Creighton vs UConn Points Odds
Creighton’s offense is led by a pair of Seniors with forward Baylor Scheierman averaging 18.0 points per game, followed by center Ryan Kalkbrenner with 15.9 points per game. Scheierman is top of the scoring odds for the Bluejays, but it is Kalkbrenner that has featured as the team’s top scorer in the past three encounters with at least 18 points in each game. Don’t count out junior guard Trey Alexander, averaging 16.3 points per game, who put up 25 points against Georgetown to start the current winning streak.
UConn’s offense ranks top-15 in the nation in field goal percentage, scoring margin, and assists per game. Cam Spencer leads the team in scoring with 15.8 points per game and has shared being the team’s top scorer during the recent stretch with Alex Karaban (15.4 ppg) and Samson Johnson (6.3 ppg).
Creighton vs UConn Assists Odds
Trey Alexander leads Creighton with 4.5 assists per game but Baylor Scheierman (3.9 apg) and Steven Ashworth (3.5 apg) are next on the list. In the recent run, the top assist men have been Scheirman and Ryan Kalkbrenner with at least 9 assists coming from either player in the four games played this year.
Senior guard Tristen Newton has a strong hold over the assists category for UConn with 6.1 per game. Stephon Castle (3.8 apg) and Cam Spencer (3.3 apg) are the next best contributors. Spencer has led the way with 6 and 7 assists in the previous two games while Castle and Karaban have also had big nights in assists. This may be a tough choice to make, but the Huskies have plenty of good options.
Creighton vs UConn Rebounds Odds
Trey Alexander and Steven Ashworth have led the way in rebounds for Creighton during the current winning run. Baylor Scheierman is the team leader in the category with an average of 8.3 per game. Going back to the start of December, the worst night for Scheierman has been six rebounds, so the current line doesn’t look like a big stretch.
Tristen Newton also leads UConn in rebounds with 6.5 per game and has lived up to it in recent games, leading the category in the past three encounters. Donovan Clingan (6.3 rpg) and Alex Karaban (5.8 rpg) are next in the average but Clingan is out with a foot injury. Stephon Castle has picked up production lately with as many as 9 recently against Butler earlier this month.
Creighton vs UConn Analysis and Prediction
Creighton may be on a winning run but is still working its way back from a tough December where they lost three. The school’s previous trip to a top 10 side was at Marquette on Dec. 30, which the Bluejays lost by five. The team recently had a close call with St. John’s at home.
UConn meanwhile has only had two losses during the entire season. They have had some good margins of victory and should be able to get a good gap at home. The Huskies look like a better bet to cover even at 6.5 on some sites.
Pick: UConn -6 (-110 at time of publishing), Under 144.5 (-110 at time of publishing)
