Point Spread Pick:

Sure you have to give the Red Storm a gold star for coming back from an 18 point deficit to make a game of it in their game earlier in January against the Bluejays. Creighton may have let up on the gas pedal and we don’t expect that to happen this time around. They were without Grant Gibbs who is great at distributing the ball and looked pretty good coming off of the bench in their latest. That being said, the Red Storm is playing their best ball of the season with 5 wins in their last 6 and 4 straight covers against the spread. The total may be the play here, but we’ll take shot with the home team who certainly will not be intimidated. Take the St. John’s Red Storm +3
