Creighton Bluejays vs. UConn Huskies: Latest Form

Overall, this season, Creighton has a 19-7 record. At home, they are 11-2 and on the road, 7-4. In the Big East Conference, they are 10-5.

The Bluejays are on a three-match winning streak. This includes a 94-72 home-court win over Georgetown and wins on the road over Xavier (78-71) and Butler (79-57). The Butler victory was last weekend.

The UConn Huskies are 14-1 in the Big East Conference. Overall, in the 2023/24 season, they are an impressive 24-2. At home, their record is 14-0, and on the road, 6-2.

The Huskies are on an incredible 14-match winning streak. Their most recent win was an impressive 81-53 demolition of Marquette at the XL Center on Saturday. The match was over at the halfway point, as the Huskies already had a 16-point lead at the break (42-26).

Creighton Bluejays vs. UConn Huskies Betting Picks

In the head-to-head between these two, it’s surprisingly the Bluejays with the upper hand (6-2). But in their most recent encounter, the Huskies came out on top 62-48 at the Gampel Pavilion.

If the match in Connecticut is going to be used as a marker for this game, then the one thing to take from it was the lack of 3-points scored. Both sides averaged under 30%, with UConn at 26.3 and Creighton at 23.1. It wasn’t a great match for the neutrals.

This promises to be a better encounter. UConn has never won here in three, and will they ever turn up in better shape to record their first win over the Bluejays on their home court?

We do have a slight worry about UConn in this match. This won’t be easy. But we have to back them to win. And with the handicap only at -2.5, we are going with the Huskies to win and cover for our betting pick.
