Villanova is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 Tuesday games. The under is 7-3 in Villanova’s last 10 games. Seton Hall is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 9-4 in Seton Hall’s last 13 games. The road team is 8-0 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Villanova comes into this game as one of the hottest teams in the Big East and has won four of their last five games, while Seton Hall has lost four of their last five games. Villanova has played very good defense over the last three weeks and I think that will continue here against a Seton Hall team that has scored 60, 55, 54, and 62 points in their last four losses. I like Villanova on the road.
