Saint Louis vs. Duquesne Prediction

I’m on Duquesne here. I get the allure of points with Saint Louis after picking up a win in the first round, but Duquesne is the better team in this matchup and dispatched of Saint Louis rather easily in the lone meeting this season. This isn’t the same Saint Louis team of years past. This Saint Louis team doesn’t have the same fight and grit of past teams and I think Duquesne gets the job done here.

Chris’s Pick Duquesne -6.5
