Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall enters the 2021-22 season with expectations to compete for the Big East title. The Pirates had their season end in disappointing of a fashion as any team in college basketball last year, as they dropped 5 of their final 6 games to choke away their NCAA Tournament bid.
Seton Hall added several transfer guards including Kadary Richmond from Syracuse, Alexis Yetna from South Florida, and Jamir Harris from American. Their top returning scorer is senior wing Jared Rhoden, who averaged 14.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Redshirt senior guard Myles Cale is also back after scoring 11.6 points per contest.
Everything came together in last Wednesday’s season-opener, as Seton Hall blasted Fairleigh Dickinson in a 93-49 final. The Pirates followed up that performance with an impressive 80-44 beatdown of the Yale Bulldogs, easily covering as 12.5 point favorites.
The #6 Michigan Wolverines have big shoes to fill after a solid 2020-2021 season which ended with a loss to UCLA in the Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament. Head Coach Juwan Howard has another talented squad poised for success and a deep postseason run.
Hunter Dickinson scored 27 points to lead #6 Michigan to a series opening 88-76 win over Seton Hall. The Wolverines followed that showing up with a 77-49 win over Prairie View on Saturday at home.
The program is glad to return last year’s scoring leader Hunter Dickinson. The sophomore center is a dominating player due to his 7’1″ size. He recorded an average of 14.1 PPG on a 59.8% mark from the field accompanied by 7.4 RPG last year.
Michigan made a big splash in the transfer market, receiving DeVante’ Jones from Coastal Carolina. The senior was one of the best players in the Sun Belt last year and finished with a dazzling 19.3 PPG.
Michigan scored an average of 75.8 points last year, placing them 68th in DI. The elite defense limited opponents to only 65.1 points, good for 47th overall.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Seton Hall is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games
- The total has gone under in 8 of Seton Hall’s last 11 games played on a Tuesday
- Michigan was 19-9 ATS last season
- The UNDER is 5-0 in Michigan’s last 5 games against Big East teams
Free Seton Hall Pirates vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAAB Prediction:
This will be another quality early season test for the Wolverines as they will faced with a tough Big East opponent. Seton Hall has looked very solid in their first games, winning by an average of 35 points.
Michigan is undefeated as well and their solid opening week showing, accompanied by some top losses, bumped the Wolverines from #6 to #4 in the latest AP Poll. Hunter Dickinson has carried this team so far with his domineering height but he will be faced with an unfamiliar challenge, not having a size advantage.
The Pirates start 7’2″ Ike Obiagu at center and although he is no where the talent of Dickinson, he should contest more shots than the Michigan big man is used to.
I’m taking Seton Hall to cover on the road and the total to go under in this 1989 National Championship rematch.
