Big East action sees the Butler Bulldogs on the road to take on the Villanova Wildcats on Sunday, January 16th.
The tip-off is set for 12:00 ET from the Pavilion.
The Wildcats started off as a 16 point favorite and that number is now down to 15. The total has gone from 123 to 123.5.
Butler may not be the flashiest team out there, but they have been a solid group this season. They are not an an easy win for any team in their conference.
The Bulldogs beat the Georgetown Hoyas on Thursday by a score of 72-58. They will be in for a much bigger challenge on Sunday when they face off with the Wildcats.
Things have not exactly gone well for these guys when they have faced good teams. They already have losses to Purdue, Xavier, Seton Hall, and Houston on their resume.
Jair Bolden had a very good day on offense in their last win with 23 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists. Bryce Nze also added in 14 points and 8 rebounds.
Villanova is playing quite well at the moment and that should not come to the surprise of people. They may not be as dominant of a team as they have been in past years, but they are still quite good.
The Wildcats currently have a record of 12-4. The only loss that they were just terrible in was the one to Baylor, but I think a lot of teams do not play well when they go against the Bears.
This club took care of the Xavier Musketeers on Wednesday by a score of 64-60. They did let their opponent back in the game, but they still got the job done, which is the most important thing.
In the win over Xavier, the leading scorer for this team was Collin Gillespie, who had 21 points on the night. Also, Justin Moore chipped in 16 points and 9 rebounds.

Free Butler Bulldogs vs. Villanova Wildcats NCAAB Summary:
Butler will try and change the narrative that they cannot take down the best competition. They will get another chance at that when they face Nova, but the task will be very tall for them.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Villanova ATS
After a nice win for the Wildcats on the road over a good team in Xavier, it is important that Villanova does not live on the past. Although they should take care of business on Sunday, they know the Bulldogs can be tough to take down.
At this point in the season, I just feel that Villanova is in a good rhythm and that will show itself on Sunday. As the game progresses, I can see them being too much for Butler to handle on both sides of the ball.
15 sure is a high number to lay in a game such as this, but I like Nova. They are not strangers to covering these numbers and they certainly have the coach and players that make me trust them in this spot over a team they are better than.
Give me Villanova laying the points here.
