Randy’s Pick

The Albany Great Danes are probably going to be more motivated for this game than Seton Hall, but I'm not sure that matters. Albany is stuck in the mud out the gate offensively and is playing a Seton Hall side that seems focused. The Seton Hall Pirates have taken care of business against Saint Peter's and Fairleigh Dickinson and don't seem to be looking ahead to USC down the line. I like what I've seen from Seton Hall in the short sample size. Give me the Pirates in a comfortable home win.
