Providence Team Preview

The Providence Friars come into this one looking to build on a 91-87 OT win over Creighton last time out. Devin Carter leads the Friars with 19 PPG and 3.5 APG along with 8 RPG while Bryce Hopkins has 15.5 PPG with 8.6 RPG in 14 games so far this season. Josh Oduro has 15.9 PPG with 7.3 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Providence so far this year while Davonte Gaines has 8.9 PPG and 4.5 RPG and Jayden Pierre has 9 PPG with 3.2 APG as well on the year. As a team, Providence is averaging 73.5 PPG on 45.4% shooting from the field, 32% from three and 70.3% from the foul line this season.

Butler Team Preview

The Butler Bulldogs come into this one looking to rebound from a 71-62 loss to UConn last time out. Pierre Brooks leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 16 PPG and 4.4 RPG while Jahmyl Telfort has 14.5 PPG with 4.7 RPG and 2.8 APG and DJ Davis has 14.3 PPG with 3 RPG and 2.3 APG as well this season. Posh Alexander has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 5.1 APG to lead the Bulldogs in assists while also capping off the scoring in double figures for Butler up to this point in the year. Jalen Thomas also has a team-high 6.5 RPG to lead the Bulldogs on the glass this season. As a team, Butler is averaging 80.7 PPG on 45.9% shooting from the field, 36% from three and 79.1% from the foul line this season.

Providence vs. Butler Prediction

I’m leaning towards Butler here. The Bulldogs have been solid on the road, but this is a reasonable number for Butler, who’s been playing some of their best basketball of the season over the last couple of weeks and have beaten and covered against some tough customers. Providence I think is in for a letdown after their big win over Creighton and I think the Bulldogs take advantage here. Give me Butler.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
