2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-3, 0-1 Away) vs. No. 7 Creighton Bluejays (6-2, 4-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, Dec. 4, 2022
Time: 4:30 p.m. ET
Venue: CHI Health Center Omaha — Omaha, NE
Coverage: FS1

The 2022-23 college basketball season continues on Sunday with a thrilling matchup between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and No. 7 Creighton Bluejays. Nebraska is coming off an impressive 88-67 win over Boston College on Wednesday. Keisei Tominaga scored a team-high 23 points off the bench.

Meanwhile, Creighton fell short in a 72-67 loss to Texas on Thursday. Ryan Kalkbrenner led the way with 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Ryan Nembhard tallied 6 assists. It was a lack of defense (3 forced turnovers) and unreliable bench scoring (0 points) that ultimately led to the disappointing loss.

Nebraska vs Creighton Prediction & Pick

Creighton has suffered back-to-back losses, but keep in mind they have come against the No. 2 ranked team (Texas) and No. 4 ranked team (Arizona) in the nation. The Bluejays kept the score close until the very end, too, which makes this stretch a small bump in the road more than anything else.

Head coach Greg McDermott's squad has a great chance to bounce back on Sunday. Nebraska's strengths lie in its ability to play aggressive defense without fouling (11.9 per game). Creighton employs the same strategy with better results, though, as the Bluejays average 11.4 fouls per game.

Final Score Prediction: Nebraska: 60 | Creighton: 78

Nebraska vs Creighton Best Bet

This is a head-to-head series the Bluejays have dominated in the past. Creighton is 9-1 straight up and 8-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last 10 games against Nebraska. It is also 14-6 ATS in its last 20 games against a Big Ten opponent overall. The Bluejays' success here shouldn't be overlooked.

On the other side, the Cornhuskers are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a Big East opponent. They are shooting well from the field (46.7%), but run into a Creighton squad that is making an insane 49.8% of their shots (No. 12 in NCAA). I expect this one to get out of hand early in the second half.

Bet: Creighton Bluejays -14.5 (-110)
