Prior to this week Butler had been the only team to takedown the Wildcats. That should help with confidence but they did have an emotional loss earlier in the week.
Villanova stumbled at home earlier in the week against St. John’s. It was a surprise for sure and perhaps the Wildcats were looking ahead.
This is a tough stretch for Butler. They just hosted Xavier and lots in OT and now they have to hit the road and play what will be an ornery Wildcats team.
Kelan Martin has to be in the conversation for Big East player of the year. He just played all 45 minutes and dropped 34 points on Xavier and is third in the conference in scoring. Without much help.
Kamar Baldwin is a nice secondary option who has proven his freshman effort was no fluke. Butler has nice roster balance for when Martin graduates at season’s end.
When Butler beat Villanova at home they were scorching from the floor – making 15 three pointers. If they can make shots at a high level again anything is possible.
St. John’s just beat Duke on their home floor but it was even more of an upset to beat Villanova on the road. I don’t think anyone saw it coming.
Jalen Brunson is also in that conversation for POY. He had an off night against the Red Storm as his efficiency disappeared. He made just 2 of 11 three pointers. That is high volume for a guy that isn’t a gunner.
The rest of the team also struggled save Collin Gillespie who was 4 for 6 on threes. Just a freshman they could really use him to make up for depth they lost when Phil Booth got hurt.
Omari Spellman has size inside and has become a reliable rebounder but the scoring has been inconsistent for the former five star. He only had 6 in the previous game against Butler.

Free Butler Bulldogs vs Villanova Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Curious line here and interested to see how the recent losses influence it. The Wildcats were -5.5 on the road.
There is no doubt the Bulldog can pull off the upset but I would have liked their chances better if Villanova was still cruising.

The Wildcats win and will do so emphatically. They will jump all over the Bulldogs and be very motivated.
