Villanova vs Seton Hall Betting Prediction

Villanova has been playing very well recently and they are making a late push to make the NCAA Tournament, while Seton Hall is also trying to stay in that same conversation. The Pirates will be at home for this matchup, but they are coming off of two lopsided losses against UConn and Creighton. Villanova has won five of their last six games and they played a great second half against Providence on Saturday. The Wildcats are only shooting 42.9% from the field, but they play very stout defense, allowing 65.4 points against per game. I have gone against Villanova a couple of times recently, but they keep finding ways to win. Give me the Wildcats on the road.
