College basketball picks for Creighton vs. Xavier

Before tuning into the Xavier vs. Creighton game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. The model enters Week 12 of the season 45-26 on all-top rated college basketball picks, returning more than $1,100 for $100 players. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns. 

For Xavier vs. Creighton, the model projects that the Bluejays cover the spread as 5-point home favorites. The Musketeers are coming off a shaky performance, as they nearly blew a 17-point lead in the second half against UConn on Wednesday before holding on down the stretch. Meanwhile, Creighton posted its highest-scoring output of the season in its 104-76 win over St. John's earlier this week.

The Bluejays led by 13 points at halftime and by as many as 30 in the second half, with Baylor Scheierman posting a 17-point, 10-rebound double-double to lead five players in double figures. They have now won three straight games since their narrow road loss at Xavier earlier this month. The Musketeers have been squeaking past opponents lately, with nine of their last 10 wins coming by 10 points or less.

Creighton's offense is on fire right now, so it is going to be difficult for Xavier to pick up another close win. The model expects the Bluejays' balanced lineup to be too much for the Musketeers to handle, identifying the home team as the side with all the value in this matchup. Stream the game right here
