Tips For Betting On Northern Iowa Creighton – McDermott, Creighton Ready To Steamroll Northern Iowa Tuesday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 1/14/2013 6:21:19 PM

All-American forward Doug McDermott certainly knows how to put on a show. After posting a season-high 39 points in Friday’s blowout win over Missouri State, don’t be surprised if McDermott chases that total when his No. 17 Creighton Bluejays host the Northern Iowa Panthers this Tuesday. The Bluejays have won 10-straight games since Boise State woke them up at home in late November, and after stumbling out of the gate in the Missouri Valley standings don’t expect Northern Iowa to give them much of a sports betting challenge.

The Panthers opened their conference schedule with consecutive losses to Wichita State and Indiana State before finally earning a win over winless Illinois State, but were on the wrong side of another tough home loss in their next home against Evansville. Beating Bradley at home was crucial to them avoiding another major confidence blow, but it’s about to get a whole lot tougher once again.

Senior Anthony James and sophomore Seth Tuttle have averaged just over 11 points per game, but that hasn’t been nearly good enough for a team that is as limited as Northern Iowa. The Panthers have averaged just 32.6 rebounds per game to rank 276th in the country, and that hasn’t been nearly good enough for a team that has struggled from the field. Tuttle has done a good job from beyond the arc and so has Marc Sonnen, but Northern Iowa hasn’t taken as many chances as they probably should have and its cost them in close losses to both the Sycamores and Aces.

Creighton is rolling following another blowout win, giving them three-straight double-digit victories and 10-straight wins overall. McDermott is averaging a ridiculous 57-perent from the field and over 50-percent from beyond the arc, with 23.6 points per game so far this season. The Bluejays’ 79.8 points per game is the 11th-best average in the country, and they are doing it while shooting 52-percent from the field, which is the second-best mark in the nation. Creighton is at its best when McDermott is hot, but they do have other online betting weapons including senior center Gregory Echenique, who can bang down low.

College Basketball Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Panthers have managed to remain competitive this season despite not having the strongest roster, but after losing at home to both Indiana State and Evansville it’s hard to imagine them somehow pulling off the road upset this week. Creighton has shown improvement throughout the year while climbing to 13th in the nation, and as long as they continue to score at the rate they have so far this season there is no chance they will be stopped at home against any team from the Missouri Valley conference.
