Bet on Xavier vs. Butler

Xavier has won the last two meetings with Butler, including a meeting on Jan. 2, 86-79. The Musketeers have covered in six of their last eight games against Butler. While Xavier is playing well, Butler has been a very tough team that home. The Bulldogs are the only team to pick up a win over Villanova and that came at home. The Musketeers have had their two losses in Big East play come on the road. They average nearly 10 points less on the road than they do overall. The public betting is slightly with Xavier, but I will take Butler to stay tough at home.
