Seton Hall Pirates vs Xavier Musketeers 2/26/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Seton Hall Pirates will meet with the Xavier Musketeers in a Big East Conference clash in Cintas Center, Cincinnati, OH, on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at 3:30 PM (EST). For the time being, Seton Hall seems to be secure in the NCAA Tournament field, having won non-conference games over Michigan, Texas, and Rutgers.

 

With a 17-9 record and a sixth-place finish in the Big East, the Pirates know they can’t afford any slip-ups in the last months of the season. They took advantage of a two-game winning run over DePaul and Butler to generate some momentum heading into the weekend.

 

Even though the Pirates defeated Xavier earlier this month, the fact that the rematch will be played on the road will be difficult given Seton Hall’s dismal road record this season. Seton Hall’s attack is just outside the top 100 in terms of scoring, and they do this using several methods.

 

Their ability to put pressure on the defense on the boards is tremendous, and they were able to generate 17 offensive rebounds in the first matchup.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Seton Hall’s last 11 matches.
  • The University of Seton Hall Pirates is 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches against Xavier.
  • Seton Hall is 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches in the Big East Conference.

Seton Hall Pirates vs Xavier Musketeers Predictions 2/26/2022

 

Xavier had a strong start to the season but battled in the last month to keep things going in the right direction as the season winds down. They only lost to Iowa State in non-conference play, but they beat Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

 

The Big East slate started strong as well, but the Musketeers only gained one of their past six games, and while the NCAA Tournament appears to be a foregone conclusion, the Musketeers realize that they must finish strong, especially with the remaining easy schedule.

 

Xavier is 17-10 overall and 7th in the Big East, but their home record of 12-4 should give them some confidence into the weekend.

 

Xavier’s offense is well-suited to defeat Seton Hall, but their difficulties from beyond the arc might come back to bite them on Saturday.

 

The Musketeers shot 51.1 percent from the field in the first meeting, but only 28.6 percent from the three-point range. Their main concern in the first encounter was losing the offensive rebounding battle 17-4, and the disparity in possessions harmed them in that game.

 

  • The University of Xavier is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Xavier’s last 7 matches against Seton Hall.
  • Xavier is 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches in the Big East Conference.

Seton Hall Pirates vs Xavier Musketeers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Seton Hall Pirates. Saturday’s matchup has two teams traveling in opposite ways, and with Xavier failing to find success, Seton Hall will find a way to stay in the match and keep it within one possession as the game progresses.

 

Seton Hall dominated on the offensive boards in the first game, and their ability to create second-chance opportunities will be vital in the rematch. Seton Hall is used to playing without Aiken, but Xavier faltered without Johnson and will most likely be unable to play another game without him.

 

In this game, the three-point shot will be crucial, and Seton Hall’s ability to dominate in that area on both ends will be crucial.

 

Seton Hall is 4-0 ATS in their previous four away games, while Xavier is 1-7 ATS in their last eight home matches and 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday matches, according to covers.com. The Seton Hall Pirates will win to a predicted score of 72-69.
