San Diego State vs Creighton Best Same Game Parlay
San Diego State vs Creighton Top SGP (+135) • DraftKings Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
- Creighton Alternate Spread +3.5 (-220)
- Over 129.5 Total Points (-170)
The Bluejays are favored in this game so buying a few points in the event they lose is a safe bet to add to this parlay.
I expect this to be a one-possession game so being on the right side of the +3.5 hook is important to this bet. I cannot foresee Creighton’s offense scoring less than 70 points in this contest and the Aztecs should be able to score at least 60 so taking the over 129.5 in the parlay gets us to a plus odds bet.
The key to both of these legs hitting will be the Bluejays’ three-point shooting. If they go cold from beyond the arc, we will be sweating out both of these legs.

If the Aztecs are going to advance to the Final Four then they will have to put on another defensive showcase.
They will have to restrict the Bluejays to under 65 points and slow down the pace of play. The Aztecs are only conceding 57.6 points per game in this tourney.

I think the Bluejays win this game in a nail biter of a finish but it wouldn’t surprise me if the Aztecs win another low-scoring game.
San Diego State is a physical and excellent rebounding side which won’t let up any easy buckets inside the paint. Creighton center Ryan Kalkbrenner will be tested in the paint and will need to help restrict the Aztecs from grabbing offensive rebounds.
