Afternoon Annihilation - Rickenbach CBB Game #684 Thursday 8* Xavier Musketeers (+) vs Creighton Bluejays @ 2:30 ET - The earliest line on this game yesterday was a -1 on Creighton. The Bluejays have since risen to as high as a 3-point favorite in this one. I'll gladly fade this move. Both these teams enter on hot streaks but this is another match-up where I like the difference in terms of recent play on defense. Xavier is 6-1 SU and ATS their last 7 games and the Musketeers have allowed approximately 40% from the field in those 7 games. Creighton enters this game on a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS run their last 5 games but the Bluejays have allowed approximately 45% from the field in their last 6 games. Another key to the value here is that the Musketeers Naji Marshall has been upgraded to probable for this game. The Bluejays are playing this game with road loss revenge but that is a situation that has seen Creighton go 1-5 SU and ATS this season! The Musketeers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these teams. That stretch includes a SU loss but ATS cover in the 2017 Big East tournament and now Xavier gets their shot at tourney revenge. I fully expect them to take advantage of it. 8* XAVIER
