DePaul

The Blue Demons are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four road games. DePaul is 4-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Big East.

Marquette

The Golden Eagles are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games. Marquette is 1-4 ATS in its last five Wednesday games.

Prediction:

A lot of the favorites don't seem to be favored by enough today and I'm looking to take advantage. Marquette is another example. The Golden Eagles are solid if not spectacular on both ends of the court and face a DePaul squad that really struggles defensively and often is out of wack on the offensive end as well. The Blue Demons have won their last two road games, but I don't see it lasting here. While DePaul does have an extra day of rest and preparation, I don't see it matching up well with Marquette.
