The Pirates have gotten off to a really good start this season but this will be a big test as to how legit they really are.
When they are at their best there is probably not a better team in the Big East than Villanova, who will look to knock the Pirates down a peg.
Seton Hall Pirates:
Seton Hall has to be one of the pleasant surprises in the Big East, nobody is talking about it though thanks to the likes of Butler and Xavier being strong too.
The Pirates and Wildcats are both 2-0, the only undefeated teams in league play but what really got the basketball world’s attention was their win over Wichita State.
Overall this is a strong defensive team with enough offense to win. They are led by Isaiah Whitehead at 15ppg, a player who needs to improve his shooting and playmaking abilities. His percentages and ratios are not impressive.
On the glass they rely on Angel Delgado who is averaging nearly a double-double at 9.7/10.3.
These teams seem similarly constructed so it will be interesting to see if the Pirates can beat Villanova at their own game.
I think most are still trying to figure out just how good this Villanova team is. Their losses are not that troubling but something seems to be missing. Their recent domination of Xavier was very encouraging though.
I think the challenge is that as good as this group is they lack that elite level type of scorer. Josh Hart is a very good player and leading the team with 15.5ppg but he does not put a lot of fear in you the way a Scottie Reynolds type does.
Freshman Jalen Brunson seems to be coming along and provides them with that much more depth on the perimeter. Maybe he is pushing Ryan Arcidiacano too as his shooting and scoring are up.
Delgado will tangle with Daniel Ochefu, a post of similar size and style, averaging 10/8. It is quite likely that these guys essentially cancel each other out.
Villanova is playing good ball right now and has covered in each of their first two league games, winning both by double digits.

A traditional Big East battle is always fun and we get two teams playing well right now. Seton Hall still has questions though.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Seton Hall ATS
I see no upset potential here but those 14 points seem a little too generous for Villanova. This one finishes in the 7-10 point range.
