Against The Spread Pick
Butler may have fallen out of the Big East conference race, but they could still make a dramatic story as they visit the Creighton Bluejays. The Bulldogs have lost three of their last four games. Creighton is just one game back of Seton Hall in the Big East title race. Butler is 2-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games, while Creighton has covered the spread in seven of its last eight games. The Bluejays have been hard to beat CHI Health Center, as they have won 19 of the last 20 games played there. They have split the last 10 head-to-head meetings. Butler was able to cover easily in the first meeting. The Bulldogs will have a lot tougher time on the road. Take Creighton to cover 5.5 points.
Over Under Pick
Butler’s scoring average continues to trend downward, as they are averaging less than 70 points per game this season. Creighton, on the other hand, continues to be one of the most explosive offensive teams in the country. The Bluejays had three straight games with 87 or more points before being a little less explosive with 73 points in their last game against Marquette. The last two head-to-head meetings have resulted in 136-point totals or less. So taking an over 139.5 total is a bit of a reach. Take the under here.
