Coming off of a loss to the St. John's Red Storm, the Seton Hall Pirates have really hit the skids since inter-conference play began and now the Pirates are in a fight to keep their post season hopes alive. In their way tonight, is the 2nd best team in the Big East Conference in the Creighton Blue Jays. Creighton is a mere 1 point road favorite and the odds appear quite low here while the value is high in backing Creighton.

  #20 Creighton vs Seton Hall

 

A Good Spot For Creighton

It certainly appear that way as these two teams have met once already this season with the Blue Jays coming out on top with an 89-75 victory. Creighton also possesses quality victories over Wisconsin, Xavier, and Butler to their credit. This isn't a team looking to survive. This is a team looking to finish out the regular season in hopes of a Big East Conference Championship Title and a favorable seeding at the Big Dance.

Where Seton Hall is concerned, inter-conference play has dictated the direction of their season and they have a 10th loss staring them in the face. This is their biggest game of the season for SHU as a win over Creighton would carry a lot of weight in deciding if they make the Big Dance. As of now, it doesn't seem likely.

Creighton is a team that can light the scoreboard up as they're averaging 85 points per game while shooting 52.4% from the field and 41% from 3 point territory.

Khyri Thomas

Possibly the most important player on the Blue Jays squad has been point guard Khyri Thomas. Thomas has taken over for Maurice Watson Jr, who is out for the season due to injury and Thomas has filled in admirably.

In his last 4 games, Thomas is averaging 15 points,s 5.5 rebound and 5 assists per game on 23 of 37 shooting from the field.. Thomas also possesses a 4 to 1 turnover to assist ratio and look for him to play well here as Seton Hall is reeling after a devastating loss.

In the end, the betting odd are too appealing to pass up as Creighton is the far superior squad and the team to side with.
