In the Georgia Game Tuesday, Clemson won it 64-49. Leading the way for the Tigers in that one was Marquise Reed, with 24 points and nine rebounds. Elijah Thomas managed a double-double on 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Over on the Creighton side, they’re 4-1 this season. The Bluejays beat Western Illinois and East Tennessee State before falling to Ohio State, then got back on track with wins over Boise State and Georgia State.
In the Panthers game, Creighton’s lead scorer was Mitchell Ballock with 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and Damien Jefferson also had a nice line on 20 points and six rebounds of his own.
The Bluejays are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games following a straight-up win and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 overall. Creighton is 5-16 ATS in their last 21 following an ATS win and the under is 5-2 in their last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last four following an ATS loss and 7-1 ATS in their last eight neutral-site games. Clemson is 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games.
Clemson got some big performances from their top-tier guys in the Georgia game, which explains why they were in control for most of the outing. Their only win that’s really been close is Akron (three points).
As for Creighton, they’ve been putting up some pretty nice scores aside from the Ohio State game, with 69. I expect a similar outcome here so I’m probably going Clemson.
