Creighton faces Butler on Wednesday, January 26th, 2022 at Hinkle Fieldhouse for a college basketball Big East matchup.
Creighton is coming off a 60-47 win over DePaul in its last game at home on January 22nd. Creighton's defense was stellar in its second straight win, holding a strong DePaul offense to under 50 points. Creighton is now 12-5 overall this season and 4-2 in Big East play, putting the Bluejays in a two-way tie for 4th place. Creighton is 9-8-0 against the spread this season and will play in its first road game in over 10 days. Creighton's leading scorer so far this season has been F Ryan Hawkins, who has scored 13.2 points per game and has earned 7.5 rebounds per game as well. G Ryan Nembhard leads the team in assists per game with 4.4. Creighton as a team has scored 70.9 points per game and has shot the ball at a 46.8% clip from the field. Creighton has also allowed 65.5 points per game to its opponents as well.
Butler is coming off a 69-62 loss to Providence in its last game on the road on January 23rd. Butler has now lost four straight games as things have not looked good for the Bulldogs in Big East play. Butler is now under .500 at 9-10 overall this season and 2-6 in Big East, which puts the team in third-to-last in the conference standings. Butler has been one of the worst cover teams in the Big East as well, owning a 6-13-0 against the spread record. Butler's leading scorer so far this season has been G Chuck Harris, who has scored 10.8 points per game for the Bulldogs. F Bryce Golden leads the team in rebounds per game and G Aaron Thompson leads the team in assists per game with 4.0. Butler as a team has scored 62.1 points per game and has shot the ball at a 41.6% clip from the field. Butler has also allowed 65.1 points per game to its opponents.
Creighton is a 4.5-point favorite and the total is set at 126.5. Despite being miserable against the spread, the books have not really adjusted to Butler's recent poor play. This line is still a few points short in my opinion, giving us some value on Creighton as the road team. I think Creighton is playing much better basketball and should although this is a road conference game, I think the Bluejays take this one and earn the cover as well.
