TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH
#780 SETON HALL (-8′) over DePaul at 8 PM EST
After facing three ranked opponents and posting a 1-2 SU record, Seton Hall will be elated to step down in class and tangle with visiting DePaul. The Blue Demons limp into this contest on a dismal 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS run, and this will be a difficult task for head coach Tony Stubblefield and his kids.
If the most recent blemishes to No. 15 Villanova and No. 24 Connecticut won’t have the Pirates fired up for this contest, then the memory of their ugly 96-92 road loss at DePaul back on January 13th will certainly be more than enough to do the trick. Thankfully, in the last 13 meetings between these two Big East squads, Seton Hall has come out on top inking a solid 10-3 SU record. Also, when coming off two or more straight up losses and locked into a revenge mode, the Pirates have been at their wagering best inking a lucrative 24-9-1 ATS tally provided their opponent arrives off a straight up loss as well. In this situation fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage less than .625, head coach Kevin Willard and his boys improve to a sensational 13-2-1 ATS.
After a hot start to the 2021-22 season, DePaul has hit the skids posting a woeful 3-12 SU record in its last 15 games. To make matters worse, in conference play, the Blue Demons have really struggled lately notching a dismal 12-46 SU and 21-37 ATS record in their last 58 tries including a woeful 4-21 SU and 5-20 ATS provided their opponent holds a conference won/loss percentage of .470 or less. Finally, DePaul is on a miserable 2-9 SU and ATS run in its last 11 when going into revenge.
Defensively, the Pirates have been a force over their last five games allowing only 66.4 points per battle and they’ll lean on that surging stop unit to help pick up this revenge win and cover. Take Seton Hall. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
