Creighton vs. Southern Illinois,

Score: 81 - 51
Point Spread: -10½/-110 Creighton
The Creighton Bluejays are highly motivated for a victory tonight over the Southern Illinois Salukis. While the Blue Jays are 17-3 this season, they are coming off back-to-back road losses to Wichita State and Drake by a combined 8 points.
I look for Creighton to take out its frustration on the lowly Salukis, who are just 8-11 on the season. Southern Illinois has lost eight of its last nine games overall with five of those losses coming by 11 points or more.
Southern Illinois G Jeff Early is expected to miss this game due to a suspension. That's a huge loss for the Salukis as Early is their second-leading scorer (12.7 PPG) and top rebounder (7.5 RPG).
Creighton has won nine straight meetings with Southern Illinois while going 7-2 ATS in the process. In fact, the Bluejays have really owned this series of late, winning three straight meetings with the Salukis all by exactly 19 points. The road team is 21-7 ATS in the last 28 meetings, and Creighton is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Bluejays are 25-6 ATS in their last 31 Sunday games. Creighton is 4-0-2 ATS in its last 6 games following a ATS loss. The Salukis are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Bluejays are 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Southern Illinois dating back to 2007. Take Creighton Sunday.
