Big East play continues as the Providence Friars head to Nebraska to take on the Creighton Bluejays.
Providence has looked better recently, winning three of the last five games, including a six-point win over Butler University. The team will have a tough matchup against 23rd ranked Creighton and the defense will need to be on point.
Providence gives up just 66.2 points per game, putting the team 49th in the nation in that category. The Friars have had a solid defense all season, holding even the top teams in the conference to under their averages.
Offensively, the team hasn’t been nearly as good as the defense. The team scores just 70 points per game, 261st in the nation. Forward Rodney Bullock has been the team’s best player, scoring 16.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He also shooting 43.9% from the field.
Emmitt Holt has also been an important player for the Friars. He puts up 12.1 points per game along with 5.5 rebounds. Holt shoots about 51.6% from the field.
The Creighton Bluejays are a wonderful offensive team, scoring 84.9 points per game. The team has the ability to overwhelm opposing defenses and it’ll look to do so against Providence.
Creighton’s offense is led by junior guard Marcus Foster, who averages 18.6 points per game. He shoots an efficient 48.9% from the field and 34% from behind the arc.
Senior Maurice Watson Jr. has also been a good scorer for the team. He averages 12.9 points and 8.5 assists per game, while shooting 50.8% from the field and 46.9% from the perimeter.
Sophomore Khyri Thomas averages 11.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 51.1% from the field.
With scorers like these guys, this Creighton team has the ability to put up 80 or 90 every night. In fact, the Bluejays have put up 80 or more in six of the last eight games, including more than 90 in two of them.

Free Providence Friars vs. Creighton Bluejays NCAAB Prediction:
Creighton has been a very good team all year, beating Big East rival Butler twice. However, the Bluejays need to keep their foot on the gas, as the team has slipped up a couple of times recently, losing to Xavier and Seton Hall. Nevertheless, Creighton gets the W in this one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Providence ATS
