Wednesday night Big East action will see the Seton Hall Pirates take on the Butler Bulldogs. Both teams are undefeated in the Big East, making this a highly anticipated match-up. Also, Butler is a top 5 team, so their arena is going to be rocking.
Seton Hall Pirates
The Pirates come into this game on a six-game winning streak. Four of these games were against conference opponents, so as of now they sit in first place in the Big East.
They most recently downed Marquette by a final score of 69-55. It was defense that stepped up in this game because their offense were not able to get much going.
Speaking of offense, the Pirates average 75.1 points per game. On the road, this average dips to 70.8 points per game. However, in conference play so far, the Pirates have averaged 76 points per game, so they have actually increased their scoring as of recently.
Now it is safe to say that their offense runs through Myles Powell. He is leading the team in scoring by averaging 21.5 points per game. Sandro Mamukelashvili is averaging 10.9 points per game, but is still out until at least early February with a wrist injury. This has forced Powell to carry this team, but one bad shooting night and the Pirates are toast.
Defense is one area that has been pretty solid for this Pirates team. They allow an average of 64.1 points per game. Teams are shooting just 38.4% against them, which ranks 30th in the country. Playing Butler on in Hinkle Fieldhouse will be a different story though and if the Pirates do not get off to a fast start, they will be in trouble.
The Bulldogs continue to have a magical season and now find themselves ranked inside the top 5. They have won six games in a row and have already won three Big East games as well.
Offensively, Butler is not a team that will score 80+ or even 75+ every time they touch the floor. They are about grinding you out with defense and slowly putting you away with a high shooting percentage.
On the season, the Bulldogs average just 68.8 points per game. In home games this average increases to 72.3. In conference games however, their scoring has decreased slightly to 67 points per game.
Kamar Baldwin leads this team by averaging 14.8 points per game. Sean McDermott is the only other player to average in double figures at 11.6.
Defense is where the Bulldogs have dominated all season and it is the reason they are 4th in the country in scoring defense. They allow just 54.4 points per game. In home games, they allow even less points at 51.4 per game.
Butler also allows just 36.8% from the field and 26.2% from the three-point line. Furthermore, they are the 2nd best team in the country at allowing rebounds. As long at Butler slows down Myles Powell, Seton Hall is not going to have an answer to this defense.
CBB Betting Trends:
- BUT are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games.
Free Seton Hall Pirates vs. Butler Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
Butler is undefeated at home and I do not believe they will snap that streak here. I like the Bulldogs to get a comfortable win and to cover the spread.
