Why Bet on the Marquette Golden Eagles?

Before the season started, nobody expected the Golden Eagles to send the best team in the Big East to the court. Marquette is 2-games better than 21-8 Providence and 21-8 Xavier. Because Marquette ranks sixth heading into this, we must expect the Eagles to play great ball.

Marquette knows that a loss to Butler ends any hope of a 1-seed. But if the Golden Eagles win, and if they take the Big East Tournament, it’s going to be difficult for the Selection Committee to keep Marquette from a coveted 1.

Why Bet on the Butler Bulldogs?

2022-2023 hasn’t been a great season for the Butler Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are 14-15 and in 9 th place in the conference. But although Butler won’t make the NCAA Tournament unless they win the Big East Tournament, the Bulldogs are playing decent ball.

Five games ago, Butler upset St. John’s. Four games ago, the Bulldogs upset Xavier. In their last, Butler beat DePaul. Also, this happens on Butler’s floor.

Marquette vs. Butler Betting Trends

  • Marquette is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
  • Golden Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss.
  • Over is 14-3 in Marquette’s last 17 on a Tuesday.
  • Butler is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win.
  • Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
  • Under is 5-0 in the Bulldogs’ last 5 home games.

Marquette vs. Butler Expert Prediction

The reason to like the Bulldogs against the spread is that in the last head-to-head, Marquette won by just 8 points.

Ah, but the trends paint a different story than some of the things listed above. For starters, Butler isn’t covering a lot of games. The Bulldogs are 3-7 ATS at home versus winning SU teams. On Tuesday night, Butler faces the top straight up squad in the conference.

Marquette is peaking at the right time. Yes, there’s a chance the Golden Eagles fail versus Butler. But there’s as much of a chance of Marquette continuing their dominant play. The Golden Eagles prevail SU and ATS.
