The Marquette Golden Eagles head into this tournament winning four of their last five games. The Marquette Golden Eagles are averaging 81.9 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 78.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Markus Howard is averaging 20.9 points and 3.3 rebounds while Andrew Rowsey is averaging 19.9 points and 4.7 assists. Sam Hauser is the third double-digit scorer and Haanif Cheatham is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Marquette Golden Eagles are shooting 41.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Marquette Golden Eagles are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30 rebounds per game. The Marquette Golden Eagles have won two of their last three neutral site games.

The Blue Demons are 6-21 ATS in their last 27 neutral site games, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Big East and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Golden Eagles are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big East and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Blue Demons are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings, the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The DePaul Blue Demons have been an inconsistent team all season long and head into this game ice cold, losing five of their last six and being outscored by 11.2 points and struggling at both ends. The Marquette Golden Eagles can have issues defensively at times, but they're lighting it up offensively, which includes shooting 50 percent from the field in their last five games. If shots continue to fall and DePaul continues this sluggish play, it's going to be a long game for the Blue Demons. I'll eat the reasonable number here.
