Best Bet for this Game

The Golden Eagles have a record of 4-1-1 versus rated teams so far this season, while the Blue Jays have a record of 1-3 against ranked teams through this season. Both Creighton and Marquette have a spread of 8–10, with Creighton having a lower spread of 12–5. Additionally, when betting against Marquette, they have a record of 4-1-1.

I believe that the Golden Eagles will prevail even though they are a six-point underdog on Saturday. A hungry Providence team was their opponent in their most recent game, and they made a statement by defeating the Friars by a score of 50–26 in the first half of the game.

Even though Marquette never fell behind, the team’s shooting percentage was disappointing overall (56.9 percent), particularly from beyond the arc (53.8 percent, 14 for 26). It is currently unknown whether or not Tyler Kolek will be able to play on Saturday, but I believe that the away team will keep the score close.

There is a chance that Creighton will win this game, but it will not be by a margin of four points. The Blue Jays have a head-to-head record of 5-5, while the Golden Eagles have a record of 8-2 in their previous ten games.

However, the Blue Jays were unable to cover the spread and ended up losing the first game by a score of 3.5 points. This was due to the fact that they committed an excessive number of turnovers and only attempted six free throws. Additionally, they suffered a loss of thirty to twenty in the paint. It would have been a loss for the Golden Eagles by more than ten points if they had made more shots.

Marquette will likely cover this game since they will make a greater number of shots (48.4% field goal percentage) and steal a sufficient number of balls (9.0 thefts per game).
