    Sportsbook Odds Analysis

    The Bulldogs opened as 13-point favorites in this Sweet 16 matchup and have been the early betting choice, bumping the line up slightly to Gonzaga -13.5. The total opened at 157.5 points but has also moved up a half-point to 158 points. Gonzaga is 2-0 SU and ATS in its last two games against Creighton.

    Creighton News & Notes

    Marcus Zegarowski scored 20 points to help the Bluejays earn a 72-58 win over the Ohio Bobcats in the Round of 32. With the win, Creighton punched its ticket to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 47 years.

    The Bluejays jumped out to a 39-24 lead in the first half en route to an easy victory that was a welcome change of pace after a nail-biting 63-62 win over the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos in the Round of 64 and an ugly 73-48 loss against the Georgetown Hoyas in the Big East Tournament.

    Creighton will be in a rare position as the underdog after being favored in all but three of its games during the regular season. The Bluejays went 1-2 SU and 2-1 ATS in their three games as an underdog, winning one and losing one against the Villanova Wildcats and losing but covering the spread against the Kansas Jayhawks.

    Gonzaga News & Notes

    The Bulldogs have carried the dominance of their regular season into the NCAA Tournament, smashing the Norfolk State Spartans 98-55 as 33-point favorites and crushing the Oklahoma Sooners 87-71 as 15.5-point favorites.

    Gonzaga ranks second in the nation in scoring, averaging 92.1 points per game, and has allowed 68.7 points per game for a staggering average margin of victory of 23.4 points. The team’s last 25 wins have all come by 10 points or more.

    With so many offensive weapons in Corey Kispert (19.2 points per game), Drew Timme (18.8 points per game), Jalen Suggs (14.1 points per game) and Joel Ayayi (11.9 points per game), the Bulldogs have been just too deep to contain all season long. Gonzaga is 6-3 ATS over its last nine games, including a 2-0 ATS record so far in the NCAA Tournament.

    Betting Pick: Gonzaga -13.5

    The Bulldogs are playing at a completely different level than the rest of the nation right now. It will be interesting to see how they deal with adversity when it eventually comes, but it probably won’t come against this Creighton offense that simply doesn’t have the firepower to keep up.
