Creighton Bluejays

The Bluejays were impressive against the Kennesaw St. Fighting Owls defeating them 81-55. Ty-Shon Alexander let the scoring charge with 19 points, four rebounds along with five three-pointers. Marcus Zegarowski was phenomenal with 18 points, five assists and four threes during that game. The two formed a duo with both of them covering from inside and outside. Christian Bishop added the support and interior presence with 12 points, seven rebounds and four blocks. The Creighton Bluejays were on the mark beyond the three-point line shooting 48% and dominated the boards. The only stat that was a concern was their free-throw shooting with just only 37.5% in eight shots. Against the Wolverines, they are coming in as the underdogs and it should be interesting to see how the players respond to their first road game.

Players to watch: T. Alexander (19 PPG, 4 RPG, 1 APG, 1 BPG), M. Zegarowski (18 PPG, 3 RPG, 5 APG, 2 SPG), C. Bishop (12 PPG, 7 RPG, 1 SPG, 3 BPG).

Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines also took a win on their opener against the Appalachian St. Mountaineers,79-71. It was a got test for the team and seeing Eli Brooks shine was something Michigan expected. He had 24 points and shot 5-of-11 from the three-point arc. It was Jon Teske that helped Brooks get a lot of space from the outside providing the interior scoring with 17 points and he also had 13 rebounds and three blocks.  Isaiah Livers had a good game as well with 14 points but he also committed five turnovers in that game. Owning the home-court advantage, Michigan looks to take this game and predicted to win as well. But Creighton is a tough beast to handle with a strong possibility that the Wolverines can be beaten at home. 

Players to watch: E. Brooks G  (24 PPG, 2 RPG, 3 APG, 1 SPG, 1 BPG), J. Teske (17 PPG, 13 RPG, 1 APG, 3 BPG), I. Livers (14 PPG, 2 RPG, 1 APG, 1 SPG).

Creighton Bluejays vs Michigan Wolverines Betting Picks

It looks like a battle of threes with both teams love taking shots from the outside. Creighton needs to bring its trademark three-point shooting in this game to have a good chance to pull a road victory over the Wolverines. It would take more than Eli Brooks to bring this team and Isaiah Livers should help confuse the defense. For Creighton, Alexander and Zegarowski look formidable but shooters have a tendency to adjust in road games before their shots go in. Expect that Michigan will jump them in the beginning but Creighton can pull it close. NCAAB Point Spread picks have Michigan winning over Creighton but the last time these two teams met last year, it was an overtime victory with the Wolverines prevailing over Creighton.
