November 16th: Seton Hall Pirates at Michigan Wolverines
The NCAA men’s college basketball season got this past week underway, and we have already been treated to some excellent games. This upcoming week will be no different as the non-conference slate continues and we start to get into the meat of the showcase and tournament schedule. With so many in-season tournaments this year, we are bound to find some excellent matchups that aren’t necessarily on the schedule but will be once the games are played.
This upcoming week will give us five excellent non-conference games that could end up shaping a season for a team. There is a good quality of non-conference Power Five games and a few really solid mid-major programs matching up with top teams in the country. Below, we look at five games across the country that can be some of the best games of the week.
NCAA Pirates vs Wolverines Predictions
In another highly anticipated Gavitt Games contest, the Seton Hall Pirates travel to Michigan to take on the #6 ranked Michigan Wolverines. These squads came away with a win to open their season, and Seton Hall did it very convincingly. Seton Hall took out Fairleigh Dickinson by 93-49 while Michigan beat Buffalo by 12 points. This will be a close game as both of these teams can play a high level of basketball.
These teams are averaging a combined 91 points a game this season and shooting north of 50 percent on the year. I would look for these teams to temper their scoring expectations a little bit because of the talent level that they are getting ready to face. Seton Hall covered quickly in their first game of the season, and I expect them to come ready and cover the spread again.
