Seton Hall vs UConn Betting Line Movement

Seton Hall vs UConn Prediction

This game, it's going to start with defense for both teams. The UConn defense is holding opponents to an effective field goal percentage of just 44,7 percent. Opponents are only hitting 34 percent of threes and 42 percent of shots inside against the Huskies.

The Huskies will foul at a higher rate than normal, but overall, are able to earn over 19 percent turnovers and limit offensive rebounds to 28.3 percent.

On the other hand, Seton Hall is shooting just 32.9 percent from deep and 46.7 percent from inside the arc. The Pirates will usually dominate the glass and earn a whole lot of second chances, earning an average of 33.3 percent offensive rebounds. There's also a solid chance that Seton Hall finds their way to the foul line at a consistent pace in this one. Meanwhile, Seton Hall has limited opponents to a 45.8 percent effective field goal percentage. Just like UConn, the Pirates aren't aggressive when it comes to turnovers, but are able to limit offensive rebounds slightly, at 27.4 percent.

The Pirates won't foul nearly as much and have held teams to 31.1 percent from three and 45.4 percent from inside the arc. Inside, UConn has had trouble scoring, hitting just 47.6 percent of shots. However, on the perimeter, the Huskies have nailed 35.2 percent of shots and continue to be aggressive on the offensive glass, earning 37.8 percent of offensive rebounds.

All in all, The Huskies should have more success on the glass and do a great job defending inside the arc. With Seton Hall having to play with so many guards injured and out, the Pirates are going to want to look inside more and more in this game. That just won't work against the Huskies.
