The Creighton Bluejays will be on the road to take on the Xavier Musketeers on Saturday, January 15th.
The tip-off is set for 12:00 ET from Cintas Center.
The Musketeers started off as an 8.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 9.5. The total has gone from 145.5 to 142.5.
Creighton may not be the best team in the Big East, but I still think they are a very solid program. For the most part, I have been impressed with what I have seen out of this program.
The Bluejays last played on January 5th, where they got smoked by the Villanova Wildcats by a score of 75-41. It goes without saying, but they will have to much more sharp and focused when they square off with this conference foe.
Even though the Wildcats had their way with this crew in their last meeting, the Bluejays also had their way with them when they met earlier in the season. It really just depends on what version of this team shows up on any given day.
In their last game, I was very surprised by how few points they scored. Rarely do you see a team in college hoops score just over forty points.
This Xavier team has been an awful lot of fun to watch this season. Also, it helps that they are just a very good team in general and I only think they will be getting better.
The Musketeers have a record of 12-3 at the moment, but it is worth noting that they have lost to Villanova twice. Even with the impressive wins and losses mark, that one definitely has to bother them.
This squad actually just lost to Nova on Wednesday by a score of 64-60. They dug themselves an early hole and were never able to make up for it, even though they came close.
Overall, I thought the defense played pretty well in their last game, but the offense did not play up to their capability. When they are really clicking, they have the ability to score in bunches and that was not the case.

Free Creighton Bluejays vs. Xavier Musketeers NCAAB Summary:
This matchup between two Big East Rivals is definitely one that makes me want to tune in. I could seen it turning out to be a pretty good one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Creighton ATS
Creighton and Xavier are coming off of losses in which they did not play their best games. I would expect them to come out a bit more focused and it would not shock me if they got off to good starts on Saturday.
The Musketeers are the better team, but I do not feel this is a lock for them to cover. Although Creighton had a bad loss in their last game, they are talented and definitely capable of being competitive in this ball game.
In a conference game like this, the 9.5 points are just too high for me to lay. I can this being a closer game than some might think.
I am going with Creighton at +9.5 here.
