Marquette is one of the better teams in America. They are not perfect and don’t have a lot of margin for error but they can be really, really good.
Butler will still fight as well an any team in America but they are limited and the results this season migth be disappointing to teams that are used to more winning.
Marquette Golden Eagles
The Golden Eagles might not be championship elite but they are definitely not boring. They score 80ppg and are as lethal from long range as any team in the country. .
Markus Howard is one of the best scorers in the college game. He is so quick that he can get a shot off whenever he wants and he is not shy about it. Still he is making 43% of his threes.
The Hauser brothers are also great shooters, both making over 40% of their threes too so at anyone time there is a lot of shooting on the floor. They do the dirty work too.
Theo John gives them a physical presence inside that they can use to intimidate at the rim and grab any misses. This club has enough of everything to compete.
This Butler team is in danger of missing the Tournament this season. They already have 9 losses and are likely to take some more before the end of the season, plus the conference tournament and so on.
I like the evolution of Kamar Baldwin as a scorer but he has not been a good distributor this season. He turns the ball over too much. That keeps the team from getting in good rhythm.
The Bulldogs can shoot it too though with three regulars making at least 39%. One is forward and leading rebounder Sean McDermott who might not play in this one.
If he doesn’t go the Bulldogs will probably play bigger with Joey Brunk in the middle more. It could help with their rebounding but limits their offense even though he is not bad around the rim.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 23-9-1 in MARQ last 33 road games.

- Over is 7-1 in BUT last 8 overall.
Free Marquette Golden Eagles vs Butler Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
Marquette should be favoured in this spot. They have not always performed well in true road situations as they are very dependent on shooting.
Look for Butler to fight hard but I think this is a bad matchup for them…even at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Marquette ATS
Butler might be able to slow things down a bit but not enough.
