College Basketball Betting Trends
The underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The Bluejays are 17-9 ATS in games this season.
The Red Storm are 2-3 ATS in the last five meetings. Four of the last five meetings have gone under the total.
Creighton has a scary good offense and already posted a 94-82 home win over St. John's four weeks ago. Aside from a putrid performance at Providence, road games have not slowed down the Bluejays lately. St. John's is a beat up and inexperience squad that only has three wins since the turn of the calendar. Don't expect the Red Storm to keep up with a top 10 team in the nation.
