NCAAB FREE PICK: Creighton -13.5
Drake vs. Creighton,
01/03/2012 20:05 EDT,
Score: 59 - 76
Point Spread: -13½/-110 Creighton
I believe this is a good spot to back Creighton at home, even though they come in favored by 13.5-points. The last time the Bluejays took the floor at home they lost 65-77 to Missouri State as a 10-point favorite. While that might seem like a pretty good reason to take the Drake Bulldogs in this game, the home loss actually makes Creighton worthy of some action. The Bluejays are 22-2 the next time they take the floor at home in this situation. Not to mention Creighton is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 home games.
Drake has not been a very good team as a true road team. They have had three legit road games this season. They are 0-3 straight up and against the spread. They are losing by an average of 23 ppg. The Bulldogs are just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. BET CREIGHTON -13.5
