The Butler Bulldogs (19-8, 7-7 CONF) and the Creighton Blue Jays (21-6, 10-4 CONF) will meet on Sunday, February 23rd for a Big East matchup at the CHI Health Center Omaha in Omaha, NE. The game will be played at 4:00 PM eastern time. 

Butler is coming off a 74-72 road loss to Seton Hall in their last game. Butler has now dropped back-to-back games, and they have lost three of their last five games overall. Butler is ranked #21 in the country, so this is a huge game for them against a big-time rival. Creighton is coming off a 73-65 road win over Marquette in their last game. #15 Creighton is now on a four-game win streak, as they have been on a roll as of late. 

Butler has scored 68.8 points per game on 46.3 percent field goal shooting. Butler’s leading scorer is G Kamar Baldwin, who scores 16.3 points per game. The leading rebounder for Butler is F Bryce Nze, who earns 6.5 rebounds per game. Butler allows 62.1 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a +6.7 scoring differential so far this season.

Creighton scores 78.1 points per game on 47 percent field goal shooting this season. Creighton’s leading scorer is G Ty-Shon Alexander, who scores 16.9 points per game.

Creighton also earns 35.2 rebounds, 15.7 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 6.5 steals per game as a team. 

Butler is 13-12-2 against the spread this season and 2-7-1 against the spread in their last ten games. Butler is also 5-4 against the spread on the road so far this season. Creighton is 15-9-2 against the spread this season and 7-2-1 against the spread in their last ten games. Creighton is also 8-5-1 against the spread at home so far this season.

Creighton is hot, and when a team that scores 78.1 points per game is rolling, not much can stop them. Butler has dropped two straight, so I do not like them in this road spot. I will take Creighton and lay the 5.5 points.
