Why Creighton has the ability to cover
Creighton was able to get its season back on track with a resounding victory over Butler on Thursday. With a final score of 78-56, Creighton easily covered the 8-point spread in the game. As a result of the Bluejays’ 16-point victory over the Bulldogs in the second half of this game, they have a great deal of momentum heading into this confrontation. Baylor Scheierman contributed 14 points, eight rebounds, three steals, and three blocks, while star Ryan Kalkbrenner scored 19 points on 8 of 9 shooting and made all of his free throws.
Creighton’s offense has been one of the most productive in all of college basketball this year, and Kalkbrenner is one of five players averaging double figures for the Blue Jays. Following an 83-45 defeat at the hands of Northwestern last Saturday, DePaul is currently on the road for the fifth time in its last six games.
The Blue Demons have now lost three of their last four games. In the past few years, Creighton’s Blue Demons have had trouble competing with them, and in their last nine head-to-head matchups, the Blue Demons have only covered the spread once.
Why DePaul has the ability to cover
The Bluejays haven’t played well since November, but Creighton had a good game against Butler after a string of poor performances. They had a losing streak of six games in a row, with two of their most recent four defeats coming by a margin of ten or more points. Before their victory on Thursday, Creighton had also been on a losing streak against the spread for four games, so it is safe to say that the betting market has Creighton pegged as an overvalued team.
In conference play, DePaul has been undervalued, as evidenced by the fact that the team has covered the spread in five of its last seven games played against Big East opponents. The Blue Demons are led in scoring by senior forward Javan Johnson, who averages 16.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.
Former Oklahoma guard Umoja Gibson is contributing 14.8 points and 5.3 assists per game for the Blue Demons. Eral Penn, a senior forward, completes the group of players averaging double figures in scoring with 11.3 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.
