Pick Against The Spread

Marquette is one of the better shooting teams, and only Creighton
and Mississippi State have held them below 70 points. They’ve averaged nearly 15 points over
their opponent’s defensive scoring average and could win this going away if they can stay out
of foul trouble. That said, I like the Seton Hall defense. They have held their opponents to
below their average in scoring, FG%, and 3-point shooting. The Pirates played Xavier tough,
holding them to 73 points. Their second-lowest scoring output on the season. On the offensive
side of the ball Seton Hall is ranked 274th in scoring. 256th, in FG% and 274th in FT%. Take the
