In the game between Xavier and Marquette we are looking into a game between number four in the Big East who will visit number eight, Marquette. The bookies obviously think it will be a game with the defence in focus, and I think we have a good bet coming in here.
Marquette and Xavier are both looking into this game with four restdays in the bank. Marquette took a good win away from home, as the beat DePaul 77-71. Xavier took a disappointing loss against Georgetown, and are generally struggling away from home.
Looking into the head to head against Marquette however, the last four games have been highscoring games and right now the bookies are offering us a pointline balancing on 144 point. Eight out of the last nine games between the two have gone far over this line, and we are looking for this to be repeated tonight after a good rest to Marquette and Xavier.
NCAA Pick of the game: Over 144.5 points
