Butler Bulldogs basketball coach LaVall Jordan has watched his team lose consecutive games by a total of two points. However, a trip to Chicago where they’ve won 18 straight could be just what they need moving forward.
The Bulldogs haven’t lost in the Windy City since 2007, but since their affiliation with the Big East Conference, they haven’t won on the road since January 31, 2018.
They score an average of (73.2) ppg on (45.3%) shooting from the field while allowing opponents (66.9) ppg on (44.3%) shooting. Leading scorer Kamar Baldwin (17.0) points per contest with Paul Jorgensen contributing with thirteen. The Bulldogs main problem is rebounding, they rank 320th in the nation, and that’s with two 6″11 players on the roster which tells me they must get more robust in the post. On the other hand, Depaul is the 50th ranked team in the nation at pulling down basketballs.
Butler has a clear advantage with their ability to shoot beyond the three-point line (36.4%) while DePaul hits them at a (31.7%) rate.
This Sports Handicapper believes for Butler to come away with a victory in tonight’s contest is to make a few three-point shots forcing them away from the basket.
Bovada.Lv, list the Butler Bulldogs at 40/1 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Tournament.
Dave Leitao has been on the bench at DePaul since the 2015 season and after Loyola Chicago made it to the NCAA March Madness Final Four a season ago he’s feeling pressure to win.
Senior guard Max Strus (18.2) points per contest lead the scoring for a Blue Demon team that puts up (76.9) ppg while they allow opponents (70.1) points. The (39.2) rebounds per contest are 48th in College Basketball, and it’s where the Blue Demons must attack a weak interior Butler team. Straus (7.6) rpg, Forward Paul Reed (7.3) along with senior forward Femi Olujobi (4.7) are all elite at hitting the glass.
The win at St.Johns was significant for the DePaul program, but the Red Storm were without their best player Shamorie Ponds. All-Big East teams have overall winning records; the Blue Demons are 2-2 in Conference play which places them in a tie with Georgetown and St.John’s. Leitao must also establish relationships with area high school coaches in talent-rich Chicago the way Ray Meyer did in the late 1970s to mid-’80s when Mark Aguirre, Terry Cummings, and Teddy Grubbs elected to stay home to play at the College level.
DePaul has one player who comes from the highly touted public school, and that’s Devin Gage.
The winning NCAA Basketball Handicappers at Charliessports.com are 13-2 when going on or against Depaul the past two years in Betting Predictions.
Bovada.Lv, list the Depaul Blue Demons at +60/1 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Crown.
