Xavier vs Marquette Preview

On Wednesday night the 16-ranked Xavier Musketeers travel to the 11-ranked Marquette Golden Eagles. This should be an exciting showdown between the Number 1 and Number 2 teams in the Big East conference. With a conference season Championship on the line, this game should have a March Madness feel.

Recent form analysis

Can Xavier Take the Lead in the Big East?

Xavier comes into Wednesday night winning seven of their last ten and averaging an eye-popping 80 points in their last ten games. Xavier has been playing lights-out basketball over the past month. Led by Souley Boum who is averaging 16.1 points and 4.9 assists per game. Xavier has played good basketball all season but has played extremely well against conference opponents this year currently sitting at 11-3 against Big East rivals. Xavier’s Best Chance in this game is to have better-than-average scoring nights out of leading scorers Souley Boum, Zach Fremantle, and Jack Nudge down low.

Xavier has been one of the most well-rounded teams in College Basketball all year with all five of their starters averaging over 10 points per game. Having four other scores on the court is a key reason why Souley Boum leads college basketball in assists with 5 a game.

Can Marquette Get their 9th straight Home Win?


Marquette is looking to make it 9 straight wins at Fiserv Forum. The Golden Eagles are 13-1 at home this year. At times this year and especially over the last ten games Marquette has looked like a top 5 team in the country. Largely due to their ability to score quick points in transition thanks to their up-tempo offense. Another big reason for their success has been the lights-out shooting by Kam Jones who is shooting almost 50 percent from the field this year.
Over the last ten games, the Golden Eagles have averaged a very respectable 80 points per game, but what’s even more impressive than that is the team’s average of 26 rebounds per game.

Xavier vs Marquette Head-to-Head

Xavier and Marquette met exactly one month ago in Cincinnati Ohio where the Musketeers were able to secure an 80-76 victory at home. Since 2009 these two teams have met 23 times with Xavier winning 12 of those games. Since 2020 the two teams have rotated wins depending on who has had home-court advantage

Betting on the game! (Marquette -5.5)

This is an interesting spread to me even though the Golden Eagles are playing at home these two teams have played each other relatively closely over the last couple of seasons with Xavier winning by 4 in their last matchup at home just a month ago. I think this comes down the wire again with it being a one-possession game at the end. If you are one to follow trends, the trends say Marquette will come out with the win at home, but really this is anyone’s ball game. The best bet here is to bet on Xavier to cover the spread.

Xavier vs Marquette Over/Under (159.5)

Both teams are averaging almost 80- points per game and on paper, it certainly looks like this game could be a barn burner. In the last matchups between these two teams, they scored 156 points combined. However, I think defense is going to play a key role in this game and would be supervised if both teams were able to score over 80 points. I think the best bet here would be to look at the scoring history between these two teams and bet the under.
