The St. John’s Red Storm and Marquette Golden Eagles face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Fiserv Forum. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was St. John’s that won 75-73.
St. John’s comes into this game with a 16-13 record overall and they have gone 15-14 against the spread. Coming into this game, the Red Storm have lost two of their last three games but the one win came in their last game against Xavier. The offense was elite in the last game scoring 81 points, and that led to the victory. St. John’s is averaging 79.8 points while their defense is giving up 74.1 points per game. Julian Champagnie has been the best player for St. John’s averaging 19 points while shooting 41 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Marquette Golden Eagles who sit with an 18-11 record and they have gone 15-14 against the spread. In the last game against DePaul, the defense really struggled giving up 91 points and that led to the defeat. Marquette is averaging 74.4 points while their defense is giving up 70.6 points per game. Forward Justin Lewis has been the top player for Marquette averaging 16.8 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from behind the three point line.
St. John’s is 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games against a team with a home winning percentage greater than .400. St. John’s is 4-1 against the spread in their last six road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Marquette’s last six games played on Saturday. The over is 4-1 in St. John’s last five games.
Away from home this season, St. John’s has been a different team, and not in a good way. I expect the Red Storm’s defense is going to struggle, and this game is going to get out of hand early for St. John’s. Marquette is going to run up the score, and the Golden Eagles will cover the spread.
