Gamblin’ Info

Butler is a 2-point favorite, according to OddsShark.com.


The Stakes

Butler will most certainly be ranked come next week if they manage to pull off this Top 10 upset. Even though I guess it isn’t really an upset if they are a two-point favorite. Butler will be able to join the ranks of Nova, X and Creighton in the Top 25 and as the only four undefeated teams still left in the Big East. Seton Hall would have been included in this list, but Florida happened last night.


Inside the Numbers

This is the first time since the 2001 NCAA Tournament that these two teams have faced each other. Arizona won that last matchup 73-52. The Bulldogs currently lead the Big East in both turnover margin and assist/turnover ratio. Butler is also 31-0 in the last three seasons when scoring 75+ points.
