The Creighton Bluejays and St. John’s Red Storm face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Carnesecca Arena. When these two teams faced off on January 19th it was Creighton that won 87-64. 

Alex O’Connell was the top player for Creighton scoring 28 points and seven rebounds. Julian Champagnie was the top player for St. John’s scoring 17 points and grabbing four rebounds.

On the other side of this matchup is the St. John’s Red Storm who sit with a 15-11 record overall and they have gone 14-12 against the spread. The Red Storm have been a bit inconsistent this season, but they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Butler it was one of their most impressive wins of the season putting up 91 points and giving up only 57 points. St. John’s is averaging 79.2 points while their defense is giving up 73.2 points per game. Julian Champagnie has been the best player for St. John’s averaging 19.2 points while shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 35 percent from behind the three point line. 

The Red Storm are 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall. Creighton is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games. The over is 5-1 in St. John’s last six home games against a team with a winning road record. 

St. John’s has found success covering spreads coming into this game, and the defense has been a big reason why. I expect St. John’s defense to find a way to slow down Creighton, and that is going to be the difference as the Red Storm get the job done. Back St. John’s against the spread.
