The Bulldogs leaned heavily on the production of Kelan Martin and he responded by pouring in a game high 34 points with seven rebounds on 10-19 from the floor followed by Sean McDermott with 17 points on 6-7 accuracy. Butler received 16 points from Kamar Baldwin on 5-13 while Nate Fowler chipped in with ten points on 5-7.

Villanova absorbed just their second loss of 2017-18 in a 79-75 loss to the last place St. John’s Red Storm as a 16 point home favorite. Villanova was outshot 49%-41.8% and their generally dependable perimeter game struggled to an 8-33 mark which negated 12 extra shots.

Jalen Brunson topped the Wildcats scoring with a contest high 28 points on 8-21 from the floor and 10-11 at the stripe. Nova saw Collin Gillespie toss in 12 points on 4-6 from beyond the arc while Mikal Bridges and Omari Spellman netted eleven points apiece with Spellman hauling in 12 rebounds.

Butler are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and Butler are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and over is 12-5 in Butler last 17 overall. Under is 7-2 in Villanova last 9 Saturday games and Villanova are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 Saturday games.

Butler has had some success in this matchup so I’m taking the points yet I still feel uneasy…
