St. John’s Vs. Creighton Prediction

I’m on the Bluejays here. I just don’t see St. John’s defense holding up here against a Creighton team that likes to bomb away from behind the arc. I think this game could turn into a high-scoring track meet but I think that only benefits Creighton more. Give me the Bluejays by double-digits.
