Butler @ St. Louis Free Basketball Pick

January 31, 2013

butlerTonight at 9:00 pm EST Butler is in Missouri taking on St. Louis.  Butler comes into the game ranked number 9 in the country and is widely considered a “giant killer”.  Nobody wants to schedule Butler for that reason. This year they beat the Tar Heels at North Carolina. They beat the #1 Indiana Hoosiers at Indiana. They have also beaten Temple, Gonzaga and Marquette! This is a serious team with serious talent. Butler is 17-3 SU and 13-5 ATS (Against the spread).

St. Louis is having a good year.  They are 14-5 straight up and just 8-9 ATS.  Their biggest wins have come against Umass and Texas A&M.  They only have one loss at home. Perhaps that is why they are favored in this matchup. St. Louis is -2.5 points.

Under the Hood
St. Louis allows 57 points per game and scores about 66.  Butler allows 63 ppg and scores 71.  Roteni Clark is back in the lineup for Butler so this should add even more viability to an already viable team.  He is the leading scorer (averaging just under 17 points per contest).  St. Louis doesn’t have one star player but instead has a ‘score by committee’ approach. Their top scorer puts in just 11 points per game.

St. Louis is just 6-6 ATS this season at home.  Butler is 7-2 ATS on the road. For the life of me I cannot see St. Louis being 2.5 points better. The public has jumped all over Butler getting points and I can’t blame them.  Take (531) Butler +2.5. Bet it now at and get a 100% bonus.
