Butler Has Owned Seton Hall ATS

The Big East schedule features a matchup between two teams trending in different directions when the Seton Hall Pirates visit the Butler Bulldogs Wednesday. Though Butler is just 2-2 SU in their past four, albeit those losses came against two top five ranked teams, they have dominated Seton Hall for bettors as the Bulldogs have covered in each of the past six meetings between the teams.

Shark Bites
  • Seton Hall is 3-0 SU in their past three games as underdogs.
  • Butler is 6-2 ATS in their past eight games in March.
  • The UNDER is 7-2 in Butler’s past nine games with a closing total of 147 or more.

Butler’s offense has been feast or famine recently with the team averaging 89 points per game in their past two wins, but just 62 points in their past two losses. Kelan Martin had arguably his best game of the season when these two teams met earlier this season, as the sophomore scored 23 points and corralled 10 rebounds.

After a span that saw them go 1-4 SU to start January, Seton Hall has become one of the hottest teams in the nation with wins in eight of their nine outings since. The Pirates have been flexing their defensive muscle in their winning streak as they have held seven of their past nine opponents under 70 points, with only Butler and Xavier eclipsing that mark.
