Against the Spread Pick
DePaul looked so good to start the season, starting off with an incredible 12-1 record…then conference play came, as the team hasn’t been able to find their footing. The Blue Demons are 1-7 in conference play, but they’ve curiously played well against ranked opponents. Their lone win during that stretch came by 13 against Butler, and they also fell to #14 Villanova in overtime. The team’s riding a cold stretch, but they clearly have what it takes to win on any given night.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, Marquette has somewhat turned around their season in conference play, going 5-4. That stretch includes wins in three of their last four, although they’ve played three extra periods in their last two games (although one of those came against ranked Butler). Marquette is also 10-1 at home, including 8-3 against the spread.
