The Creighton Bluejays and Providence Friars face off on Saturday in a Big East college basketball showdown at the Dunkin Donuts Center. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was Providence that won 74-70.
Creighton comes into this game with a 19-8 record overall and they have gone 15-12 against the spread. Creighton is playing some really good basketball winning six games in a row including the last game against St. John’s. The offense was strong, scoring 81 points, and that was enough. Creighton is averaging 70.2 points while their defense is giving up 66.7 points per game. Ryan Hawkins has been the best player for Creighton scoring 14.4 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field. Ryan Nembhard has been a key guard for this team, but he broke his wrist and will be out of the rest of the season.
On the other side of this matchup is the Providence Friars who sit with a 23-3 record overall and they keep continuing to find ways to win games. In the last game against Xavier it took triple overtime to win 99-92. Providence is averaging 72.5 points while their defense is giving up 66.8 points per game. Center Nate Watson has been the top player for Providence averaging 14.1 points while shooting 57 percent from the field. Providence has four different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game.
Creighton is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games. Providence is 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games. The over is 4-0 in Providence’s last four games. The over is 4-1 in Creighton’s last five games. The under is 13-3 in Providence’s last 16 games against a team with a winning straight up record.
Providence has gotten really lucky at times, but I think they are going to finally see that luck run dry. Creighton’s offense was strong in the last game against St. John’s and they are going to find offensive success against the Providence defense. Back Creighton to win this game on the money line.
