Marquette vs St. John's (NY) Prediction & Pick

St. John's has been a mess since BIG EAST play officially opened at the end of December. They stole an early conference win against DePaul at the start of the month but have dropped three straight BIG EAST matchups starting on Dec. 21.

Playing at home, this game should stay relatively close, but St. John's hasn't been able to generate enough defense to stop a strong Marquette attack.

Marquette ranks third in the conference at 81.5 points and has four players averaging double figures in Kam Jones (16.1 ppg), Olivier-Maxence Prosper (14.1 ppg), Oso Ighodaro (11.5 ppg) and David Joplin (10.4 ppg).

Don't expect the Red Storm, who have been allowing 83.3 points per game to opponents during this losing streak, to slow the Golden Eagles down.

Final Score Prediction: Marquette 85 | St. John's 80

Marquette vs St. John's (NY) Best Bet
