Butler Bulldogs at Creighton Bluejays 1/25/19 College Basketball Pick

The Bluejays have not been playing at the same level you would expect from Creighton on the season as the team has amassed 8 losses on the season overall, but when it comes to playing in the Big East the Bluejays have really struggled as they have only won 2 games and lost 4. What is even worse for the Bluejays is the losses have not really been close in conference play. For Butler, they are going to have a chance to come into the game here and actually have a good chance of winning as they already beat Creighton once this season. TheBulldogs have also been able to carry a decent record overall with 13 wins and only 8 losses, but the Big East has been a challenging time for the Bulldogs as well with 4 losses, but the Bulldogs have managed to get 3 wins.

Butler has managed to pick up a great win over Creighton in the first meeting between these two teams.

My Free College Basketball Pick: Butler Bulldogs +2.5

I have to say I like the Bluejays chances in this game, but the Bulldogs took the Villanova squad to the limit in the last game and the Wildcats are a markedly better team than the Bluejays. What else will help the Bulldogs out is the defense that has to show up in this game for the Bulldogs to have a chance. Look for the Bulldogs defense to actually show up in the game and help contain the Blueays offense that can light up the scoreboard and make them struggle in the game here. Final Score I see the Butler Bulldogs winning in a dog fight 74-70.
