Arizona State vs Creighton Prediction & Pick

Arizona State's recent run has been impressive, but it's clear that the program is benefiting from an easy schedule. The Sun Devils' last five opponents have combined to a 20-28 record, which includes two teams that are each 3-7 this season. Needless to say, the Bluejays will be one of their toughest opponents thus far.

Sure, Creighton hasn't looked great lately, but two of the last four losses came against Arizona and Texas — two top-10 programs. The Bluejays lost both of those outings by two or fewer possessions, showcasing that they do have what it takes to hang with top schools.

Furthermore, Creighton has won four of its last six meetings with Arizona State, picking up those victories by an average margin of 15 points. Considering that the Bluejays have also covered the spread in 10 of their last 12 games against Pac-12 schools, this is the perfect game for them to turn their luck around.

Final Score Prediction: Creighton: 73 | Arizona State: 68

Arizona State vs Creighton Best Bet

As far as the best bet goes, I recommend going with the under on the 142.5-point total. First of all, both teams have solid defenses, proven by Arizona State only allowing 59.8 PPG (No. 19) while Creighton surrenders just 68.8 PPG (T-No. 147).

Secondly, the total has gone under in each of Arizona State's last six outings against Big East schools, as well as in three of Creighton's last four games this season. With the Sun Devils and Bluejays also averaging just 121 points in their last two meetings, it's easy to see why the under is the way to go.

Bet: Under 142.5 Points (-114)
