CONNECTICUT HUSKIES VS. CREIGHTON BLUEJAYS PREDICTIONS

The Huskies surge into Omaha with five consecutive victories since a 74-68 setback in Cincinnati against Xavier on Feb. 11. Despite the win streak, UConn is just 1-4-1 ATS across the past six outings. The 86-point effort was the most for Connecticut since it posted 96 points in a rout of Georgetown back on Jan. 25. The Huskies will be looking for revenge after a 59-55 loss against the Bluejays on Feb. 1, falling outright as a 10.5-point favorite. The 55 points was the second-lowest offensive production of the season.

The Bluejays were roughed up in Providence on Saturday, falling 72-51 to snap a six-game win streak and five-game cover streak. The 51 points was also the lowest offensive production since managing just 41 points in a blowout loss at Villanova on Jan. 5. Creighton hit just 31% (18-of-59) from the field, including an awful 19% (5-of-26) from downtown. The good news is that Creighton turned it over just seven times against the conference champ Friars.

CONNECTICUT HUSKIES VS. CREIGHTON BLUEJAYS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Huskies will head to Omaha hoping that the fifth time is a charm. Since UConn and Creighton started facing each other in Big East conference play Dec. 20, 2020, the Bluejays are a perfect 4-0 SU in four meetings, with the underdog cashing in three of the past four games. The UNDER has hit in each of the past two meetings, including Creighton's 59-55 win at UConn on Feb. 1 as 10.5-point underdogs.

UConn is favored in this one, but Creighton is gunning for its 20th victory of the season, and it has played very well at home this season. While the Bluejays are so-so on the road, Creighton is 10-3 SU at home, with UConn just 5-4 SU in nine true road games. Look for Creighton's mastery over UConn to continue, winning for a fifth consecutive meeting in this series.
