Marquette Golden Eagles (16-11; 13-13 ATS; 16-10 O/U) vs. DePaul Blue Demons (10-17; 13-13-1 ATS; 15-12 O/U)

The Marquette Golden Eagles will aim for their third straight win in a road matchup against the DePaul Blue Demons in Big East action Saturday afternoon from the Wintrust Arena. The Golden Eagles recorded a solid 85-73 home win against St. John’s on Wednesday, and the Blue Demons were crushed 93-62 by Villanova in their latest action. Marquette notched a dominating 70-52 home win against DePaul in the first meeting last month.

Marquette Defeats Red-Hot St. John’s

The Marquette Golden Eagles did big damage from beyond the arc in their 85-73 home win over St. John’s on Wednesday to improve to 7-8 in Big East play. The Golden Eagles posted a sizzling 50% mark from the field, including a 13 for 24 effort from three-point range, while holding the Red Storm to 44% shooting. Sam Hauser stepped up with a big performance, netting 24 points on 9 for 14 shooting. The sophomore guard has scored at least 15 points in five straight games, increasing his season average to 14.6 points on 51% shooting. Andrew Rowsey added 19 points along with eight assists in Wednesday’s win. The senior guard has reached the 20-point mark 13 times this season, and he is currently posting an average of 19.5 points on 41% shooting. Golden Eagles’ leading scorer Markus Howard is questionable for this one with a hip injury.

The Golden Eagles have won three out of their last four games, however they still remain in seventh place in the Big East standings. They are placed at 47th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Marquette is currently averaging 82.2 points per game, ranking them 31st in the country. Their defense has got them into trouble at times this season, and they are allowing an average of 78.1 points, positioning them 307th overall.

DePaul Falls to Villanova in 12th Big East Loss

The DePaul Blue Demons were overmatched in both ends of the court in their 93-62 road loss to #3 Villanova on Wednesday to plummet to 3-12 in  conference play. The Blue Demons posted a 43% clip from the field, while Villanova was able to convert on 59% of their shots. Blue Demons’ leading scorer Max Strus played well, sinking 21 points on 9 for 18 shooting. The junior guard has netted a combined 13 three-pointers in his last four games, and he is currently averaging 17 points on 41% shooting. Marin Maric went a solid 6 for 10 from the field for 12 points in the loss to Villanova. The senior center is quietly having a strong season,  averaging 14 points on a 55.8% field goal percentage, and he also leads DePaul with 6.4 rebounds per game.

The Blue Demons have dropped three straight and 12 out of their last 15 games as they are not strong enough on both offense and defense to win games with any consistency. They are positioned at 102nd overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. DePaul is scoring an average of 73 points per game, ranking them 209th overall. They are conceding an average of 74.4 points, placing them 232nd overall.

Trends:

The Marquette Golden Eagles are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against DePaul.
  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite.

The DePaul Blue Demons are:

  • 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games.

I am siding with Marquette in this contest. Marquette is playing well, winning three out of their last four games, and they are averaging a sizzling 85.2 points in that four game span. They will be up against a struggling DePaul defense that is conceding an average of 77.9 points in their last ten games. Furthermore the Blue Demons three-point defense ranks down at 310th in the country, and Marquette is shooting a terrific 40.8% from three-point territory. The Golden Eagles limited DePaul to 30% shooting in their 70-52 win in the first meeting, and they should be able to record a decisive road win in this one.
