NCAAB best bets: Saturday, 13 January

ANOTHER 1-1 split in NCAAB action has stopped us from gaining momentum but we’ll keep grinding and working hard to find winning plays.

Here’s our best bets for the action ahead:

Marquette @ Butler

This is a great bounce back spot for Butler as they return home looking to snap a three game skid.

The Bulldogs haven’t won since their big upset over Villanova on New Year’s Eve (AEDT) but have played all three straight on the road.

They now return home where they’re 7-2 against the spread, and face a Marquette team that has covered just once in its last 10 meetings with the Bulldogs.

While the Golden Eagles were impressive offensively in their loss to Villanova we don’t see them replicating those feats here, and our projections have them finishing under 73 points.

Butler is shooting at almost 55% on its home court this season while averagingĀ 88.0 point per game in the process.

They’ve restricted visiting teams to justĀ 68.3 points per game during that run and while Marquette possess an entirely different challenge to what they’ve faced we do project them to cover this number.

Tip: Butler Bulldogs -4.5 @ $1.85 (TopBetta)
