Creighton vs Oregon ATS Pick for College Hoops R32

The Oregon Ducks and Creighton Bluejays will meet in the Round of 32 on Saturday for a chance to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Both teams performed very well in the opening round to continue their strong finish to the season. They each earned double-digit wins in the first round and will now look to extend that past the first weekend. However, college basketball odds favor the third-seeded Bluejays, who should be able to cover the spread to advance.

ATS Pick: Creighton -5

Both teams opened the tournament hot in the first round against their respective opponents, but that run is likely to come to an end for Oregon when it meets Creighton on Saturday.

The Bluejays have been one of the hottest shooting teams in the country this season, knocking it down from the field at a 48.8% clip for 15th nationally. That hasn’t slowed down. Creighton has averaged 78.6 points on 49.6% shooting in its last five games while it is coming off a 58.8% mark shooting from beyond the arc in the first round.

That high scoring should continue against Oregon, which has had a tough time defensively, allowing opponents to shoot it at a 45.3% clip this season. The Ducks should also have a tougher time keeping up on the offensive end, as their 87 points on Thursday marked their highest total in six games. Oregon averaged 70.2 points in its previous five games while Creighton has kept teams to 68.8 points a game in its last five.

With the Bluejays also having one of the best defenders in center Ryan Kalkbrenner along with their efficient offense, they should be able to hold the Ducks off.

 

 

Player Prop Pick: Baylor Scheierman Over 9.5 Rebounds (-109)

Scheierman leads the Bluejays in rebounds with 9.1 this season, and he has stepped it up even more recently. Scheierman has been a key piece for Creighton’s postseason success, and in four of his last five games, he has had double-digit rebounds. He is coming off a 13-rebound performance in the first round.

Scheierman has had at least 10 rebounds in 10 of his last 13 games. On one of the top rebounding teams in the nation, ranking just outside the top 50 with 37.9 boards a game, he should have another double-digit performance against Oregon.
