Bet on the Big East Tournament

Xavier has obviously looked good the last few nights, but I think that stops tonight. Creighton is an offensive team that I think Xavier will have trouble keeping up with, especially when playing in a third straight game. Creighton is averaging 92.8 points per game on offense at neutral sites. Look for the Bluejays to shoot their way past the Musketeers tonight.
