Marquette opens as a 5.5-point favorite and the total is set at 134. In a game that is virtually meaningless, I will take DePaul and the points at home. DePaul has shown a sign of improvements in its last five games, which includes an outright win over St. John's. I cannot lay 5.5 points with Marquette on the road, so I will lean DePaul here.
