The over is 5-1 in Musketeers last 6 overall. The over is 4-0 in Bluejays last 4 overall. The underdog is 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Creighton Bluejays are probably the better team here, but this is an awful lot of points to pass up with an undefeated Xavier team that's not too shabby. Xavier has also beaten some pretty solid teams to earn its undefeated record and has topped 90 points in three of its last five games. This line isn't showing much respect to the Musketeers. I'll gladly take the free buckets with Xavier.
