Against the Spread Pick

In a very competitive Big East where any team could win on any night, this is a very important game for the Red Storm. St. John’s are currently 2-8 in the conference, and are well outside of the projected field. A win over a ranked Creighton team on the road would do wonders for their resume. Obviously one win would not automatically get them in, but it would definitely help them. The Blue Jays are however 12-1 at home, so they have been a tough nut to crack. However, Creighton tends to be lackluster at times and laying 8.5 feels like too many points. For that reason, I like the Red Storm to find a way to keep it close.

Over Under Pick

There is no question that both teams can score the ball at a high level. Both sides average 74 or more points per game, but St. John’s on the road is where they have had a ton of problems. Trends would show that the under is 7-1 in St. John’s last 8 road games and the under is 9-2 in St. John’s last 11 against an opponent from the Big East. This total just feels too high, but it is not a total I want to bet. If you have to play it, it would be a lean to the under.
