Creighton Bluejays and the DePaul Blue Demons will meet late Thursday night for some Big East action at the Wintrust Center in Chicago. Creighton won the first meeting 60-47 in Omaha last month.
The Bluejays are 4-1 this month, and they come into this one on the heels of a season sweep of Georgetown. Ryan Hawkins tied a season-high 30 points in the win in DC, while Alex O'Connell paced the team with 27 points in the home win over the Hoyas.
Creighton is 16-8 this season, with an 8-5 record in Big East play.
Greg McDermott's team is averaging 69.2 points per game on 45.3% shooting, while allowing 65.1 points per game. Ryan Hawkins leads the Jays in both scoring (13.5) and rebounding (7.4).
DePaul Blue Demons
The Blue Demons are 2-2 this month, and their two losses have come by a combined five points to Providence and Butler. David Jones has led the team in scoring over the past three games, and he recorded the school's first triple-double in the home win over Georgetown.
DePaul is 12-12 this season, with a 3-11 record in Big East play.
Tony Stubblefield's team is averaging 72.9 points per game on 43.4% shooting, while allowing 73.1 points per game. Javon Freeman-Liberty returned to the lineup in the loss to Butler after a month-long absence, and he's postign strong averages of 20.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg, and 3.1.
Creighton is 2-3 ATS in their last 5 games.
CRE is 2-4 SU in their last 6 road games.
DePaul is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
DEP is 2-4 SU in their last 6 home games.
Creighton has the size to travel to Chicago and pull this off. Their pkaying their best basketball of the season, and their frontcourt has been dominant. There's a lot of value in their moneyline here, but I'm going to say spot them the points.
PICK: Creighton +3.5 (-110)
