Against The Spread Pick

DePaul could not be having a worse conference season this year. As it stands, they are 1-10 in the Bug East. It is not like they are getting blown out every time, but they just cannot finish a game. They just lost 76-72 to a decent Georgetown side, so for the most part, they have stayed competitive. Creighton are coming off a huge upset win that saw them beat the Seton Hall Pirates. The Blue Jays are now 8-4 in the conference and still sit second in the Big East. These teams met a few weeks ago and the Blue Jays got a 83-68 win on the road. Coming off an emotional win against the Pirates, the Blue Jays could be in a letdown spot. However, DePaul is just 3-13 against the spread in the last 16 head to head meetings, so I look for Creighton to win this game easily.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is one that I want to stay far away from. I really just cannot trust DePaul to score enough to keep up. Though, the Blue Jays are allowing an average of 72.8 over their last five games, so they are allowing their opponents to do quite a bit of scoring. Creighton are a much better scoring team at home, averaging 81.8 points. The over is 2-0 in the last 2 head to head meetings and I believe the Creighton offense will do enough to help push the total over.
