Butler is a 25-point favorite. The over/under is 152.5. All odds are via OddsShark.com.
Butler should cruise to an easy victory here. Northern Colorado only won 10 games last season. The newly developed Bulldog squad may falter early but come back and win by tens of points.
Inside the Numbers
Butler has won 28 consecutive nonconference home games coming in to this one. After their two exhibition games, Butler has shot 58 percent from the field while their opponents have shot 33 percent. Butler has also averaged 121.5 points per season opener in Holtmann’s past two seasons. I suspect a similar whooping as the Dawgs put on The Citadel last season, defeating them 144-71.
