NCAA Hoops Tip : DePaul at Stanford 12/15
Midwest team has to travel far west to play the late game during the week. This is part of the corner that DePaul (5-4) is painted in when they travel to Stanford (4-3) on 12/14. Linesmakers have coupled this with another factor is pegging the Cardinal as seven point home favorites. Let HRWager examine this game and see where the value lay with a late night basketball bonanza on Tuesday.
Depaul appeared to be getting it while putting together a decent little win streak. Then they met Arkansas-Little Rock and the doors were blown off. 66-44 loss with under sixty percent from the line. Even the free things in that game did not benefit them. Worse yet, they were close to ten percent from beyond the arc. This team has average talent at best . Factor in some horrible streaks against the spread, and they have been a gamblers disappointment this season.
Good defense and Rosco Allen have been the high points for the Cardinal. If they are willing to work hard on Tuesday, they should be able to hold the slumping visitors in check. Meanwhile, senior Rosco Allen has been the star of this team so far. The defending champs of the NIT look to be on the right path heading into this once after throttling Dartmouth.
Road travels near the holidays from a smaller school is a recipe for disaster. The best chance for an upset would be if they met a team that relied on offense instead of work intensive defense. Here the Cardinal can keep pounding them until the knockout punch is delivered. Take Stanford -7 for your free pick of the day from HRWager.
