UNLV vs Seton Hall Betting Prediction

Seton Hall struggled in their first game against St. Joe’s, but they bounce back with a dominating win over North Texas in the second round. The Pirates nearly made the NCAA Tournament and I think that was a major distraction in that St. Joe’s game, but they played great against the Mean Green. UNLV has had two solid wins over BC and Princeton and even though they finished fourth in the Mountain West, they didn’t get any of the six NCAA Tournament bids. Seton Hall has been great at home all season and I think that is going to be a big boost for them. The Rebels are a very solid team, but Seton Hall was fourth in one of the best conferences in the country. Take the Pirates here.
