8:30PM EST: Creighton -28.5 (3 Units)
This is just a matter of when Creighton pulls off the trigger but they have the depth to keep pouring it on. They've given 8 players meaningful minutes while Lawson has seen 10 MPG and freshman Fotzler has seen 7.3. After last year that saw Creighton practically run a 6 man rotation, they made it a point to play deeper.
Texas Southern has already been blownout a couple times. They lost to New Mexico 55-92 and Virginia 33-62. Their third and final loss was a 52-63 defeat to Arizona State. They covered getting 14.5. Creighton is better than everyone of those teams and the time of this game matters.
If this was some normal weekday game it could be overlooked and provide a dull stadium enviornment but it's a Saturday night at 8:30 local time. The College kids will be coming and fired up.
The Bluejays are an offensive juggernaut, same as last year. So far this season they've scored 105, 89, and 92 points. It's hard to see them failing to get close to those numbers again. It's not like their first 2 blowout wins weren't in hand early, they just kept pouring it on. They beat Florida A&M by 51 and North Dakota State by 39. Their bench is averaging 30.3 points per game early this year and a large reason for the Creighton success.
Creighton is shooitng 56.3% from the field (5th best) and 42.1% from 3 (15th). There's nobody on Texas Southern that can match-up against Creighton Center Ryan Kalkbrenner either. They're laying 28.5 points for a reason. Creighton just has the depth to keep tis astronomical number covered.
