Could UNDER Be The Play When Creighton, Butler Meet?

Two teams trending in the wrong direction meet with plenty to prove as the Creighton Bluejays travel to Hinkle Fieldhouse to take on the Butler Bulldogs on Tuesday. Offense has been hard to come by when these Big East opponents clash, with the UNDER hitting in five of Creighton and Butler’s past six meetings.

Shark Bites
  • Creighton is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games against Butler.
  • The visiting team is 0-3 SU in the last 3 games between Creighton and Butler.
  • Butler is 10-1 SU and ATS in its last 11 games with two days off between games.

Creighton has been missing Maurice Watson Jr., going 1-2 SU and ATS since the senior was sidelined for the season due to a torn ACL. During the two losses, senior Isaiah Zierden started in place of Watson but freshman Davion Mintz got the start in Creighton’s win over DePaul. If the Bluejays want to find their footing, leading scorer Marcus Foster needs to stop turning the ball over, as the junior has averaged 4.3 giveaways per game in the past three.

Butler is coming off a tough loss to Georgetown in which the Bulldogs struggled defensively. That loss, Butler's first at home this season, saw the Bulldogs allow Georgetown to shoot 72.7 percent from the field in the second half and 63.8 for the game. Freshman Kamar Baldwin continues to assert himself in the Bulldogs lineup with the guard averaging 15.8 points while shooting over 50 percent from the floor in the past five.
