The Creighton Bluejays will be on the road to take on the Villanova Wildcats on Wednesday, January 5th.
The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from Finneran Pavilion.
Nova started off as an 11.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 10.5. The total has gone from 131 to 128.5.
Creighton has played well this year. For the most part, I have liked what I have seen out of this team.
The Bluejays last played on January 1st, where they beat the Marquette Golden Eagles by a score of 75-69. That was an impressive win on the road for this team. They will look to do more of the same when they face off with the Wildcats on Wednesday.
A lot of times, teams will load up on cupcake games to start the year, but that has not been the case for this squad. They have already faced some solid competition and that will only continue as they play teams within the Big East.
Ryan Kalkbrenner was the leading scorer for them in their last game with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Ryan Hawkins also contributed 18 points and 4 assists to the mix.
Villanova has been solid this year, but if you asked them, they would tell you they could be playing better than they have been.
The Wildcats have a record of 9-4 and they are ranked #19 in the nation. They still have a lot of work to do if they wish to be considered one of the better programs in the land.
This crew beat the Seton Hall Pirates on Saturday by a score of 73-67. That was an impressive win for them on the road over a team that is very solid.
In their last game, the leading scorer was Collin Gillespie, who had 21 points and 4 rebounds. Also, Brandon Slater had 17 points and 7 boards.

This is a game that Villanova should be able to take care of business in, but it will be no easy task.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Creighton ATS
When these teams met back in December, the Bluejays beat the Wildcats pretty bad. If you are Villanova, that cannot happen for a second time, especially on your home floor.
I would expect Nova to make some adjustments, but they are going to have their hands full in this tilt. Creighton is a solid team and they can present them with a lot of issues if they are on their game.
For me, the 10.5 is too high to lay with Villanova. It would not shock me if they won the game, but I can see Creighton giving them everything they have and making it a close game.
I am taking the Bluejays at +10.5 in this one.
