The Missouri Valley Conference is once again one of the most dangerous in the entire country. Don't be surprised if you see a Missouri Valley team do some damage in the NCAA Tournament.
These mid-majors are battle-tested thanks to a very tough conference schedule.
That team that does damage in the NCAA Tournament could well be the Creighton Blue Jays, but I don’t like them in this spot.
What's wrong with this spot for Creighton? First of all, Creighton is playing very well right now. They have lost three straight (two of them on the road).
Secondly, the Missouri Valley Conference has been awesome to home underdogs this year. Home teams are very tough to beat in this league.
Northern Iowa slows the game and keeps it close, and they definitely have a very nice home court advantage thanks to their crowd. The Panthers are 11-2 at home so far this year. Last year, Northern Iowa beat Creighton at home as a 1.5 point underdog.
Creighton has lost three of their last four road games inside the Missouri Valley Conference.
Creighton is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against teams with a winning record. They are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. Take Northern Iowa.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
