College Basketball Betting Trends

Creighton

The Bluejays are 4-1 ATS in their last five games. The road team is 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Seton Hall

The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. Seton Hall is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 home games.

Prediction:

Creighton has been up-and down on the road this season with a victory at Villanova highlighting matters. But the last time out away from home for the Bluejays was a 17-point setback at Providence. While The Bluejays are elite offensively, they are taking on an elite defensive squad in Seton Hall in a hostile environment. Coupled with the fact that Creighton leaves something to be desired on the defensive end and I'd rather take the home team in this spot.
