Marquette vs Butler Final NCAAB Betting Analysis
On paper, this should be a blowout. Basketball games aren’t played on paper, and that’s why the Butler Bulldogs should be taken very seriously to win and cover on Wednesday night.
Marquette has looked great, but they haven’t responded as well in road games as they have in home games this season. They could only beat Xavier by 5, 87-82, in their last on the road. In the road game before that, they only beat Georgetown by 3. In the away game before that, they needed overtime to take down Creighton.
Butler’s closer in talent to Marquette than many might believe. The Bulldogs should win this game straight up.
