The Creighton Bluejays and the Butler Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from the Hinkle Fieldhouse on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The Creighton Bluejays are currently a 7-point road favorite coming into this game with an attached ML price of -280. The over/under for this game is set at 140.5 points.


No new names have been added to the injury list for Creighton coming into this game, while Manny Bates is questionable for this game for Butler with a knee issue while D.J. Hughes is questionable with a shoulder issue and Myles Wilmoth is questionable with an arm injury.

Matchup history

Creighton won the last meeting between these two teams back on December 22nd, 2022, by a final score of 78-56, making it another victory for the home team, as the home team has won 10 straight meetings dating back to January 2019.


Creighton is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. Butler is 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.


I’m leaning towards Butler at home here. You can call into question the strength of Butler’s wins in conference play, beating the bottom teams like Villanova, Depaul and Georgetown, but Creighton hasn’t been able to cover the spread for much of anything lately and they haven’t been great on the road either. I think in a matchup dominated by the home team, I have to take a shot at Butler and the points here.
