The DePaul Blue Demons and the Creighton Bluejays will meet up on the college basketball court Saturday.

DePaul is sitting at 15-13 on the season. Following a four-game losing streak last month, the Blue Demons have won their last pair of games versus St. John’s and Georgetown.

In the win over the Hoyas, DePaul’s Max Strus led the team on 30 points with nine rebounds and four assists. Paul Reed doubled up for the Blue Demons in that one as well with 19 points and 10 rebounds total.

Over on the Creighton side, they're 17-13 this season. The Bluejays have won their last four straight games, with wins over DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette and Providence in that stretch.

In the OT victory over the Friars, Ty-Shon Alexander led the Bluejays on 17 points with three rebounds and one assist. Martin Krampelj also had a nice line for Creighton there on 10 rebounds and 15 points.

DePaul is 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 11-25-3 ATS in their last 39 after a straight-up win. The under is 4-1 in the Demons’ last five road games and the over is 8-3 in their last 11 after an ATS win.

Meanwhile, the Jays are 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win. Creighton is 7-19 ATS in their last 26 Saturday gamesnad 4-0 ATS in their last four after a straight-up win.

DePaul really didn't have any issues with Georgetown, outscoring the Hoyas 54-31 in the first half on the way to a 101-69 victory. It was a far cry from the last time those teams met up, an 82-73 Georgetown win.

As for Creighton, they had a lull last month but seem to be doing pretty well over their last four games. I’m going to stick with the Bluejays here as I trust them a little bit more.

Pick:
Creighton Bluejays -7.5
