Why Bet on the Creighton Bluejays?
Creighton started off sluggishly, barely escaping UCSB with an unexpected one-point win. The Bluejays started to build more confidence after the second-round win against Ohio, using it as a stepping stone to come in hot facing the Bulldogs. If they do deliver from the three-point line, the team can hit as much as 9 to 10 per game. They can go toe to toe with the best shooters of Gonzaga.
To keep things interesting, Creighton developed a style of play and a combination of players that offer diversity. This will be put to the test once the NCAAB: Creighton vs. Gonzaga kicks off. We can look forward to Marcus Zegarowski paving the way for the Bluejays as he currently leads the scoring with 15.6 points per game.
Why Bet on the Gonzaga Bulldogs?
Gonzaga is a relentless team that will punish any mistakes. Despite being an okay free-throw shooting team, they still manage to get things done. The Bulldogs’ last game saw an unstoppable Drew Timme who scored 30 points. Expect to see him deliver buckets alongside Corey Kispert, who averages an imposing 19.3 points per game. Keeping the defensive side of the team on point is Jalen Suggs, who is tasked to lock down Zegarowski and force turnovers.
What makes Gonzaga a great team is that it can create the best possible shots. The quality of open looks they produce keeps their level of efficiency higher, shooting north of 50 percent from the field. More than that, the Bulldogs are confident on the line, shooting almost 90 percent since the start of the tournament.

Creighton vs. Gonzaga Expert Betting Predictions
Everyone knows that once Gonzaga flips the switch, it can overrun any team out there. However, if Creighton gets there first and starts hitting threes, it will put the Bulldogs in unfamiliar territory.

We anticipate Creighton to cover the spread, while Gonzaga, being the favorites, might be the ideal option for outright bets. Nonetheless, a surprise win by the Bluejays is not off the table here, so stay tuned and see how everything unfolds this weekend.
