Sweet 16 – South Region – 9:00 pm EST (TBS)
(15) Princeton (23-8) vs (6) Creighton (23-12)
The underdog story continues as the 15th-seeded Princeton Tigers take on the Creighton Bluejays. Just last year did we see history where 15th seeded Saint Peter’s made it to the Elite 8, perhaps history will repeat itself this evening as we once again have another school from New Jersey busting brackets. With a win, Princeton will become only the second No. 15 seed to advance to the Elite 8.
I’m going to keep this pretty short and sweet, I’m riding the Princeton bandwagon. Yes, Creighton took down both NC State and Baylor however those were two teams in my opinion that had average years based on their early season projections. Creighton is averaging 76.7 points however their defense is giving up 67.9 points per game. They have been playing behind their stud Ryan Nembhard.
Here are the numbers you need to know: Princeton is 6-0 in their last six games, 6-0 in their last six tournament games and better, 6-0 as underdogs. I’m taking the Tigers tonight.
PICKS: Princeton +10 (-107) & Princeton ML (+420)
