NCAAB FREE PICK: Creighton -8
Drake vs. Creighton,

Score: 61 - 68
Point Spread: -8/-105 Creighton
I look for Creighton to have no problem against Drake tonight in their first game of the Missouri Valley Tournament. Creighton had no problem against the Bulldogs in their two regular season matchups, beating Drake by 17 at home and 8 on the road.
Drake figures to have some tired legs after playing last night. They were able to come away with an impressive 65-49 win against Bradley, but Bradley is the worst team in the conference and nothing like what they will see tonight against the Bluejays.
A big factor in this game is how bad Drake has played away from home this season. They are 12-3 at home this season, but just 5-11 on the road. The Bluejays on the other hand are 11-3 in road games. I look for Creighton to jump all over the Bulldogs early and cruise to an easy double-digit win.
Creighton is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as a favorite of 7.0-12.5, while Drake is just 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. BET CREIGHTON!
