St. John’s vs Seton Hall Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup playing very well recently, but Seton Hall will be at home for this matchup. The Pirates are on a four game winning streak and have knocked out Marquette and Providence during the streak. St. John’s came up just short on the road against Creighton in their last game, but they had wins over Providence and Villanova prior to that loss. Seton Hall is the slightly better shooting team and I think they get the job done at home. These are two very solid Big East teams and I expect a good game, so give me the points at home with Seton Hall.
