Seton Hall vs. Marquette prediction and odds for Tuesday, December 27 (Pirates getting too many points)

On a slate of college basketball action with just five games to choose from, the clear highlight of the night takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where the Seton Hall Pirates face the hometown Marquette Golden Eagles in Big East conference play.

Marquette has had a full week to rest up after a double overtime loss on the road to Providence, snapping their three game win streak. Meanwhile, the Pirates have lost their first two games in-conference, but have covered in three of their previous four games.

Marquette’s elite offensive numbers will be put to the test against a top 20 defense in Seton Hall, but can they also cover a sizable spread at home?

Here’s the latest odds for tonight’s game of the night in college hoops, along with my Seton Hall vs. Marquette best bet for the evening.

Seton Hall vs. Marquette Prediction and Pick

I like the Pirates to hang around, especially with laying so many points in a conference game.

Marquette is the superior team, and given Seton Hall’s occasional ineptitude to score the basketball, there’s a chance Marquette could blow it open if their shots are falling.

However, the Golden Eagles’ best strengths are mitigated by the Pirates’ defense. Marquette ranks 17th in the country in KenPom adjusted offensive efficiency, while Seton Hall ranks 20th on defense.

Shaka Smart’s team takes incredibly efficient shots, ranked 12th in effective field goal percentage (EFG %), but Seton Hall also takes those shots away for most teams, coming in at No. 22 in college basketball.

The biggest takeaway for me is with turnovers. Seton Hall has turned it over 22.1% of the time; ranked in the bottom 35 of the sport, while Marquette’s havoc defense ranks 48th in forced turnovers. The Pirates’ defense when they can get set will slow down Marquette and limit their quality of shots, but if they give it away easily, that’s where this game could get out of hand.

It’s been early, but in-conference play, their turnover percentage has dropped down to 19.4%. Not good, but not as bad as before.

Shaheen Holloway’s guys can hang with Marquette regardless, so getting 7.5-points of wiggle room for a high quality defensive team is where I’m going tonight.
