How bad does Kentucky have to be that they are traveling to Creighton in the NIT and are the underdog at -2. Hard to imagine at the beginning of this season that anyone would have imagined this scenario but never the less it has occurred. The Wildcats started there NIT off with a bang playing at home and winning by 10 points and looking very impressive. Creighton on the other hand did win but had to hold on late barely beating Bowling Green by 2 points. Lets look at records and trend for this match up:


  • Creighton  27-7 overall    16-13 ATS
  • Kentucky  21-13 overall   14-14 ATS
  • Kentucky is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games
  • Kentucky is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games on the road
  • Creighton is 0-4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
  • Creighton is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games at home
Neither one of these teams have been playing well ATS but you have to think the toughness of the schedule for UK will help them in this match up. Creighton has not faced any player as good as Patrick Paterson and Jody Meeks. UK getting 2 points on the road isn't a lock but definitely think Meeks and Patterson can carry this Wildcat team all the way to Madison Square Gardens. Both of these players are most likely auditioning for the NBA draft as both most likely will leaver early. Creighton will keep it close early but UK is too athletic and the stars will prevail.  SCORE  UK 73 - CREI 70
