Marquette had enough points to win and then some against the Xavier Musketeers on Sunday, taking their game 75-64. Marquette relied on the efforts of forward Justin Lewis, who dropped a double-double on 20 points and 13 rebounds, and guard Darryl Morsell, who had 19 points and seven assists.
Meanwhile, Seton Hall suffered a grim 84-63 defeat to the St. John's Red Storm on Monday. Guard Myles Cale put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 16 points.
Marquette is expected to lose this next one by 6. They are currently six-for-six against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
The Golden Eagles' win brought them up to 14-6 while the Pirates' defeat pulled them down to 12-6. Two stats to keep an eye on: Marquette enters the contest with 5.2 blocked shots per game on average, good for 26th best in college basketball. But Seton Hall is even better: they rank 16th in college basketball when it comes to blocked shots per game, with 5.6 on average. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
