Providence vs Butler College Basketball Betting Preview

Coming off an 89-84 home loss to Villanova, Providence now holds just a half-game lead in the Big East standings. With four left, including a rematch with Villanova to end the season, the Big East just got a lot more interesting. The recent loss was not much more than a small speedbump as Providence had won eight straight heading into the game dating back to January 4th. The issue with the Friars this year seems to be that they play to the level of the competition. Just once in their past eight games, has the game been decided by 10 or more points. Even though Butler hasn’t been anything special this year, it’s still likely to be a close game.

Butler has been one of the more streaky teams in the country this season. Unfortunately for them, most of their “streaks” are losing streaks. Butler has won two of their last three games, however. At this point of the season though, with only a conference tournament win getting them to any decent postseason tournament, there isn’t much to play for. With that in mind, the Bulldogs will have something to prove to their fans and the country as they have lost three of their last four conference games by two possessions or less.

Providence vs Butler Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks

In the last meeting between these two teams, Providence came out on top at home by a score of 69-62. While both teams shot well from the field overall, Butler shot just 20% from deep. The Bulldogs also missed three of their four free throws in the game.

With all those points left on the board, the total combined score for the game was 131. With an incredibly low total line again, Butler should be able to put up even more points. While the result of this game will be a toss-up. the safest play is to bet over the total points total.
