The No. 6 Creighton Bluejays will face the No. 11 NC State Wolfpack in the first round of the 2023 NCAA Tournament. We’re taking a look at the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook.
Creighton had a very impressive run in a competitive Big East, finishing third in the conference. The Bluejays rank 15th in adjusted defensive efficiency at KenPom, and if they heat up in the conference tournament, they could be a real threat to other Big East hopefuls. They average 28.9 rebounds per game, fifth-highest in the nation.
NC State faded down the stretch but did enough to make the NCAA Tournament. Led by Terquavion Smith and Jarkel Joiner — who both averaged more than 17 points per game — the Wolfpack have a real shot to make some noise in March Madness.
