The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

St Johns is probably not very happy to have lost two conference games anywhere, so they are possibly going to be very focused and ready to take care of business at home on Saturday. DePaul has some nice players, but they are no match for the storm St Johns should bring at home on Saturday night.

Prediction: St Johns -10 Points

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This one should be money in the bank. Both sides play at a fast enough pace and shoot well enough to hit that total and then some. I also like the way both sides know how to control the ball. Finally, neither side seems that interested in defense so the over is the logical choice in this game on Saturday.

Prediction: Over 154 Points
