The Seton Hall Pirates and St. John’s Red Storm face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Madison Square Garden.
These two teams faced off once so far this season and it was St, John’s that was able to come away with the 81-71 victory.
The Seton Hall Pirates come into this game with a 13-12 record overall but coming into this game they have lost four games in a row. That lost was against St. John’s and the defense really struggled. Seton Hall on the season is averaging 71.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.6 points per game. Seton Hall is shooting 44.5 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from behind the three point line. Sandro Mamukelashvili has been the best player for Seton Hall averaging 17.8 points while shooting 45 percent from the field and 34.5 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the St, John’s Red Storm who sit with a 16-10 record overall and coming into this game they have won two games in a row. Each of the last two games, St. John’s has scored 81 points. St. John’s is averaging 79.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 76.7 points per game. St. John’s is shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 34.9 percent from behind the three point line. Julian Champagnie has been the best player for St. John’s averaging 19.9 points while shooting 43.9 percent from the field.
Seton Hall is 24-8 against the spread in their last 32 games played on Thursday. The over is 35-17 in Seton Hall’s last 52 games played on Thursday. The under is 7-1 in St. John’s last eight neutral site games. The over is 11-3 in St. John’s last 14 games played on Thursday.
Seton Hall is really struggling and I think that is going to continue in this game. Look for St. John’s offense to have a big game and that will lead them to come away with a cover of the spread. Back St. John’s against the spread.
