Opening Odds Analysis

Early bettors jumped at the opportunity to get Villanova as such a small home favorite, driving the line up a full 2 points from its opener of -2.5 to the current line of Villanova -4.5. The total has also been pushed up 1.5 points to 129 points. The Wildcats are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games played in January.

Butler News & Notes

Butler enjoyed a near-perfect first half as its road win over Providence on January 10 brought the Bulldogs’ record to 15-1 SU and 11-4-1 ATS. But since that win, the Bulldogs have suffered back-to-back losses, at home against Seton Hall as a 4.5-point favorite and on the road against DePaul as a 4-point favorite. The Bulldogs rank fifth in the nation this season in scoring defense, yielding only 57.1 points per game, but they’ve allowed 78 and 79 in their last two games.

The key to success against Villanova will be to get back on track defensively as the Wildcats aren’t a team the Bulldogs want to try to keep up with on offense. Butler is just 5-15 SU and 7-12-1 ATS in its last 20 games on the road.

Villanova News & Notes

After relying heavily on Phil Booth and Eric Paschall on offense last season, the Wildcats are spreading the ball around a lot more in 2019-20. Saddiq Bey leads the way with 15.1 points per game and a three-point shooting percentage of 44.9, but Villanova has five players averaging over 10 points per game this season. Since losing two of their first six games, the Wildcats are 10-1 SU over their last 11.

Despite the straight-up success, the Wildcats are 4-8 ATS over their last 12 games, including a 3-5 ATS record at home. In its last six home games against Butler, Villanova is 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS.

Betting Pick: UNDER 129

The UNDER is 6-1 in Villanova’s last seven games, and Butler is due for a strong defensive effort after an uncharacteristic week last week. This one should be tight and go UNDER the posted total.
