Creighton has won five straight games coming into tonight. The Bluejays are now 10-2 on the season with a 7-4 record against the spread. The Bluejays are just 4-4 ATS in their last eight.

Seton Hall has won two straight since a 71-65 loss at Rutgers last week. The Pirates are now 11-2 on the season while posting a 6-7 record against the spread. Seton Hall has failed to cover in three straight games. The Pirates are putting up 80.5 points per game on offense while allowing just 67.2 per contest. Desi Rodriguez is leading the team with 17.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while Angel Delgado is adding 13.5 points and 11.3 rebounds per contest.
The home team has won three straight meetings in this series, covering the spread in all three in the process. Creighton has an offense capable of winning, but their defense struggles and hasn’t shown up on the road. That should be the difference in this game, as Seton Hall has a defense that will keep Creighton in check and an offense that should score big against the Bluejays. The public betting is slightly with Creighton, but I will take Seton Hall at home.
