15* CBB Tuesday No-Doubt Rout on West Virginia -13
DePaul vs. West Virginia,
02/28/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 75 - 92
Point Spread: -13/-109 West Virginia
West Virginia finds themselves squarely on the bubble after back-to-back losses to Notre Dame and Marquette. Highly motivated and playing for their tournament lives, the Mountaineers will come out with one of their best efforts of the season Tuesday.
It should be enough to cover this spread against the lowly DePaul Blue Demons. It has been a lost season for DePaul as they are just 11-17 on the year, including 2-14 in conference play. They are giving up a ridiculous 81.4 points on 50.1 percent shooting in Big East action, essentially playing no defense.
West Virginia has won each of its last six meetings with DePaul dating back to 2007. Five of those six wins came by double-digits. The Blue Demons are 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. Big East, and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog of 13.0 or greater.
WVU head coach Bob Huggins has been amazing in this spot. Huggins is 14-3 ATS in his last 17 after failing to cover 5 or 6 of their last 7 against the spread as the coach of West Virginia. He'll have his troops ready to go tonight in their most important game of the season. Take West Virginia Tuesday.
