Score: 79 - 83
Point Spread: -5/-110 Creighton
Numerous facotrs at work here, despite the number. I LOVE going against teams off an upset win, especially a double digit dog winner. ISU stunned the nation and Wichita State yesterday, a game I saw in person, as I saw both these terams play yesterday. Creighton slayed a dragon in Evansville in blowout fashion, and Evansville was my sleeper and a team the Blue Jays struggled with all season and is a good team. In the 2 games these have played this season, Creighton won by a combined 37 points including a 102-74 win in Omaha Feb. 1. Creightion's size and all world All American forward Doug McDermott way too much for the outmanned, starry eyed Redbirds. Nice story for ISU, and beating the Shockers is commedable, but playing that style of defense against Creighton is futile and I doubnt the Blue Jays shit down their leg in ther second half like Wichita did yesterday. Creighton has won and covered all 4 games the past 2 years. McDermott had 45 points in the 2 games these 2 played, they have no answer to defend him, he will be the dfifference. Blue Jays have not ben the team they were in mid season and despite that they still have only 5 losses all year, they are ranked for a reason. Creighton has covered 24 out of 28 games on Sunday's, and while I am not a trend lover, that is impressive.
Play 1 Unit on Creighton
Play a half unit on Cal Bears at a pickem for a Bonus Play. Playing for PAC 12 crown...Stanford not good enough to hang.
