The Villanova Wildcats will be on the road to take on the Creighton Bluejays on Friday, December 17th.
The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from CHI Health Center.
As of now, I am seeing the Wildcats as a 6.5 point favorite in every place I have checked. The total has shifted from 129.5 to 130.5.
Overall, Villanova has started off the year well. I have liked what I have out of them so far in the early going.
The Wildcats last played on Sunday, where they lost to the Baylor Bears by a score of 57-36. I get that their opponent is now the number team in the country, but you have to put forth a stronger effort than that.
One thing about this program is they are not playing all easy schools. Although it is still very early, they have already played some very legitimate opponents. That will continue to be the case when they begin to play teams such as Creighton and others in the Big East.
The loss to Baylor does surprise me to some degree. I just find it very hard that in modern college basketball a team scores only 36 points. You would think anybody would be able to put up more points than that, frankly.
Even though they are not a ranked team, Creighton is very solid. I think they will have a successful season when all is said and done.
The Bluejays come into this game with a record of 8-3. It will be very hard to keep up that pace when their schedule gets much more challenging, but I would not rule it out. I do feel they can compete with any team in a very competitive Big East.
This team lost a very close one to the Arizona State Sun Devils on Tuesday by a score of 58-57. It is not a knock on their opponent, but those are the types of losses that make you scratch your head. It will only get tougher when they face one of the best teams in America on Friday.
Tuesday was a day they should not have lost. After being up 32-26 after the first half, they let the Sun Devils storm back in the 2nd and get a win. When you have a lead against a team you are better than, you better hold it.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. Creighton Bluejays NCAAB Summary:
To me, this is what Big East basketball is all about. I feel like this can be a good ball game to watch.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Creighton ATS
Both of these teams have to flush bad losses, but especially Villanova. After seeing them play against Baylor, I am not sure how much confidence I have in them to go on the road and play a good ball game.
Creighton has certainly not enjoyed playing Villanova as of late because wins have been very hard to come by. I am not saying the Bluejays win this thing, but I do feel they will be engaged and can make it competitive.
For me, the 6.5 is a little too high to lay with the Wildcats. They should be able to take care of business, but I could see this game coming down to the final minutes.
Give me Creighton getting the 6.5 points at home here.
