The underdog is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in this matchup. The Bluejays are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games. The Xavier Musketeers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games and are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. However, this feels like too many points for a Creighton Bluejays team that isn’t half bad. I see Xavier getting the win but Creighton keeping it close.
