College Basketball Betting Trends

DePaul

The Blue Demons are 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games. DePaul is 3-14-1 ATS in its last 18 Monday games.

South Florida

South Florida is 6-2 ATS in its last eight non-conference games. South Florida is 3-9 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Prediction:

The Bulls have played all three of their CBI games at home and that has been a winning formula so far. South Florida is strong defensively, but is subpar on the offensive end. That is the exact opposite of what DePaul brings to the table. Tonight, I think defense prevails with the Bulls being at home. It's definitely possible for DePaul to return home and win two in a row, but this one I think is the Bulls' to take.
