The Coach's EARLY BIRD SPECIAL *$25!*
(NCAAB) DePaul vs. Marquette, 03/07/2015 9:00 AM, Score: 48 - 58
Point Spread: -5.00 | -107.00 Marquette (Home)
Result: Win
Marquette sits dead last in the Big-East, and it will try to close the season on a positive note as they host DePaul in their final home game. This is a very winnable game for the Golden Eagles, facing a Blue Demons team that has lost six straight. I can't see the visitors matching the intensity of a fired up Marquette team this afternoon.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Previous History - The Golden Eagles have won five straight home meetings with DePaul, and eight of the last 10 overall. The Blue Demons needed to rally from a 13-point deficit to beat Marquette 61-58 earlier this season, but they might not be so lucky today.

2. Matt Carlino - After missing four games due to injury, the Golden Eagles leading scorer has tallied 48 points over the last three games. He was 5-of-9 from three-point range against St. John's on Wednesday.

3. X-Factor - The Blue Demons leading scorer Billy Garrett Jr. scored just seven points on 2-of-5 shooting in the loss to Butler last Saturday. He's failed to score in double-figures in each of his last three games.

Selection: This is a play on the Marquette Golden Eagles (8*)
