Point Spread: -5.50 | -109.00 Seton Hall (Away)
I like Seton Hall to cover the spread against DePaul in this game on Thursday. Seton Hall stumbled a bit around the turn of the new year but they have won 2 games in a row now and have looked much better as they broke out of their funk. They have played in 3 road games this year and have looked good in those games. Their only road loss was to Providence who currently have the best overall record in the Big East and that was a close game losing by 5 points. Their wins were on the road in Michigan and their most recent road win was at Butler by 15 points and they looked great in that game. DePaul has been struggling lately, they have lost 5 games in a row now and they haven't looked like the same team they were from before their covid layoff. Their last win was actually back on December 14, their next game after that wasn't until December 29 and they haven't won a game since before that 2 week break. All 5 games in a row they have lost have been in conference play too and I don't see that changing in this game. They have lost their 2 most recent games by 10+ points and their previous 2 games at home have also been losses by 10+ points. They look like they still haven't fully recovered from covid and I think Seton Hall is going to be looking to go on another big run now that they have strung 2 conference wins together. I like Seton Hall to cover the spread in this game.
T.M. Prediction: 78-64 Seton Hall.
