Best Bet for this Game

This season, the Golden Eagles are 4-1-1 ATS against ranked teams, while the Blue Jays are 1-3 ATS against ranked teams. The spread for Marquette is 12–5, and the spread for Creighton is 8–10. Also, Marquette is 4-1-1 when bet against.

The Golden Eagles are 6-point underdogs on Saturday, and I think they will win. Their last game was against a hungry Providence team, and they made a statement by beating the Friars 50–26 in the first half. Although Marquette never fell behind, it did shoot poorly overall (56.9 percent), especially from beyond the arc (53.8 percent, 14 for 26). Tyler Kolek’s health for Saturday is still unknown, but I think the visitors will keep the score close.

It’s possible for Creighton to win this game, but not by four points. The Golden Eagles are 8-2 ATS in their last ten games, while the Blue Jays are 5-5 ATS. The Blue Jays lost the first game by 3.5 points and failed to cover the spread because they turned the ball over too many times and only tried six free throws. Also, they lost 30–20 in the paint. If the Golden Eagles had made more shots, they would have lost by more than 10 points.

There is a good chance that Marquette will cover this game because they will make more shots (48.4% FG%) and steal enough balls (9.0 steals per game).
