Current Records: Northern Kentucky 2-2; DePaul 4-0

What to Know

The DePaul Blue Demons will play host again and welcome the Northern Kentucky Norse to Wintrust Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 5 p.m. ET Friday. DePaul is out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

The Blue Demons sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with an 84-80 win over the Western Illinois Leathernecks on Saturday.

As for NKU, it looks like they got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They fell just short of WIU by a score of 69-67.

DePaul is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. Those brave souls putting their money on NKU against the spread have faith in an upset since their team's 0-3 record ATS can't hold a candle to DePaul's 3-1.

DePaul's victory lifted them to 4-0 while Northern Kentucky's loss dropped them down to 2-2. We'll see if the Blue Demons can repeat their recent success or if the Norse bounce back and reverse their fortune.
