Butler vs. Depaul Prediction

I’m on Butler here. Sure, it’s a huge number on the road, but Depaul’s shown nothing during the course of conference play against anyone not named Georgetown that they’re competent and capable of keeping a game within reach. 12 of Depaul’s 17 losses in conference play have come by 20+ points. Yikes. Give me Butler here.
