The Seton Hall Pirates and DePaul Blue Demons meet Sunday in college basketball action at the Wintrust Arena.

The Seton Hall Pirates look to stay hot while building on their seven-game winning streak. The Seton Hall Pirates are averaging 75.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 69.6 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Myles Powell is averaging 22.6 points and 2.7 assists while Sandro Mamukelashvili is averaging 10.1 points and 7.6 rebounds. Michael Nzei is grabbing 5.1 rebounds and Quincy McKnight is dishing 3.1 assists. The Seton Hall Pirates are shooting 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 70.6 percent from the free throw line. The Seton Hall Pirates are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.6 rebounds per game. The Seton Hall Pirates have won two of their last three road games.

The DePaul Blue Demons need a victory here in order to snap a three-game losing streak. The DePaul Blue Demons are averaging 76.8 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 69.8 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Max Strus is averaging 18.6 points and 2.7 assists while Eli Cain is averaging 14.3 points and 4.2 rebounds. Femi Olujobi is the third double-digit scorer and Devin Gage is dishing 3.8 assists. The DePaul Blue Demons are shooting 31.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The DePaul Blue Demons are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.9 rebounds per game. The DePaul Blue Demons have won eight of their last 10 home games.

The Pirates are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Big East. The Blue Demons are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Big East and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 5-0-1 in Blue Demons last 6 vs. Big East. The over is 10-2 in Pirates last 12 road games. The over is 9-3 in Pirates last 12 vs. Big East.

The DePaul Blue Demons are more than capable of winning this game, as they're the better offensive club with more scoring options. The problem is the Seton Hall Pirates have won each of the last six meetings against DePaul and are 6-1 ATS this season in non-home games. Seton Hall is the more complete team with roughriders on their squad who are needed to win in spots like this. While I see this game going either way, I trust Seton Hall more than I do the Blue Demons at this point, so I'll lay the bucket with the road team.

Pick:
Seton Hall Pirates -2.5
