UConn at Creighton odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Creighton 70, UConn 68

Money line

UConn gets a long road trip in a second straight away game after three in a row at home. The Huskies may be due a bit of 3-point regression on the road, and CU’s field-goal defense inside the arc is elite.

TAKE CREIGHTON (+170).

Against the spread

The Bluejays lost 72-51 on Saturday and the last 14 times Creighton has lost by 20-plus, the following game has been an ATS win 12 times.

This is the type of late-season road game ripe for an upset.

BACK THE BLUEJAYS +4.5 (-110).

Over/Under

Creighton has been a solid Over play of late (and the Over has hit in four of its last six games). The Over is 18-10 across UConn’s 28 games.

BACK THE OVER 135.5 (-110).
