Seton Hall vs. Creighton Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Seton Hall vs. Creighton 1/17/18

Can No. 19 Seton Hall go on the road and cover as a small underdog against Creighton when the two meet up tonight at 8:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Creighton is slightly favored at home, as the Bluejays are getting odds of -4 points against Seton Hall. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 164 points. Tonight’s game is set to take place from CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska and will air live on FS1.

Seton Hall is coming off a 74-61 win at home over Georgetown last weekend for its sixth win in seven games. The Pirates are 15-3 this season, 4-1 in the Big East and 9-9 against the spread. Seton Hall is averaging 80 points per game on offense while allowing 69.9 per game. Desi Rodriguez is leading Seton Hall with 18.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while Angel Delgado is adding 14.2 points and 11.7 rebounds per game.

Creighton is coming off a 92-70 loss at Xavier this weekend, which snapped a four-game win streak. The Blue Jays are now 14-4 overall, 4-2 in the Big East and 10-7 against the spread. Creighton is averaging 88.8 points per game this season while allowing 73.1 per contest on defense. Marcus Foster is leading Creighton with 18.8 points per game while Martin Krampelj is adding 12.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Seton Hall vs. Creighton

Seton Hall has won four of its last five meetings with Creighton, including one trip to Creighton. The Pirates have covered the spread in all four wins as well. The issue tonight is that the Bluejays have yet to lose at home, beating Butler by 11 and Providence by 19. The Jays lost by just six at Seton Hall earlier this season, so revenge will be on their mind. I think Creighton is a much different team at home, averaging 93.5 per game while giving up just 66.8. I don’t see Seton Hall being able to get the job done tonight. The public betting is backing Creighton as well.
