Creighton vs Princeton Same Game Parlays

Last Updated: Mar 22, 2023

For the second straight NCAA Tournament, a 15-seeded team from New Jersey is in the Sweet 16. Princeton upset Arizona in the first round and then completely dominated Missouri in the Round of 32.

The Creighton Bluejays are heavy favorites to win this one, but as we have seen in this tournament, anything can happen. Three-point shooting and rebounding are going to be the keys in this matchup.

Let’s dive into the best parlays to build for this Sweet 16 showdown.

  • Creighton -5.5 (-210)
  • Creighton: Over 73.5 Points (-160)

When the Tigers beat Missouri last weekend, they faced off against one of the worst defensive teams in the nation. They’ll find things much tougher against the Bluejays, who are ranked 13th in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency rankings.

Creighton has scored 70-plus points in their first two tournament games, and it came in different ways. They struggled to score from beyond the arc against NC State, making only three threes, but found their stroke against Baylor knocking down 11 of their 24 three-point attempts.

The Bluejays have been one of the best three-point shooting teams all season, and I expect their success from beyond the arc to continue in this matchup. They should cover the 5.5-point alternate spread and put up a large total offensively.

Creighton vs Princeton Longshot Same Game Parlay

Creighton vs Princeton Longshot SGP (+650) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

  • Princeton Moneyline (+310)
  • Under 140.5 Total Points (-120)

Why not Princeton? Creighton has been an inconsistent team all season, and if they go on a cold streak in this game, the Tigers could pull off another upset.

One of the keys to Princeton’s victory against Missouri was their rebounding as they won the battle on the glass 44 to 30 with 16 offensive rebounds.

Missouri starts four guards, and Princeton was able to take advantage of their size in the paint. They won’t be able to do that against Creighton as they’ll be facing off against 7-foot-1 junior center Ryan Kalkbrenner.

But if Princeton can attack the rim early and get Kalkbrenner into foul trouble, they can regain the rebounding advantage.

Adding the Under to the parlay adds a lot of juice, and Princeton will need this to be a low-scoring game to win. If they get into a shootout against Creighton they will definitely lose.

The Tigers held Arizona to only 55 points and they will need a repeat defensive performance to knock off the Bluejays this Friday.
