Marquette Golden Eagles vs Creighton Bluejays 3/10/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Marquette Golden Eagles will meet with the Creighton Bluejays in a Big East Conference Quarterfinal clash in Madison Square Garden, NY, on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 2:30 PM (EST).

 

The Golden Eagles will make the NCAA Tournament because they were better than most expected in their first year under head coach Shaka Smart, and they ended a late-season losing streak last weekend by defeating St. John’s.

 

Marquette strung up consecutive runs of 10-0 and 11-0 in the first half to take a 19-18 lead, and the Golden Eagles kept the Red Storm at bay by dominating the second half 43-42.

 

Darryl Morsell contributed 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists to Justin Lewis’ 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Marquette’s defense was outstanding, allowing the Red Storm to shoot 41.4 percent from the field, including 5/19 from the three-point range.

 

The Golden Eagles are 16-14 against the spread, but they went six games without covering the spread, including defeats to DePaul and Butler, before beating St. John’s.

 

  • The University of Marquette Golden Eagles is 11-5 SU in their last 16 matches.
  • Marquette is 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches against Creighton.
  • The Golden Eagles are 1-5-1 ATS in their previous 7 matches in the Big East Conference.

Marquette Golden Eagles vs Creighton Bluejays Predictions 3/10/2022

 

After losing a home game to Seton Hall to close the regular season, the Bluejays are in a good position to make the NCAA Tournament, but they must win their first match at Madison Square Garden to feel comfortable.

 

Seton Hall responded with a 14-2 run before adding a separate 10-0 burst down the length of the second, giving Creighton a 26-15 advantage at the 8:21 mark of the first.

 

On 5/9 shooting from the floor, Ryan Kalkbrenner led the Bluejays with 17 points, eight rebounds, and 3 blocks, while Ryan Hawkins scored 17 points, seven boards, and two steals. Creighton’s shorthanded offense faltered mightily, shooting 38.9% from the floor and committing 14 turnovers.

 

The Bluejays are 16-14 against the spread and lost three straight matches, including a thrashing at the hands of No. 11 Providence.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Creighton’s last 12 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of Creighton’s last 12 matches against Marquette.
  • Creighton is 7-2 SU in their last 9 matches in the Big East Conference.

Marquette Golden Eagles vs Creighton Bluejays. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Marquette Golden Eagles.

 

While Creighton had a solid season, the loss to starting point guard Nembhard came at an inopportune moment, and the offense struggled in the 3 matches following. That will make a major difference for Marquette today after the two regular-season matchups between these two teams came down to the wire, with the Golden Eagles’ better offense coming out on top.

 

To beat Marquette, you have to win the battle of the boards, but Creighton is simply an average rebounding club, with Kalkbrenner dominating the offensive boards.

 

Since Nembhard’s injury, Creighton averaged just over 0.9 points per possession, but it won’t be enough to upset a well-rounded Marquette squad. The Marquette Golden Eagles will win to a predicted score of 74-68.
