Against The Spread Pick
The Big East has been ultra-competitive this year and this should be another one of those games. These teams just faced off a couple of weeks ago and Marquette came out of that game with a win by 20 points. For the Golden Eagles it’s all about Markus Howard and the first time these two teams faced off he put up 35 points. The Muskateers can try to slow him down, but it’s not going to happen. The Muskateers are 3-9-1 against the spread in their last 13 home games. I like the Golden Eagles to win this game, but will take the points just to be safe. This is one of the better plays on the board.
Over Under Pick
The Golden Eagles are a good offensive team, and even on the road they should be able to run up the score. In each of the last four games for the Eagles they have scored at least 82 points. Butler is considered a good defensive team and they put up 85 points. Even at home, the Muskateers are going to have to take the pace of the Golden Eagles which should lead to plenty of points scored.
