Against The Spread Pick
St. John’s will be looking to add to the Bulldogs’ recent stretch of bad luck as the Red Storm make a visit to Hinkle Fieldhouse. Butler is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games. The Red Storm are 1-10 in their last 11 games on the road. The Bulldogs have won 14 of its last 17 games at home. Butler can ill afford another loss against a non-tournament team. Their seeding continues to trend in the wrong direction. However, this is the kind of match-up they can take advantage of the Bulldogs have won seven of the last 10 head-to-head meetings. Take Butler to cover nine points.
Over Under Pick
St. John’s has had much success this season but one thing they have been successful at is scoring the basketball at a high rate. The Red Storm has given up over 70 points in each of their last four games. The Bulldogs and Red Storm combined for 118 points in their first meeting this season. Taking an over 138-point total is out of the question, roll with the under here.
