Butler Bulldogs vs Providence Friars 1/25/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Butler Bulldogs will go against the #23 Providence Friars in NCAAB action in Amica Mutual Pavilion, RI, on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at 8:30 PM ET.


The Bulldogs dropped four of their previous five contests, including their defeats to Creighton and UConn last week. The team’s top scorer, rebounder, and shot blocker, senior center Manny Bates, was absent for Butler.


Bates is listed as doubtful for Wednesday after missing the last three games due to a knee issue. Butler is now only ahead of Georgetown in the Big East rankings with a record of 3-7.


Butler wants exact revenge for its home defeat by Providence in December. In that contest, the Bulldogs shot 35%, including just 2-of-16 (12%) from beyond the arc. The Friars outrebounded them 39 to 28.


Bulldogs are finding it difficult to replace Bates’ output. In the last two games, they only managed to score 52 and 56 points, and in those contests, they were outrebounded by 22 and 25 rebounds.


Bates’ defensive presence was also missed; he ranks fourth in the Big East with 1.9 shot blocks per game. Butler’s scoring offense, which averages 69.0 points per game in the Big East, is ranked 10th.


Although the Bulldogs don’t shoot many three-pointers, they do make them at a rate that is second in the conference (35.5%). They manage the basketball fairly well, with just 11.8 turnovers per game on average.


They have the fourth-lowest turnover margin in the Big East (+1.30).


  • The total stayed UNDER in 7 of Butler’s last 10 matches. 
  • The Bulldogs are 1-4 SU in their last 5 contests. 
  • The Butler Bulldogs are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games with the Providence Friars.

Butler Bulldogs vs Providence Friars Predictions 1/25/2023


The Friars recently suffered two straight losses on the road at Creighton and No. 20 Marquette, but on Saturday they defeated DePaul at home by a score of 75-64.


In the victory, sophomore forward Bryce Hopkins recorded his eighth double-double of the year with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while senior guard Noah Locke made seven three-pointers and scored a career-high 29 points.


The Xavier Musketeers continue to lead the Big East, with Providence trailing by one game.


Hopkins leads Providence in both scoring and rebounding with averages of 16.5 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, which places second in the Big East. Five players for the Friars average more than 9 points each contest.


The Bulldogs held Hopkins in check while Providence defeated Butler earlier this year. He only managed six points and eight rebounds, both season lows. 


  • The total remained UNDER in 5 of Providence’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Providence Friars are 10-2 SU in their last 12 matches. 
  • The Friars are 13-0 SU in their last 13 matches at home.

Butler Bulldogs vs #23 Providence Friars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #23 Providence Friars. Bryce Hopkins, a double-double machine for Providence, must be drooling in anticipation of this contest.


The Bulldogs just suffered horrendous losses to Creighton and UConn on the offensive glass, while the Friars are the top rebounding club in the Big East.


Although Bynum may miss Providence’s fifth game, the fact that Locke just had a career-high 29-point performance tells me the Friars will be able to fill the guard position without Bynum.


Providence, meanwhile, won eight of its previous ten games. The #23 Providence Friars will win to a predicted score of 75-64.
