Seton Hall is coming into this game as a 1 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Seton Hall has been playing great in their first few games to start the season and they already have a big win over a top 10 ranked Michigan team and they will be looking to take down another ranked team here. Seton Hall is playing good defense right now and should be able to get some stops in this game and give themselves the edge.
