4* Sunday BEST BET on Northern Illinois +19 This is a lot of points to be laying for DePaul here today. Northern Illinois is a team that hasn't gotten enough respect from odds makers lately, winning three straight ATS by keeping the game close to Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Dayton. DePaul is getting a little too much respect from oddsmakers in this one after posting some big upset wins over Auburn and Arizona State. DePaul has won the past two years against Northern Illinois by scores of 75-52 and 86-84, both times as 9.5 point favorites. What happens is the public sees the recent results and how these two teams have matched up the past two years and they want to jump all over DePaul. That has caused a couple points of inflation and the value to be with Northern Illinois on Sunday.
