Seton Hall has won its last 4 games against Rutgers by an average margin of close to 19 points. They are primed to extend their 7-1 SU run at Rutgers.

Rutgers has been relatively predictable this season: 3-0 SU as favorites, but 0-3 SU as underdogs. They've bullied lesser teams with their defense, holding squads like Cleveland State and Coppin State to less than 40 points.

Not only has their defense failed to measure up against top-flight competition, they lack the tools on offense to keep pace. They have to hope for an off-night from their opponent to have a chance. Like when Florida State hit 62% of their free throws or Michigan State hit only 38% of their shots inside the arc. In both of those games, as well as their other top-flight game, an 89-67 loss at Minnesota, they still couldn't pull off the win because they lack reliable shot-makers with which to take over a game.

The Scarlet Knights rank outside the top 300 in both 3-point % and 2-point %. They have 1 player who hits over 40% from three, but he hardly factors into their number of shots and possessions. They have only 1 other player who hits over 30% from three. Additionally, they have 1 player with significant playing time who hits more than half his shots inside the arc.

Meanwhile, Seton Hall has a variety of scoring options who are consistent and even prolific inside the arc and who have accumulated significant experience in this rivalry series. Seniors Desi Rodriguez, Angel Delgado and Khadeen Carrington are SH's top playmakers. Thez are 3-0 against Rutgers in their career. Carrington is 287th in assist rate and leads the team with 4.2 assists per game. Delgado makes over half his shots inside the arc and Rodriguez, who leads the team with 19.4 points per game, over 60%.

Seton Hall is a highly-ranked defensive machine with the experienced playmakers to put away Rutgers.

No. 17 Purdue (10-2) plays in-state rival Butler (8-2) at noon at the Crossroads Classic at Indianapolis. Purdue is favored by 6.5 points.

Butler has recently owned Purdue, but the series trend is apt to change. Butler has won their last 5 against Purdue, but they only play every 2 years. In 2014, when Butler beat Purdue, Purdue was an inferior squad with a losing record. In 2016, Butler had one of the most efficient offenses in college basketball. This season, Purdue has amassed a 5-1 record so far against top-60 (per KenPom) teams to Butler's 2-2 record.

This is a Butler team that, contrary to 2016, is struggling to find scoring opportunities. They've exceeded 70 points in only 1 of those 4 games against top-60 opponents. They rank 282nd in 3-point %. They have one important shot-taker who is averaging over 40% from three, but not another significant contributor who is averaging even 30%. They don't reach the free throw line frequently, either, ranking 317th in the category. They'll struggle to score against a Purdue squad that held Arizona to its second-lowest point total (64) and Louisville to its lowest point total (57) on the season.

Offensively, Purdue has one of the highest-ranked half-court offenses. They don't commit many turnovers, ranking 29th in the category. They rank in the top-50 in 3-point and 2-point completion. Vincent Edwards, Carsen Edwards, Dakota Mathias, PJ Thompson and Isaac Haas all return from last year. Thompson and Mathias are making close to half of their threes. Haas and Carsen Edwards are making over 60% inside the arc.

Purdue is an even more highly-ranked defense than Butler in terms of efficiency, despite their strength of schedule. Purdue also boasts an experienced and deeper group of playmakers, who are enjoying early-season success.

No. 3 Wichita State (8-1) hosts Oklahoma (7-1) at 4 PM ET. The Shockers are favored by 7.5 points.

Oklahoma's new-look team, which ranks outside the top 300 in terms of returning experience, will both face a hostile environment and be a road dog for the first time this season. Dating back to last season, Lon Kruger's Oklahoma is 3-11 SU in their last 14 road games. Wichita State, meanwhile, has won 23 of their past 25 games, both losses coming away from home.

The Sooners still have a lot to prove. They have one quality win thus far against a top-50 opponent, taking advantage of an amazing night behind the arc to eke a victory against USC as 3-point favorites. Their other toughest test was a 9 point loss against Arkansas. Conversely, Wichita State took Notre Dame to the wire and has three decisive victories on the road against Marquette, No. 16 Baylor and Oklahoma State.

The top scorers for Oklahoma need to be more consistent. In the two games in which Christian James, Oklahoma's second-most efficient scorer inside the arc, made at least half of his threes, he made less than 40% in the following game. He was 5-for-6 against USC. Khadeem Lattin is Oklahoma's most productive player inside the arc. He is unreliable against higher-quality defenses, scoring only 5 points against USC's 35th-ranked defense in terms of efficiency and 5 against Oregon's 60th-most efficient defense. Wichita State ranks 13th in defensive efficiency, having held Notre Dame to its second-lowest scoring output on the season and Baylor to its lowest.

Shandry Lamet is the most versatile Shocker because he is consistent both inside and outside the arc. He ranks 35th in 3-point completion % and is completing 57% inside the arc. He also ranks 164th in assist rate. Lamet looks to build off his 30 point performance against Oklahoma State. Shaquille Morris is likewise tough inside the arc, hitting 59.4% completion. He also ranks 53rd in block %. Behind the likes of Lamet and Morris, the Shockers rank 27th in 2-point % and 41st behind the arc.

The Shockers, who rank 8th in returning experience, are, like Seton Hall and Purdue, an experienced crew who have proven to bettors long-term that they can provide wins against quality opponents, a consistently top-notch defense, a highly efficient offense and big plays when necessary down the stretch.
