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.
