Why Bet on the Creighton Bluejays?
The Creighton Bluejays made a statement in the Big East. However, a minor hiccup cost them to lose their last game against Xavier, 77-69. The eight-point loss intensifies Creighton even more. If they can produce a win, they can claim the top spot in the conference, pushing Villanova back to the second spot.
To reignite the momentum, they have to take down a feisty Villanova team on the road. This might look like a daunting task for the Nebraskan team, but they might have a few tricks up their sleeve to even out the NCAAB odds.
With Marcus Zegarowski threatening to create a gap between his team and Villanova, we can anticipate a great game ahead of us. The Junior currently averages 15 points and 4.6 assists per game, making him a key player in this clash.
Why Bet on the Villanova Bulldogs?
Despite the numbers you see on the NCAAB table, Villanova struggles to maintain the pace. Sitting first on the Big East table and 10th overall, the team is coming off a 12-point loss against Butler, who is 9th in the Big East. They also took a big hit after losing three of their last seven conferences game.
Nevertheless, no one can deny the talent that makes up the Wildcats. Backed by some of the top scorers in the league, they are expected to deliver in the game as well as March Madness.
More than that, if their starters can get some points, they should have an easier time winning at home.

Creighton vs. Villanova Expert Betting Prediction
The Creighton Bluejays are a definite threat this season thanks to starters putting up double-digit scores. From an offense perspective, we expect them to produce from start to finish.
On the other hand, Villanova must move forward from their previous losses and finish strong coming into March Madness. The slight advantage goes for Villanova, but Creighton poses as a threat and can pull off a cheeky win and cover the spread at the very least.
