North Texas vs Seton Hall Betting Prediction

Seton Hall was not happy about missing the NCAA Tournament earlier this week, but they were able to avoid the huge distraction and picked up an overtime win in round one of the NIT. That first game was not pretty for Seton Hall, but I expect them to play much better in this matchup. North Texas has won three of their last four games, but they had a disappointing season in the AAC. The Mean Green do have solid defensive numbers this year, but they have allowed at least 71 points in four of their last five games. I think Seton Hall is the way better team in this matchup and now that they have had some time to cool off about the NCAA Tournament, I like them to win easily. Take the Pirates here.
