Creighton battles Alabama in the 8-9 game in the Midwest Regional Friday night but Madness bettors do not remember Creighton fondly.
The Jays has been one-and-done the past four Madnesses and are 0-4 ATS in those first-round losses. However, any interesting trend in 8 vs 9 matchups has the underdogs rolling to a 14-4 ATS in the past 18 games between these middle seeds.
The Blue Jays, who earned their way into the tournament by winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, are getting a point and a half from the Tide, who received an at-large bid after taking fifth place in the SEC.
The total has been bet up to 110 from 108 at BetOnline.
This game is being played at a neutral-site court (Greensboro Coliseum).
