Monmouth vs Seton Hall Prediction & Pick

Two New Jersey schools meet to open the 2022-23 season in what is the 14th all-time matchup between Monmouth and Seton Hall. The Pirates hold a commanding 13-0 edge in the series, which includes 12 double-digit victories. The most recent head-to-head game finished with a 75-65 score.

Seton Hall should be able to keep up its dominance against Monmouth given it is playing in the Prudential Center. The Pirates shot 43.2% at home last season to go along with an average of 74.5 points scored. Head coach Shaheen Holloway starts his tenure as head coach off with a victory.

Final Score Prediction: Monmouth: 59 | Seton Hall: 75

Monmouth vs Seton Hall Best Bet

I'm confident trusting Seton Hall to win on Wednesday night, but I cannot say the same thing when it comes to backing them on the spread. Monmouth is an impressive 5-0 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games against the Big East. The Hawks are also 6-0 ATS in their last six games in November.

On the other side, Seton Hall is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven games against the Colonial Athletic Conference. A total of 10 players from last season are no longer on the Pirates roster, including leading scorer Jared Rhoden. It's going to take some time for Holloway to make adjustments.

Bet: Monmouth +20.5 (-105)
