UConn Huskies vs. Creighton Bluejays Betting Preview

There is a massive college basketball game in the Big East Conference on Tuesday night as the UConn Huskies are set to visit the Creighton Bluejays. This game will not likely impact the winner of the conference, but it could impact seeding for each team in the NCAA Tournament. 

UConn is coming into this game with an overall record of 24-2 and they were just voted as the unanimous number 1 team in the country. The Huskies have rattled off 14 straight wins, and they have built up a massive lead in the Big East Conference. 

Creighton has won three games in a row, and they are trying to separate themselves from a massive logjam in the standings. The Bluejays are coming into this game with a record of 19-7, and they have moved up to number 15 in the polls.

UConn is a 2.5-point betting favorite on the road over Creighton on Tuesday night. 

Huskies Blow Teams Out

Most people would agree that the UConn Huskies are the best overall team in the country this season, and the numbers would support that. UConn is scoring 82 points per game on the year, while also allowing less than 64 points per game. 

Cam Spencer is leading the way with 15.2 points for the Huskies, but there are five other players scoring at least 10 points per game. This balance on offense makes UConn extremely difficult to defend, and any player can take over on a given night. 

UConn has incredible size and length and that makes it extremely hard on opponents to score on them. The Huskies will have to guard the arc in this game, but that’s something they have been known to do. 

Bluejays Need to Defend

Creighton is coming into this game scoring 81.2 points per game, and they have been one of the better offensive teams in the country. The Bluejays do a ton of damage from the perimeter, and they will need to shoot it well in this game. 

Baylor Scheierman is leading the team with 18.7 points per game, but there are other players that can lead the way on offense. Creighton likes to push the tempo most of the time, but slowing things down might be a better strategy. 

The Bluejays are allowing less than 70 points per game this season, but that defense will be tested in a major way in this game. 

Huskies Continue to Roll

UConn is going to be facing a great team on the road in this game, but they have proven that they can win anywhere so far this season. The Huskies just have so many weapons on offense, and it’s hard to see them all going cold at the same time. 

Creighton can make enough shots to keep this game close, but at some point they are going to struggle to get some stops. The Bluejays are also facing a massive size disadvantage, and that will hurt them in the second half. 

Bet on the UConn Huskies to win this game by a comfortable margin as they pick up their 15th win in a row.
