Seton Hall Cashing Against Big East

Despite a rocky start to their conference schedule, the Seton Hall Pirates have been an amazing bet within the Big East. Seton Hall is 8-2 ATS in their past 10 outings against the conference, including a SU and ATS win in their first meeting with the Providence Friars this season. Seton Hall and Providence will meet for the second time this season Thursday with the two teams trending in different directions.

  • The OVER is 6-1 in the past seven games between Seton Hall and Providence.
  • Providence is 0-5 ATS in their past five outings.

Providence has been unable to buy a bucket as they have shot 37.5 percent from the floor while only twice eclipsing the 40 percent mark in their past seven games.
