The Georgetown Hoyas (6-15, 0-10 Big East) travel to Chicago to face the DePaul Blue Demons (11-10, 2-9) Wednesday in a 9 p.m. ET game at Wintrust Arena. Below, we look at the Georgetown vs. DePaul odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.
Georgetown owns the Big East’s flimsiest defense, and the Hoyas have coughed up 80.3 points per game in losing each of 11 games since Dec. 18. GU has not won a true road game since Feb. 27, 2020, when it defeated … these DePaul Blue Demons.
The Blue Demons have had their own struggles this winter. DePaul is just 2-9 over its last 11 games. Shooting has been an issue for the Demons, who have connected on just 38.7% of their shots over those last 11 games. But DePaul is coming off a surprise road win, upsetting then-No. 23 Xavier 69-65 Saturday.

Georgetown at DePaul odds, lines, picks and predictions
DePaul 81, Georgetown 74
Youthful Georgetown has been wildly erratic this season, even with the quality of its losses. But it is coming off a string whereby seven of its last opponents have been significantly better than DePaul.
The Hoyas are a lean at +300, but STAND PAT at the current tag.
Against the spread
Recent road games at Providence (83-75 loss Jan. 20) and Butler (56-53 loss Jan. 29) provide enough ammo to consider taking the Hoyas and the points in this one.
DePaul is dealing with a couple key injuries.
GEORGETOWN +8.5 (-120) is worth a look.
In a matchup certainly befitting the 80s, look for the winning team to get into the 80s here. But likely loser Georgetown – with 3s and offensive rebounds –keeps things close enough to spiral the total past 150.
TAKE THE OVER 144.5 (-107).
