The BYU Cougars will be taking on the Creighton Blue Jays on Saturday, December 11th.
The tip-off is set for 12:00 ET from Sanford Pentagon.
The Cougars have remained a 5.5 point favorite throughout. The total has gone from 140 to 139.5.
BYU has had a very good year so far. I have been impressed with the way they have played and I want to see more.
The Cougars beat the Utah State Aggies on Wednesday by a score of 82-71. They will be in for a much bigger challenge when they face the Blue Jays.
This team has mostly faced cupcake teams, but they have knocked off some solid opponents as well. This game against Creighton will be a good test for these guys.
A good mix of people stepped up in the win over the Aggies. Alex Barcello was the leading scorer with 17 points and 4 assists. Trevin Knell had 13 points and 4 boards as well.
Creighton Blue Jays
Even though they are not a ranked team, Creighton has gotten off to a good start this year. I think they can be a dangerous team as the year goes on.
The Blue Jays come into this game with a record of 7-2. They have mostly played weaker competition, so facing the number 24 team in the nation will be a big challenge for them. I do think they are up for it, though.
This squad played last Saturday, where they lost to the Iowa State Cyclones by a score of 64-58. They could have won this game, but they just did not execute well enough to get it done.
When you score under 60 points, it is hard to win games in college basketball. With that said, I was impressed with the way the defense played against the Cyclones.

Going into the year, this was not a matchup that I had circled, but now that it is here, I am interested in it.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Creighton ATS
I have been very impressed with what I have seen from BYU this year. With that said, I do not think things will come as easy for them when they have to take on a good Creighton team on the road.
I can see this being very competitive because you have got two good teams going at it and to me, neither team is much better than the other.
The Blue Jays being a dog does not shock me here, but the 5.5 sort of did. With that, I was happy to see that they are getting points here because I feel like they can certainly keep it within that number and maybe win the game outright.
Give me Creighton at +5.5 here.
