Villanova vs Creighton Betting Prediction

Here is our Villanova vs Creighton Betting prediction.

On Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET, No. 10 Creighton (22-8 SU, 13-6 BEast) will travel just outside of Philadelphia to play Villanova (17-13 SU, 10-9 BEast).

Both teams lost their last game against each other on December 20. The Wildcats won 68-66 in overtime as a 9.5-point home favorite. Eric Dixon scored 32 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead Villanova.

Baylor Scheierman (16 points, 11 rebounds) and Trey Alexander (16 points, 15 rebounds) each had a double-double to lead the Bluejays.

Creighton Bluejays Betting Prediction

First, we have the Villanova vs Creighton Betting prediction for the Bluejays.

Creighton is a sure thing to make it to the NCAA Tournament. In his most recent Bracketology report, Joe Lunardi ranked them as the third best team ever. The NCAA Net Rankings put them 11th. They have a 7-6 record against Quad 1 teams and a 7-5 record on the road. In their last seven games, the Bluejays have won six.

On March 2, they beat Marquette 89–75. Scheierman scored 26 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in their win over No. 5 Marquette on Saturday. Marquette was missing star guard Tyler Kolek (oblique) and Oso Ighodaro (illness), but Scheierman made 12 of 12 three-point shots and was dominate.

That gave the Bluejays a 13-6 record in the Big East, tying them with the Golden Eagles for second place. UConn is 17-2, and no other team can catch them. The Bluejays are playing for at least a share of second place and the second seed in the Big East Tournament.

Adjusted Offensive Efficiency puts Creighton in 11th place, and Adjusted Defensive Efficiency puts them in 24th place. Scheierman leads one of the best shooting teams in the country with 18.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game while shooting 45.2% and 37.7% from beyond the line.

Alexander leads the team with 17.6 points per game, 45.8% shooting, and 5 assists per game, and 7-foot-1 Ryan Kalkbrenner adds 17.2 points, 3.0 blocks, and 7.3 rebounds.

But this is a good but not great defensive team, even though they have a 7-foot big to protect the paint. They let people score 69.5 points and hit 41.9% (32% 3pts). They average 81.2 points per game and hit 49.1% (15th) from the field, 36.5% from beyond the arc, and 77.6% from the free throw line.

Villanova Wildcats Betting Prediction

Second, we have the Villanova vs Creighton Betting prediction for the Wildcats.

This time of the season, Villanova almost always makes the NCAA Tournament, but they’ve put themselves in a tough spot now. They are in fifth place, tied with Providence and St. John’s, with a record of 10-9 in the Big East and 17-13 overall.

KenPom ranks them higher than 29th overall, and their Adjusted Defensive Efficiency score puts them 13th. Seton Hall beat them 66–56 on the road on March 6 in a game between bubble teams.

It was a crushing loss, even though Joe Lunardi has them in the Last Four and as the 11th seed. Probably wouldn’t be on that list after another loss.

Eric Dixon scores 16 points a game and grabs 6.2 boards for the Wildcats. He shoots 46.7% and makes 35.1% of his three-point shots. With 42.8% shooting and 36.9% 3pt, T.J. Bamba adds 10.4 points and 3.6 boards.

Villanova is just as good as anyone else at defense.

It takes 40.9% of their shots (38th) and 32.4% of their three-point shots to score 65.5 points per game. When it comes to scoring, they make the most free throws (81.7%) of any team in the country.

Every game, they score 71.2 points and hit 42.6% from the field, which is 287th best, and 34.1% from three-point range.

Villanova vs Creighton Betting Pick

Even though Creighton has had a better season, Nova really needs this game. This game is very important for them to make it into the NCAA Tournament.

The best frontcourt player in the Big East, Eric Dixon, will make the difference in this game. Plus, Villanova has great defense.

At home, they only let opponents make 39.2% of their shots, which is a great mark. That is very important when playing Creighton because they can shoot the ball well from anywhere.

What’s more, the Bluejays only hit 34.6% from beyond the arc when they’re on the road, which is about 2% less than when they’re at home.
