Free Butler Bulldogs vs. Georgetown Hoyas NCAAB Prediction:
This has the makings to be a high scoring affair.
The Bulldogs have been able to play a little better defense this season, but the Hoyas are known for a solid home crowd.
Playing against a team that has made as much noise as Butler has this week could provide some much needed energy on the court for Georgetown.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Butler
I wrote the prediction on this site for the Villanova vs. Butler game Tuesday and it ended the way I thought it would, a Butler win.
The Bulldogs have no issue going basket for basket with the big boys, but it’s the games like this one that always gets them.
They need more wins in games like this to prove they are a top ten or better team in the country and I think they get a huge win on the road here.
