Date: Monday, Nov. 21, 2022

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Monday, Nov. 21 with another slate of games, including a Maui Jim Maui Invitational matchup between the No. 23 Texas Tech Red Raiders and No. 10 Creighton Bluejays.

Texas Tech has now won three games in a row after scoring a 64-55 win over Louisiana Tech exactly one week ago. Meanwhile, Creighton blew out UC Riverside, 80-51 on Thursday, led by Baylor Scheierman's 17-point effort on 7-of-10 shooting.

Can Texas Tech improve to 4-0 with a Maui Jim Maui Invitational victory? Or will Creighton continue dominating its competition?

Texas Tech vs Creighton Prediction & Pick

Both competitors enter this match as two of the best programs in the nation. While Creighton has the offensive advantage, averaging 85.5 points per game (No. 16) compared to Texas Tech's rate (71.7 PPG, No. 162), it's the latter that's looked better on defense.

The Red Raiders have held opponents to just 52.7 PPG (No. 8) on a 33.3% field-goal percentage (No. 10). While the Bluejays haven't been allowing a ton of points, it's worth pointing out that the Bluejays are allowing opponents to shoot 40.7% from the floor (No. 108) and 38.4% from three-point range.

I think Texas Tech's defense will be the difference-maker, leading to a Red Raiders victory.

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 75 | Creighton: 70

Texas Tech vs Creighton Best Bet

Projecting Texas Tech to pull off an upset, I'm backing the Red Raiders as +128 moneyline underdogs. Their defense is legit and even though Creighton has had decent success against the Big 12, Texas Tech has all of the tools to walk out with the victory this afternoon.

Bet: Texas Tech ML (+128)
