Game Info: Sunday, March 26, 2022 at 2:20 p.m. EST (KFC Yum! Center)
Betting Odds: Creighton (-2) / Over/Under (134.5)
Pick: San Diego State (+2)
Sunday afternoon brings us a mouth-watering clash to sit back and enjoy between the Creighton Bluejays and San Diego Aztecs in one of the last Elite 8 games to see who can punch their ticket to the Final 4.
Creighton has slowly but surely hit their stride over the last few weeks. They are 6-1 SU and ATS over their last 7 games, beating Baylor, Villanova, and NC State in their path. They have ramped up their offensive production when it has mattered most, which has allowed them to pull away from their opponents with ease during this run of games. Their leading scorer, Junior center Ryan Kalkbrenner, has been the leader of his squad all season long. He is 2nd in the nation in field goal percentage, shooting a stellar 70.8%, a number that is quite surreal when you think about it twice. Head Coach Greg McDermott will need to have a key game plan for his big man if he wants to execute at a high level on Sunday afternoon. As Creighton heads into the KFC Yum! Center against one of the best defenses in the country, it will be a true test to see if they can overcome the odds and advance to the Final 4.

San Diego State completed one of the biggest upsets of the season on Friday night when they took down the #1-seeded Alabama Crimson Tide by a score of 71-64. In that matchup, they were able to completely shut down Alabama's leading scorer Brandon Miller, holding him to a mere 3-19 shooting night. On top of the phenomenal defensive display that they seem to show up with night in and night out, they were able to get a massive performance on the offensive side of the ball from Senior guard, Darrion Trammell. Although he only averaged 9.8 PPG in the regular season, he found a way to more than double that in the Sweet 16, with a 21-point outing. Coming off of a shocking win, they have now won all of their last 5 games SU and ATS and will love their chances of extending on that if they can find a similar output from any of their star guards. Can San Diego State continue to shock the world and secure another upset win?
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- San Diego State is 5-0 ATS over their last 5 games
- The under is 8-5 when the Bluejays are playing against ranked opponents
- The under has hit in the last 11 San Diego State games
This game should play down right to the wire if both teams can bring their best, as they have been doing of late. As I did last game though, I will continue to ride with the under-appreciated Aztecs as the underdog in this matchup. With the chance to squeak their way into the Final 4, I expect them to show up and suffocate the Bluejays from the jump. Give me San Diego State to keep the train rolling!
