The Two College Basketball Games To Watch Tonight

Here are a couple of college basketball games worth checking on and betting on tonight:

Creighton @ Marquette

Marquette may not be the force it was last year in basketball, but they are still a formidable opponent in the Big East with a 15-10 record overall and a winning 7-5 record in conference play.

No. 11 ranked Creighton knows how tough Marquette is to beat.  It had its second-worst showing of the season in their first meeting with the team, shooting only 40 percent. They would still win the game 67-49.  However, that was before the Golden Eagles hit a bit of a hot streak.

Marquette has not been explosive, but they have been playing more consistently since mid January.  They have won five of their last seven and have been playing solid defense.  In other words, this one may be closer than it appears when comparing win-loss records.

The odds are close on this one, considering it is college hoops.  Creighton is only the -3 point favorites according to the spread at Bovada. The game starts at 8 p.m. ET.

UCLA @ California

UCLA has clawed its way back into the AP Top 25 thanks to three weeks of solid basketball.  They will be looking for their fourth straight win and seventh win out of their last eight against in-state and division rivals California.

UCLA hoping to win the Pac-12 title again, but California would not only love to play spoiler but with an 8-4 Pac-12 record could take it for themselves.

California has quietly built a reputation for tearing down ranked Pac-12 teams.  In fact, that haven’t lost to a ranked division rival in almost three years.  That is a 5-0 record against ranked Pac-12 opponents.  Not to mention they recently upset the No.1 ranked Arizona at the beginning of the month. 

California is actually the -2 point favorites to beat the ranked UCLA over at Bovada.  The game starts at 10:30 p.m ET.
