Butler Bulldogs vs Xavier Musketeers 3/9/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Butler Bulldogs will go against the Xavier Musketeers in a Big East Conference First Round clash in Madison Square Garden, NY, on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at 4:30 PM (EST). This season is a roller coaster for the Butler Bulldogs. They were unstoppable in some matches and appeared to lose in others.

 

In this conference tournament, they are the ninth seed. The Bulldogs produced 63.1 points per game and shot 41.8 percent from the field on offense.

 

This is the country’s 296th lowest shooting percentage. When they have pressure in their faces, they have a hard time making shots. The Bulldogs have the 179th most efficient offense, according to KenPom.

 

They’ll try to score inside the paint by attacking the hoop. This season, they struggled from behind the arc. They are just completing 31% of their deep ball attempts. This year, they did not have much luck shooting the ball from distance.

 

In addition, the Bulldogs are generating only 11.1 assists per game as a team. They don’t move the ball around enough to allow the opposition defense to spread out. On the offensive end of the court, they would have greater success if they could swing the ball around the perimeter and find cutting or passing lanes.

 

This year, Butler underperformed at the free-throw line. Only 69.5 percent of their attempted shots in the charity stripe are converted. This made it difficult to remain in games throughout the year. If they hope to upset the Musketeers in the first round, they can’t waste these points.

 

  • The University of Butler Bulldogs is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 matches.
  • Butler is 4-12 SU in their last 16 matches this season.
  • The Bulldogs are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches in the Big East Conference.

Butler Bulldogs vs Xavier Musketeers Predictions 3/9/2022

 

This year, the Xavier Musketeers performed admirably. They are pretty good on the attacking end of the court this year. They average 73.7 points per game and shoot 44.5 percent from the field.

 

This is the country’s 153rd greatest shooting percentage. They can make shots from wherever on the court and will work together as a unit. They have the 40th most efficient offense, according to KenPom.

 

They are generating 14.6 assists per game as a result of their constant pushing of the ball forward and finding the open player cutting to the hoop. They are not particularly effective when shooting from beyond the three-point arc, making only 32.8 percent of their attempts.

 

This is the nation’s 232nd lowest three-point shooting percentage. When they drive the ball to the basket and score near the rim, they have a lot more success. Expect this offense to try to convert its steals into scores as well. They’ll rush the ball up the court and try to score before the opposing defense has a chance to set up.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Xavier’s last 8 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Xavier’s last 6 matches against Butler.
  • The Musketeers 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Big East Conference.
