Butler Bulldogs vs Providence Friars 1/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Butler Bulldogs will meet with the #21 Providence Friars in a Big East Conference clash in Dunkin Donuts Center Providence, RI, on Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 12:00 PM (EST). This season, the Butler Bulldogs underperformed, going 9-9 overall and 2-5 in the Big East.

 

Butler is struggling of late, losing five of their past six matches. They struggled in a home-and-home series with UConn this week, dropping both games. The Huskies defeated them 76-59 at home on Tuesday, then 75-56 at Butler on Thursday. Essentially the same effect.

 

The offense struggled to find a rhythm in both games, shooting 30 percent on Tuesday and 38 percent on Thursday. That’s not going to cut it. Butler’s offense is abysmal, scoring only 62.1 points per game, enough for 341st in the country.

 

They only shoot 41% from the field, which ranks them 309th, and 31% from the 3-point range. The team is also 336th in rebounding. Butler’s defense is solid, allowing 64.9 ppg and allowing opponents to shoot 43% from the field and 32 percent from three.

 

Only one player, Chuck Harris, averages more than ten points each game, and he barely does so. Bryce Nze produces 8.4 points and a team-high 5.7 rebounds per game, and Aaron Thompson tops the team in assists with 3.9 per game to go along with his 7.5 ppg.

 

  • The University of Butler Bulldogs is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Butler is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 matches against Providence.
  • The Bulldogs are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches in the Big East Conference.

Butler Bulldogs vs Providence Friars Predictions 1/23/2022

 

Providence did not play many games in the new year. They had three consecutive games postponed due to COVID, but it didn’t stop them from burying Georgetown 83-75 when they finally competed on Thursday.

 

The Friars, who are ranked 21st in the country, are currently 15-2 overall and 5-1 in the Big East. Providence hit 9 of 19 shots from beyond the arc and shot 53% from the field. With 15 points each, Al Durham and Ed Croswell led the Friars. Noah Horchler chipped up with 14 points and seven rebounds.

 

Justin Minaya scored 9 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists to go along with Nick Watson’s 15 points. Jared Bynum led the club with 9 points and 8 assists. They were also without one of their top players, AJ Reeves, who has a finger injury and is uncertain for Sunday’s game. This box score demonstrates how well-balanced the Friars are.

 

Four players average double digits, with Watson leading the way with 13,8 ppg. Durham, Reeves, and Horchler all have double-digit scoring averages. The Friars average 70.5 ppg while shooting 44% from the field. They allow 64.2 ppg and limit opponents to a 40% shooting average.

 

  • The University of Providence Friars is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Providence’s last 7 matches against Butler.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Providence’s last 9 matches in the Big East Conference.

Butler Bulldogs vs #21 Providence Friars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #21 Providence Friars. This is a match between two teams that are going in different directions. Butler dropped five of its previous six matches, while Providence captured ten of its last eleven.

 

The Friars are 11-0 at home and have no chance of losing to a Butler club that is having trouble scoring points. They only score 60 points per game on average, and they only scored 52 points per game in their previous three defeats, two to UConn and one to Villanova.

 

Providence will dominate this game solely on defense, as they limit opponents to sub 40% shooting on average and will overpower the Bulldogs upfront. Here’s where Providence comes in to cover the spread. The Friars will win and cover the ATS predicted at 69-61.
