Marquette is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The under is 5-2 in Marquette’s last 7 games. Butler is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Butler’s last 5 home games. The road team is 5-2 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Marquette was on a really solid run in conference play, but lost to Uconn and Providence in two of their last three games. Butler has not been good this season, but has been able to stay competitive in games. Marquette has more talent and Butler really struggles to score. I like the Golden Eagles here.
