The DePaul Blue Demons and Seton Hall Pirates face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Prudential Center.
The DePaul Blue Demons have really struggled this season and coming into this game they sit with a 3-9 record overall. Coming into this game, DePaul has lost four games in a row, and in three of those four games, DePaul has also failed to cover the spread. In the last game against Providence, the offense could only manage 47 points and that led to the loss. On the season, DePaul is averaging 66.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 70.5 points per game. DePaul is shooting 41.3 percent from the field and 31.7 percent from behind the three point line. Charlie Moore has been the best player so far this year for this team averaging 13.7 points while shooting 38 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Seton Hall Pirates who sit with a 12-8 record overall and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Marquette, the defense was strong giving up only 61 points and that was the difference as they came away with the victory. On the season, Seton Hall is averaging 73.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 70.1 points per game. Seton Hall is shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from behind the three point line. Sandro Mamukelashvili has been the best player for Seton Hall averaging 17.6 points per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field.
The under is 9-0 in DePaul’s last nine games against the Big East. The under is 10-1 in DePaul’s last 11 games overall. DePaul is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games against the Big East. The over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings played between the two teams.
DePaul’s offense is an issue and I expect offenses are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for a slower paced game in this one and the under will cash with ease. Back the under to cash.
