San Diego State vs Creighton Prediction | March Madness Picks and Bracketology
The Aztecs once again have one of the best defenses in the country. In fact, they’re second in adjusted defensive efficiency, per KenPom. They also are top-10 in shooting percentage allowed. But as good as they are on defense, they are the opposite on offense.
Creighton has five new starters this season, so this is an inexperienced group. They also rank quite low in turnover differential, which is not a stat to rank low in come March.
This should be a low-scoring game where defense prevails, so we’ll side with San Diego State. I would love to take the under, but the point total is already so low.
