Stanford is 4-9 against the spread against a team with a winning record and 2-5 against the spread against the Big East. DePaul is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games, 1-6 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 3-11 against the spread in their last 14 non-conference games.
This isn’t a very good Stanford team and while I see them getting the win the aren’t a good bet to cover the spread.
