Gonzaga Vs. Creighton – NCAA College Basketball Picks | Betting Odds
The best team in the nation, at least for now, the Gonzaga Bulldogs will put their undefeated season on the line on Saturday afternoon, when they visit the underrated Creighton Blue Jays at the CHI Health Center Omaha, in Omaha, Nebraska. Gonzaga has been the favorite in six of their seven games played this season. The only time they were dogs was in the well-publicized showdown against Duke last week. Creighton, on the other hand, has been a favorite also in six of the seven times they have jumped on the court.
Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. Creighton Blue Jays Predictions
It’s been a fun early ride for Gonzaga. They are working hard to make us believers. We know the Bulldogs have always been the bridesmaid and never the bride. But their win against Duke last week made us notice. Yes, it’s early. But after the Blue Devils destroyed Kentucky in the first game of the season, we were all ready to overreact. To many said Duke was going undefeated. It didn’t last long, and it was thanks to Gonzaga and their discipline way to play basketball.
The Bulldogs are talented, but they don’t have the flashy recruits other schools do. That’s why we are not willing to make them the tournament favorites when March Madness hits the calendar. The oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag have them at +800 to win it all. They are tied with Kansas as the team with the second-best odds, right behind Duke. Creighton could be a trap game for Gonzaga. The Blue Jays are 7-1, and no one is talking about them. I get that the Big East has lost some value over the past few years, but they still can put on a fight. Especially when playing at home against a top-ranked team.
The Blue Jays took down Ohio State and Clemson this season. The Tigers were a ranked team when they played Creighton, but the Blue Jays managed to cover the spread by winning outright. Since starting 0-3 against the spread this season, Creighton has been money lately. They have covered the spread in their last four outings. The feeling I get when watching Creighton play is, they can stay within reach against any team in College Basketball. That makes them a dangerous squad because they are always in it. What makes Gonzaga great is they are a team that dominates the glass against any opponent. They have this nature to hustle any loose ball and that always give them an extra possession.
Gonzaga is the better team in my book. They beat Creighton by 17 points last season. But this time the Zags have to go on the road. That should even things out for the Blue Jays. Take the Bulldogs to win this meeting by seven points. What’s the play? Bulldogs.
