San Diego State vs Creighton Predictions | Best Bets & Odds

Last Updated: Mar 25, 2023

For the first time in NCAA Tournament history there will not be a number one seed in the Elite 8 and San Diego State had a big part to play in making that happen. The Aztecs knocked off the overall number one seed Alabama in the Sweet 16 71-64. This is the first Elite 8 appearance in San Diego State’s program history.

The Creighton Bluejays offense has been on full display this tournament averaging 81 points per game with two games with 85+ points including their 86-75 win over Princeton in the Sweet 16. The Bluejays are finding their stride at the right time and it seems

San Diego State vs Creighton Prediction

San Diego State 67, Creighton 70

San Diego State has now defeated two of the top offenses in the country in Furman and Alabama in back-to-back games. The Aztecs’ offensive rebounding is leading them to victories as they had 17 against the Crimson Tide. Creighton is one of the best three-pointing shooting teams in the nation and made 37.5% of their threes against Princeton.

The Aztecs are one of the best teams in the nation defending against the three and held Alabama to only 11.1% from beyond the arc in their Sweet 16 matchup. This is going to be a very tight matchup that will likely come down to the last possession of the game.

I give the slight edge to the Bluejays because their three starting guards all shoot over 80% from the free throw line which is essential to closing out games. Only Matt Bradley shoots above 80% from the free throw from the Aztecs’ starting lineup.

WAGER: 1 Unit

This will be the best defense that Creighton has faced so far in the tournament but I don’t think their offense will be completely shut down.

The Aztecs were able to score 71 points against the tough Crimson Tide defense and contain them to only 64.

The Aztecs play at a much slower pace than the Bluejays, but if Creighton is able to knock down their three-point jumpers then this will be a high-scoring game.

Creighton is 22nd in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency rankings and will take on a top-five defense in the Aztecs. The over will definitely be a sweat but a close contest will usually lead to free throws down the stretch which will tip the scales to the over.
