On the season Butler is 13-5 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 9-5 and St. Louis is 8-9 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 3-6.

St. Louis is 11-2 at home this season and Butler is 4-2 on the road.

St. Louis is not a high scoring team only ranking 198th in the nation in points per game, so to win this game they will have to play solid defense. Before conference play began the Billikens played solid D, but in Atlantic 10 play they are giving up an average of 65.8 ppg. [ad-6571516]

Butler leading scorer Rotnei Clarke (16.7 ppg) missed 2 weeks with an injury before coming back in his last game scoring 24 points in Butler’s last game. He was 13/14 from the charity stripe in that game and St. Louis has to keep him from getting to the rim and getting easy points from the free throw line.

Clark is the leading scorer, but Butler is stacked with 5 players averaging in double figures so the Billikens must play solid all-around defense.

St. Louis leading scorer Cody Ellis (11.2 ppg) has scored in double figures in 3 straight games and since the Billikens are not a high scoring team he will need help in the scoring department from Mike McCall Jr. (10.8 ppg) and Dwayne Evans (10.7 ppg).

St. Louis only ranks 291st in the nation in rebounding and their leading rebunder is Dwayne Evans (6.6 rpg), who is only 6’5″. While 6’4″ FW Roosevelt Jones (5.5 rpg) leads the Bulldogs in rebounding the Billikens will need to man up on 2nd leading rebounder 6’11” Andrew Smith (5.4 rpg).

St. Louis has lost 6 straight to top 10 teams, but they beat the last ranked team they faced in a win over New Mexico this season.

In some betting trends for this Atlantic 10 Conference game Butler is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games, and they have an Over record of 7-2 in their last 9 road games.

St. Louis is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 home games.

Jason’s Pick: Not sure why oddsmakers have St. Louis as the favorite in this game, as Butler is a much better team. Take Butler to not only cover the spread, but they will also leave tonight with a W.
