Shane’s Free Pick
This DePaul defense is an issue and it’s what is going to hurt them here. The Dons on the season are averaging 85.5 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. DePaul’s offense is fine, but they aren’t going to keep up and it will be San Francisco that is going to get the job done. Back San Francisco against the spread to cash here.
