In the last game against Creighton, the defense was strong giving up 64 points per game. Xavier is averaging 73.8 points while their defense is giving up 64.3 points per game. Jack Nunge has been the top player for Xavier averaging 12.6 points while shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

Xavier is 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games. Butler is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games played on Wednesday. The under is 4-0 in the Musketeers last four games. The over is 4-1-1 in Butler’s last six games overall. The under is 5-1 in Xavier’s last six games played on Wednesday. 

Butler isn’t a strong offensive team, and they are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for the pace of this game to also be slow, and that will lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under to cash. In terms of the side it's a lean to Xavier to cover the spread.
