Against The Spread Pick
The Xavier Muskateers and the DePaul Blue Demons face off on Tuesday night and in this game the value lies with the Muskateers. The Big East has been ultra-competitive this year, and has been hard to predict at times, which gives me a little pause in this game. The Blue Demons got off to a fast start to the season but they come into this game having lost eight of their last nine games. One of the biggest issues for the Blue Demons has been their shooting from deep. Over the last five games they are are only shooting 27.7 percent from the field. I don’t love Xavier, but there is no way I am laying any type of number with the Blue Demons. Back the Muskateers.
Over Under Pick
The Blue Demons aren’t going to want to get into a shootout in this game, so they are going to try and slow down the pace. In three of the last four games they have scored 68 points or less, and in the other game they only scored 72 points. Much like the side, this is a lean, but if you need to bet this total, take the under to cash.
