DePaul Blue Demons vs St. John’s Red Storm. The NCAAB pick for this game is the DePaul Blue Demons. Even though DePaul dropped each of its previous two games, averaging only 58 points per game, the Blue Demons will face a St. John’s team that is without its best scorer and rebounder Julian Champagnie.

 

In seven of its past eight games against the Blue Demons, St John’s failed to cover the spread, including four of the last five at home. Because top shot blocker and rim protector Joel Soriano will not be in the court for St. John’s to clog up the middle, DePaul top scorer Javon Freeman-Liberty will be challenging to control and will be able to penetrate easier and either shoot or dish off to teammates. The DePaul Blue Demons will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 77-72.
