Seton Hall Pirates vs Villanova Wildcats 2/12/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Seton Hall Pirates will go against the #15 Villanova Wildcats in a Big East Conference clash in Wells Fargo Center, PA, on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at 1:00 PM ET. Seton Hall had a great start to the season, capturing nine of their first ten games.

 

During that time, the Pirates defeated then-No. 4 Michigan and then-No. 7 Texas, with Ohio State serving as their lone defeat. They had a rough start in the Big East, dropping six of their first nine matches.

 

Seton Hall won three straight games after overcoming adversity, defeating Georgetown, Creighton, and No. 25 Xavier. In all three victories, the Pirates were single-digit favorites. They have a poor record against the spread, finishing 3-8-1 ATS in their previous 12 games.

 

The Pirates are stronger defensively than offensively, with KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings putting them at No. 68. They shoot the ball poorly, ranking 280th in effective field goal percentage. They struggled from both the 2-point range (No. 286) and the 3-point range (No. 287). (No. 237).

 

With a strong offensive rebounding rate and a high free throw percentage, they can save some of their possessions. Seton Hall is up against a Villanova defense that ranks 21st in adjusted defensive efficiency.

 

  • The University of Seton Hall Pirates is 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Seton Hall’s last 9 matches on the road.
  • Seton Hall is 4-15-1 ATS in their last 20 matches in the Big East Conference.

Seton Hall Pirates vs Villanova Wildcats Predictions 2/12/2022

 

This year, Villanova did not get off to the start it hoped for, going 7-4 through its first 11 matches. During that time, the Wildcats were blasted out by then-No. 2 Baylor and Creighton. In early January, they went on a six-game unbeaten run, which included a 73-67 victory against Seton Hall in the teams’ first encounter.

 

Prior to this game, Villanova dominated five of its previous six matches, with the lone setback coming on the road against then-No. 24 Marquette. In their 75-69 victory over St. John’s earlier this week, the Wildcats were 6-point underdogs.

 

They are a fantastic offensive squad, with an adjusted efficiency ranking of sixth. Overall, their shooting stats are strong, with their free throw rate of 82.5 percent ranking first in the country. They’re also doing a great job of reducing turnovers, ranking 20th in the league. Villanova will face a Seton Hall defense ranked 30th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The University of Villanova Wildcats is 11-2 SU in their last 13 matches.
  • Villanova is 17-1 SU in their last 18 matches at home against Seton Hall.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Villanova’s last 9 matches played in February.

Seton Hall Pirates vs #15 Villanova Wildcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #15 Villanova Wildcats. Villanova won 18 of its previous 19 games at home, making them practically impenetrable. The Wildcats are also 17-1 versus Seton Hall in their previous 18 home games, so this is a house of horrors for the Pirates.

 

On Saturday, I don’t anticipate anything to change. Villanova will not be beaten by itself, and it will play terrific defense. This year, Seton Hall’s shooting is hit-or-miss, which does not bode well in a hostile atmosphere.

 

Villanova’s top-ranked free throw percentage might be the difference between covering the spread and not covering the spread down the stretch. The #15 Villanova Wildcats will win to a predicted score of 73-62.
