DePaul faces Butler on Wednesday, December 29th, 2021 at Hinkle Fieldhouse for a college basketball Big East matchup. 

DePaul is coming off a 72-66 over UIC in its last game on the road on December 14th. It has been over two weeks since DePaul has been in action and the Blue Demons are a strong 9-1 to start the season. We have seen DePaul have similarly strong non-conference starts in recent seasons but fall flat in Big East play, so it will be interesting to see which DePaul team shows up on Wednesday. DePaul's leading scorer so far this season has been G Javon Freeman-Liberty, who has scored 20.9 points per game, has earned 8.3 rebounds per game, and has also earned 3.9 assists per game for the Blue Demons. DePaul as a team has scored 81.6 points per game and has shot the ball at a 47.6% clip from the field. DePaul has also allowed 67.5 points per game to its opponents. 

Butler is coming off a 77-48 blowout loss to Purdue in its last game at a neutral on December 18th. That loss snapped a four-game win streak for the Bulldogs and now Butler is 7-4 to start the season as it prepares for its first Big East game of the season. Butler will be playing in its 7th home game of the season in this one, while DePaul has only played in two games on the road thus far. Butler's leading scorer so far this season has been G Chuck Harris, who has scored 11.6 points per game for the Bulldogs and has earned 2.7 assists per game as well. Butler's leading rebounder has been F Ty Groce, who has earned 4.1 rebounds per game. Butler as a team has scored 63.4 points per game and has shot the ball at a 42.6% clip from the field. Butler has also allowed 60.0 points per game to its opponents.

Butler is a 2-point underdog and the total is set at 132. DePaul has not really been tested on the road this season and last season Butler swept the season series and won both games by double-digits. I have to take the free bucket with the home team here.
