Georgetown at DePaul -4 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over

DePaul has played a daunting schedule thus far including back-to-back games against the Big East's top two teams, Villanova and Xavier. Once again, head coach Dave Leitao has failed to assemble a roster talented enough to compete on a nightly basis. Two of the Blue Demons' more effective offensive players, Max Strus and Marin Maric, are mid-major transfers. Veterans Eli Cain and Tre’Darius McCallum would be role players nearly every other team in the league. And freshman point guard Justin Roberts has a bright future but will undoubtedly struggle against better competition. Georgetown has drawn a lot of attention for its super-soft non-conference schedule but there are perhaps signs of potential. The Hoyas lost to Syracuse and Butler in overtime and lost by nine at Marquette this past weekend. Turnovers, not scoring, were the main problem with 62 miscues in those three games. What's noticeable with both squads is the uptick in tempo. With methodical point guard Billy Garrett gone, the Blue Demons have shown far more willingness to play with pace. And first-year head coach Patrick Ewing has preached since day one that he wants his squad to get up and down the floor -- hence the team's high turnover rate. The conundrum is pace doesn't always equate to offensive efficiency which is likely why the total has been played down from 148 to 145.5. But with a game projected to have north of 72 possessession, an average offensive night puts us within range to cash an "over" ticket.
