UNLV’s Offense Has Impressed

UNLV’s offense has been impressive heading into this game, and they should have a ton of confidence. Two games ago against Princeton, UNLV won 84-77 and in the last game against Boston College, they were able to secure the 79-70 win. At halftime against the Eagles, the game was tied 37-37, but in the second half, they pulled away. Keylan Boone had a strong game, putting up 19 points and eight rebounds. UNLV is averaging 73.7 points while their defense is giving up 68.2 points per game. Dedan Thomas Jr is averaging 13.9 points while shooting 45.1 percent from the field. 

Seton Hall Defense Dominated Last Game

Seton Hall in the last game faced off against North Texas, and the defense was elite, giving up only 58 points, and they ended up losing by 14 points. Dre Davis had a strong game, putting up 18 points and four rebounds. Seton Hall on the season is averaging 72.8 points, while their defense is giving up 69.9 points per game. In this game, the defense is going to need to step up i in a big way here. Kadary Richmond is having a strong season, averaging 15.6 points while shooting 43.5 percent from the field.

UNLV vs Seton Hall Betting Prediction

I have been very impressed by UNLV’s the last couple of games, and they are going to continue that success here. In the last game, UNLV scored 79 points, and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Seton Hall is averaging 72.8 points, and they will find some offensive success, but they are going to struggle to keep up. Back UNLV to win this game and cover the spread here.
