The Houston Cougars will battle the Butler Bulldogs in the Maui Invitational on Monday. 

Houston beat Virginia by 20 points on Tuesday in their last contest. Junior guard Marcus Sasser led all players with 19 points, four assists and three steals, while senior guard Kyler Edwards poured in 18 points, thanks to 5-of-6 shooting from the 3-point line. 

The Cougars are led in scoring by Marcus Sesser who is averaging 23 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists for Houston. Edwards is behind him averaging 15 points and 6 assists.

The Cougars are scoring 76.3 points per game on 44.8% shooting from the field. They are allowing 56 points per contest which ranks 24th in the nation. They hold opponents to 34.7% shooting from the field making them one of the deadliest defenses in college basketball.

Butler is 3-1 to start the season but will be playing their first road game in this one. Butler enters Monday's game following a 73-52 home loss to Michigan State on Wednesday.

Against Michigan State, Ty Groce came off the bench to lead the Bulldogs with 15 points, eight rebounds and two steals. Guard Chuck Harris totaled 13 points with four assists and two rebounds.

The Bulldogs are led in scoring by Harris, who averages 15 points and 4 rebounds for Butler. They are scoring just 65.8 points per game and have faced weaker competition. They are shooting 42.8& from the field. 

The Cougars are 17-8 ATS in their last 25 neutral site games and are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games following a straight up win.

The under is 5-1 in Cougars last 6 games following a straight up win. The under is 4-0 in Bulldogs last 4 overall and is 8-2-1 in Bulldogs last 11 games following a ATS loss. I like the under in this one as Houston will do the majority of the scoring. Butler will continue its struggles with putting the ball in the basket.

The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. I don’t think they will be able to keep this game within the spread. I’ll lay the points with the Houston Cougars.
