The Creighton Bluejays and Villanova Wildcats face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at The Pavillion. 

The Creighton Bluejays come into this game with a 17-6 record overall and they have won four of their last five games. In the last game against Xavier, the defense struggled giving up 77 points, and that led to a defeat. Creighton on the season is averaging 78.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.8 points per game. Creighton is shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line. Marcus Zegarowski has been the best player for Creighton averaging 14.9 points while shooting 43 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Villanova Wildcats who sit with a 15-4 record overall but they are coming off a loss in their last game against Butler. The offense could only manage 61 points and that led to a 12 point defeat. Villanova on the season is averaging 77.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 67.9 points per game. Villanova is shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from behind the three point line.

Creighton is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games. The under is 20-7-1 in Creighton’s last 28 road games. The over is 9-4 in Villanova’s last 13 games overall. 

Creighton struggled in the last game but this is a strong bounce-back spot for them. Look for Creighton to find offensive success and that will lead to the Wildcats coming away with a win and a cover of the spread. In terms of the total, I expect the pace of this game is going to be fast and that will lead to this game going well over the total. These are two plays that are both strong.
