On Thursday a battle in the Big East will take place. The fifteenth ranked Creighton Blue Jays return home with wins over Seton Hall and DePaul in a two game road trip. The Blue Jays will defend home court against the Georgetown Hoyas.
The Blue Jays are soaring through a three game win streak while the Hoyas are reeling after going 1-5 in their last 6 games.
The Creighton BlueJays stand utop the Big East with a 9-3 conference record only behind the Villanova Wildcats who own a perfect 6-0 record. The BlueJays need to be careful to not look ahead to their match up with Villanova following the Georgetown game.
The Blue Jays came away with a sloppy victory against DePaul. The Blue Jays showed their resilience come back from a 16 point second half deficit. A glaring issue from the Blue Jays recently has been playing down to their opponents level.
Despite the 2-5 conference record Georgetown cannot be overlooked and played down to. Creighton leads the Big East with 80.2 points per game and field goal percentage (.485), and is second in field goal percentage defense (.401).
Blue Jay Player Spotlight
Marcus Zegarowski has been lights out for the Jays. Zegarowski averages 14.9 points per game and leads the team in assists with 4 per game. Zegarowski earned Big East player of the week honors when he averaged 18.5 PPG in the Blue Jays road games against Seton Hall and DePaul. Look for Zegarowski to continue his top performance against a struggling defense.
The usually sound Georgetown Hoyas have been a mess this season. COVID restrictions aren’t helping as they had a three week bye before their latest victory against Providence. The Hoyas were -4.5 point underdogs in their upset victory.
The Hoyas have yet to win a road game this season. Georgetown is averaging 71.6 points per game. The team finished with 73 points in their last game, making 40.6 percent of their field goals and 26.1 percent of their three-pointers.

Georgetown Player Spotlight
There hasn’t been much to celebrate on the Hoyas. Chudier Bile had a nice game with 19 points and 9 rebound in the upset win against Providence. The player to watch on the Hoyas is senior Jahvon Blair. Blair has averaged 17.3 PPG 4.6 RPG and 4 APG.
The Blue Jays have a good defense so expect Blair to face a lot of pressure. He will likely rack up assists as the defense tries to force the ball around
Georgetown at Creighton Betting Prediction
The Blue Jays will take care of business at home but it will be a close one. The Jays are 7-10 ATS overall and 6-10 ATS at home. The Hoyas defense is porous but a chance to upset a conference foe in their home building will certainly play a factor. Creighton is 6-1 at home against the Hoyas, including five straight victories.
