Creighton is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games. The under is 20-8-1 in Creighton’s last 29 games. DePaul is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 12-4 in DePaul’s last 16 home games. The home team is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

DePaul has the second worse conference record in the Big East, but hasn’t played too bad in their last five games. In those five games, DePaul has two wins and three losses by a combined 12 points. Creighton has had more success this season and has also played well in their last few games. I like DePaul at home here in what should be an entertaining matchup.
