Creighton vs St John’s Betting Prediction 

This game is going to be higher scoring. St John’s defense clearly has some holes and their defense is going to really struggle in this game, Creighton is averaging 81.3 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. St John’s offense isn’t going to be good enough to keep up, and it will be Creighton that will get the job done. Back Creighton against the spread.
