Saint Louis is 1-4 ATS last 5 Thursday games. Butler is a dog once again on the road in an Atlantic 10 game. Even though they lost to La Salle last Wednesday by one, they were getting 2.5, so they did cover. Leading scorer Rotnei Clarkemissed two weeks after severely spraining his neck when he crashed into a padded basket support at Dayton on Jan. 12. Butler suffered its first league loss, 54-53 at La Salle on  Jan. 23, in one of the three games without him. The senior guard and transfer from Arkansas, averaging a team-best  16.7 points, played well in his first game back, an 83-71 home win over Temple  on Saturday. He scored 24 points, made 13 of 14 free-throw attempts and had a  career-best nine assists, nearly doubling his previous high. Saint Louis heads  into this game having won two straight and 11 of 13. The Billikens held St.  Bonaventure to 36.2 percent shooting in a 67-57 road victory Saturday as Dwayne  Evans had 18 points, his best scoring performance in a little more than two  months. Saint Louis is allowing 57.8 points per game for the season but has  given up 65.8 per contest in conference play. Butler is yielding an average of 62.2 in its league games. Clarke will help lead the way for the Bulldogs in this road victory.
