The Creighton Bluejays are coming off an impressive win against a good Texas Tech team, and they will be riding high with confidence against an Oral Roberts team that has struggled on the defensive side of the court. The backcourt has been explosive for Creighton this season as sophomore guard Marcus Zegarowski is averaging 18.4 PPG while junior guard Ty-Shon Alexander is contributing 16.1 PPG, and I don’t think Oral Roberts has enough talent to keep both of them in check. The Bluejays have been great from behind the three-point line this season, and if they are hitting their shots on their home court, it could be a long night for the Golden Eagles. Final Score Prediction, Creighton Bluejays win and cover ATS 76-61.
