OUR PREDICTION: The Red Storm is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as an underdog, 6-2 against the number in their last eight games coming off a win, and are 6-1 at the betting window in their last seven home gmaes versus a team with a  winning road record. Creighton is going to be focused coming off its first loss of the season but St. John's has more than enough talent to hang with the Bluejays on their home floor.
