Butler Bulldogs

The Bulldogs are just 4-9-1 against the spread in their last 14 games overall and are 3-9-1 at the window in their last 13 games versus an opponent with a winning record.

Xavier Musketeers

The Musketeers are 12-25-3 against the spread in their last 40 games as a favorite and are 5-11-1 against the number in their last 17 home games.


With both teams struggling at the window, I don’t like either side. I do like the under, however. The under is 5-2 in the Bulldogs’ last seven games overall, is 5-1 in their last six games coming off a win of more than 20 points and is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win. On the other side, the under is 4-1-1 in the Musketeers’ last six games versus a team with a win percentage above .600 and is 4-0 in their last four games played on a Saturday.

Saturday NCAA College Basketball Prediction: Butler/Xavier UNDER 128.5
