THE LINE: Nothing, last I checked. What is with Vegas and not putting early odds up on these early season games, huh? Where’s the Supreme Court on that one, huh? And where’s my Potawatomi Casino sports book, anyway? TIME IS WASTING.

THE PROJECTION: KenPom gives Marquette a 99% chance of victory in this game, with a predicted score of 92-67. In case you were wondering, yes, that would be a bigger margin than DePaul beat the Wildcats on Wednesday. Let’s do that, shall we?
