Marquette vs Vermont Prediction | March Madness Expert Picks
Marquette has arguably been the hottest team in the nation this calendar year. Marquette has just two losses since the middle of December with both of those games coming on the road against ranked opponents. Their offense is ranked 25th in the nation and average just under 80 points per game. Defensively, Marquette is ranked fifth in the country as they force over 9.4 steals per game. The Golden Eagles don’t have a major weakness and have a great shot at a deep run in the tournament.
After starting the season just 2-7, Vermont became one of the hottest team in all college basketball. The Catamounts have won 21 of their last 24 games. Even more impressive, Vermont has won their last four games by double digits. While Vermont may be a low seed, they are as dangerous as any other as they have experience in the tournament as well. Not only is this their third NCAA tournament appearance since 2019, but the Catamounts also have seven seniors on their roster.
For as underrated as Vermont is as a team, Marquette has been on an absolute tear lately. They are as deep as any other team and even if their offense isn’t clicking, their defense can hold anyone in check. Although a double-digit spread is a big ask, feel confident with Marquette still being able to cover the spread.
