Xavier vs Marquette Betting Prediction

Here is our Xavier vs Marquette Betting prediction.

Today is the last game of the regular season for the Marquette Golden Eagles. They will play the Xavier Musketeers on the road this Saturday. We are now 22-8 for the season and 13-6 in Big East play. Their two losses in a row have put them tied for second place in the conference results.

Since their last loss at Butler, the Musketeers have lost 9 of their last 10 games in the Big East. Their total record is 15–15. In the Big East, the Musketeers are in eighth place. The first tap will happen at 5 p.m. EST.

Marquette Golden Eagles Betting Prediction

First, we have the Xavier vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Golden Eagles.

Because of injuries and a tough schedule at the end of the season, the Marquette Golden Eagles need to win their last game before the end of the Big East regular season. The Golden Eagles lost to #2 UConn 74–67 at home on Wednesday night.

This was the Hawks’ second straight win over Marquette this season. At the half, the Huskies were ahead by 11. In the second half, the Golden Eagles’ defense tightened up, but it wasn’t enough. Oso Ighodaro scored 16 points, and Kam Jones scored 18 points to lead the team. Tyler Kolek, Marquette’s point guard and top scorer, was not available again because he might not be able to play in the Big East Tournament because of an oblique injury.

The Golden Eagles would like to have some confidence going into the Big East Tournament next weekend. They can do this by beating Xavier on Saturday. They are fifth in the Big East in points scored going into this game. They make the third most field goals and the fifth most three-point shots.

In terms of 3-point field goals made per game, they are also fifth. The Golden Eagles are seventh in the Big East this season in stopping points. They rank seventh in defense against field goals and sixth in defense against three-pointers. They have the 10th most rebounds per game in the league and the first fewest turnovers.

Golden Eagles Key Injuries: Kolek is out.

Xavier Musketeers Betting Prediction

Second, we have the Xavier vs Marquette Betting prediction for the Musketeers.

After losing to Butler 72–66 on the road last Wednesday night, the Xavier Musketeers dropped to.500 on Wednesday night. They are now 15–15 overall and 9–10 in the Big East after the loss. The Bulldogs got out to a big lead in the first half with a 17-0 run. The rest of the game, they would only get as close as five points.

Desmond Claude scored 17 points for the Musketeers, 13 of which came in the first half. In a loss, Dayvion McKnight and Quincy Olivari both scored 13 points, and Olivari also grabbed nine boards.

The Musketeers’ best chance of making the playoffs is through the NIT, unless they have an odd run through the Big East Tournament and win the tournament. Still, they need at least one or two wins to get there. They can start by getting back at Marquette after losing there by 14 points on February 25.

This season, the Musketeers have scored the fourth most points in the Big East. They’re eighth in making field goals and only eleventh in making three-point tries. This season, the Musketeers have made the ninth-most 3-pointers in the league. They are ninth in the league when it comes to score defense.

Their field goal defense is eighth best and their three-point defense is tenth best. Their total boards per game are good for fourth in the Big East. Their turnovers per game are second in the Big East, just behind Marquette.

Musketeers Key Injuries: F Sasa Ciani is questionable.

Xavier vs Marquette Betting Pick

There’s a good chance that the Golden Eagles will be able to beat the Musketeers even without Kolek on Saturday. The game was on February 25, and the Golden Eagles won at home by 14 points. Even though Kolek won’t be back until after the Big East Tournament, Marquette still wants to be a #2 spot in the NCAA Tournament.

They will need to finish the season strong, though. According to the Big East, the Golden Eagles have the fewest turnovers per game, which means they don’t waste offensive opportunities.

Because Marquette shoots the ball better than Xavier, that will be very important in this game. Marquette is first in the Big East at making 3-point shots, while Xavier is only eleventh. In the first game, Kam Jones scored 34 points against the Musketeers, and I think he will do the same in this one.

  • Xavier vs Marquette Betting Prediction: Take the Golden Eagles.
