The St. John’s basketball plays host to the red-hot Monmouth Hawks in a pivotal game.
Monmouth (7-1) does not hold the same status as Indiana or Kansas but Thursday night is a big game for the St. John’s basketball team.
The Johnnies will welcome the Hawks for one of its final non-conference games as Monmouth is riding a seven game winning streak entering Queens.
Led by head coach King Rice, Monmouth already has a signature 2-point road victory over Cincinnati on its resume as the program looks to contend for a MAAC Championship, led by senior George Papas and former Seton Hall guard Shavar Reynolds.
St. John’s Injury Report vs. Monmouth
St. John’s appears to be back at full strength for its matchup with Monmouth.
The Johnnies are still nursing back freshman guard Rafael Pinzon after missing three games with a fractured left ring finger and Posh Alexander is still not 100-percent as he continues to deal with a calf injury.
However, both players are expected to play against the Hawks.
St. John’s vs. Monmouth Odds: Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
WynnBET’s College Basketball Odds lists St. John’s as 9-point favorite over Fordham on Thursday night while the total is listed at 152.
St. John’s has not covered in a game since its loss to Indiana, its the third game of the season, but continues Vegas to view the Johnnies as a staunch team despite its inability to win by large point differentials.
Do not get it twisted, Thursday night is a big game for the Red Storm as the team only has two more outings (Sunday and next Saturday) before Big East play begins against Seton Hall on December 20.
We will take the Johnnies to cover the spread as the total will go under the number listed.
