Creighton Blue Jays +1.5
Well, the Mo Valley looked bad last night with Wichita State going down against a well coached VCU team, but the Blue Jays won the post season Tourney in the Mo Valley, a conference I specialize, and I think they have the team here to compete and win against an average SEC team in Alabama. Creighton was as high as 13th in the polls this season and did fall from grace before the end of the season with a 3 game slide, but bounced back with 7 straight wins including a Tourney Championship. They are currently ranked in the Top 20 for good reason. Doug McDermott for Creighton is a Top 5 Player in the country, and can kill you inside and out, a big man that runs the floor and can also hit the 3-ball. Alabama struggles on offense and I just do not see an also ran in the SEC which is top heavy, beating a Mo Valley Champion with the best player on the floor, and bear in mind Creighton has a RPI of 24. If Bama gets in a shootout here and cannot dictate pace, which I do not think they can as Creighton pushes the ball hard, they are the lesser team.
Free Play on Creighton.
