or less, and this just feels like a game that ends up being tight as a vice. I’ll take my shot with the Pirates and the points here.
