Both teams have been kind to bettors lately, with the Blue Jays winning five in a row and the Red Storm winning 8-2 over the odds (ATS) in their last 10 rounds. top/bottom instead?
This is odds via WynnBET:
Creighton has owned this game recently. In the last three matches between these two, the Blue Jays have won at least 15 games and averaged 12.5 points per game difference. Their solid defense, which ranks 13th nationally in effective-goal ratio, gave the Red Birds a stranglehold and they lit up a perimeter defense of St. John allows opponents to shoot 35.8% from outside the arc.
Strengths of St. And with poor free throw and lackluster shot percentage when they get there, the Red Birds will need to hit shots outside to stretch the Blue Jays’ defense or they won’t be able to score.
The Red Birds have covered three games in a row as a favorite, but those games go to teams that fall outside the top 275 in terms of 2-point defense in Butler and Georgetown. When they play elite inner defense like Creighton, they tend to have a hard time.
The Blue Jays were beaten 5-2 ATS this year and won four of those games. St. John’s are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as home favorites and I think Creighton will make them 3-9 tonight.
I’m on the Blue Jays to cover a modest spread but I’m also around 150. I think the Red Birds will struggle to score and Creighton is unlikely to shoot more than 50% from outside the arc again. Under is 6-1 with the Blue Jays being the underdogs and with their scoring problems and relatively low number of free throws (both teams are outside the top 275 in terms of free throws), I don’t see this game overshadowed. 150 points.
Select: Creighton +5 (-110) and UNDER 150 (-110)
