Actually, not a single team in the Big East has more than two losses at home this season. Big East Conference play is always extremely competitive and very exciting. Today’s game will be just that. Villanova and Seton Hall are currently both ranked in the top 25, however, Seton Hall is still looking for its first win in Big East play after dropping its first game against Providence earlier this year. Meanwhile, Villanova is currently 1-1 on conference play with a loss to Creighton and a win over Xavier. Read below to see how we feel about this game with our picks and predictions for the Villanova Wildcats and Seton Hall Pirates matchup in the Big East.

Villanova vs Seton Hall Prediction

The Villanova Wildcats are currently shooting an effective field goal percentage of 50.8 percent while limiting turnovers to 13.4 percent. The Wildcats will shoot a whole lot of threes and nail 35.8 percent of them. The Wildcats are also shooting 48.3 percent from inside and 76.4 percent from inside the arc on the season. Villanova has been solid on the glass, earning 31.6 percent offensive rebounds but it’ll be hard going up against a long and athletic Seton Hall team that has limited opponents to just 22.6 percent offensive rebounds. Villanova doesn’t see the foul line too often and it should stay that way on the road, in Newark. On defense, Villanova has also been great at limiting opponents’ foul line attempts and has held teams to 32.3 percent from deep and 49.1 percent from inside the arc. On the other hand, Seton Hall is shooting just 29.2 percent from long range but has hit 51.9 percent inside the arc. The Pirates have limited turnovers to 15.5 percent while getting to the line more consistently than Villanova. But it’s really Seton Hall’s defense that has won the Pirates’ games. The Pirates have held opponents to a 43.2 percent effective field goal percentage while also limiting teams inside at 45.2 percent. Seton Hall should be the better rebounding team and ultimately, will likely see the foul line more consistently. If Seton Hall is able to limit three-point shots from going in and dominate the glass, the Pirates will be on their way to a victory.
