On Friday night March 16th, our next stop in the South Regan is in Charlotte for a 6:50 local time start with No.8 Creighton doing battle No.9 Kansas State. Conference pride will also be on the line.
That is right it’s the Big East vs. the Big 12. These kinds of matchups will determine just how strong each conference really is when it matters most and could influence college basketball picks later in the tournament.
The college basketball odds opened with Creighton at -2 and at last look the Bluejays had flown to -1.5 against K-State, with a total of 144.5. Does either team really have an edge or are oddsmakers right and this is a nail-biter?
Despite losing a couple of very talented players last season, coach Greg McDermott saw his Creighton team (21-11, 14-16 ATS) get off to a spectacular start at 14-3. McDermott understands offense and again had one of the more prolific scoring teams in the country at 84.3 points a game. Based on pace of play, the Bluejays were ninth in the country and are always looking to advance the ball off a rebound, a made basket by the other team or after forcing a turnover.
