Villanova

The Bluejays are 4-0 ATS in their last four games as a home favorite. Creighton is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall.

Prediction:

Both teams are coming off a disappointing loss, but the Creighton defeat was against a better team and it has the luxury of returning home here while the Wildcats remain on the road. Both teams have some issues defensively, but are very strong on the offensive end and being at home I expect the Bluejays to be a little more comfortable. Creighton has been fantastic in its home arena and while it lost by 12 at home to Villanova last year, it also fell in overtime at Villanova plus is a better overall team this season. Go with the Bluejays tonight.
