Sport: NCAAB | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800) - Final Score CREI 74 at CONN 66
-7 CREI (-109) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on CREIGHTON. The Huskies had everything going for them in the first meeting. Health. Homecourt. Momentum. They almost pulled it off, too. They didn't though, as Creighton was able to eke out an OT win. Things will be much tougher for the Huskies this time. Instead of coming in on a winning streak, the Huskies are off an upset loss. You may recall that we backed St. John's in that one. Instead of playing at home, the Huskies are now at a very difficult venue. Creighton is 38-9 SU its last 47 home games and that includes a 6-2 ATS (7-1 SU) mark as home favorites in the -6.5 to -9 range. It should also be noted that the Huskies had James Bouknight for the first meeting. He had 40 of UConn's 74 points in that game and he won't be available for this one. Creighton rolls. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
