The DePaul Blue Demons are probably the better team on paper, and they’re going to get the benefit of the doubt at home. However, the Samford Bulldogs are far from a pushover, and they have the offensive firepower to take the crowd out early and even pull off an upset here. I’m going to grab the free points with Samford, a game it could easily win outright.
