Georgetown Hoyas (14-10; 12-9 ATS; 10-11 O/U) vs. Butler Bulldogs (17-9; 13-12 ATS; 15-10 O/U)

The Butler Bulldogs will look to get back on track when they host the Georgetown Hoyas in a Big East battle Tuesday evening from the Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Hoyas edged Seton Hall by an 83-80 score in their latest action, and the Bulldogs dropped an 86-75 decision to Villanova on Saturday. Butler edged Georgetown 91-89 in overtime in the first meeting this season.

Hoyas Notch Upset Win Against Seton Hall

The Georgetown Hoyas snapped out of their slump by recording an 83-80 home win over Seton Hall on Saturday to bring their Big East record to 4-9. The Hoyas converted on 51% of their field goals, and limited Seton Hall to a 45% clip. Marcus Derrickson was spectacular in the winning effort, recording 22 points along with a whopping 18 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season. The junior forward has scored at least 17 points in five of his last six games and is currently averaging 15.8 points on a 50% field goal percentage. Hoyas’ leading scorer Jessie Govan chipped in with 11 points and seven rebounds in Saturday’s win. The junior center has been inconsistent at times in conference play, however overall he is having a terrific season, averaging 16.7 points and 10 rebounds per game.

The Hoyas snapped a four game losing streak in Saturday’s win. They did recently take #6 Xavier to overtime and they have been competitive as of late. Georgetown’s possesses a 2-5 road record in conference play, and are positioned at 94th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. They are averaging a solid 78.4 points per game, ranking them 68th overall. The Hoyas are allowing an average of 73.9 points, placing them 225th overall.

Kelan Martin Scores 30 in loss to Villanova

The Butler Bulldogs could not complete the season series sweep against Villanova after falling 86-75 to their rivals on Saturday to drop to 7-6 in Big East play. The Bulldogs only posted a 43.5% clip from the field, while Villanova was able to sink 51% of their shots. Bulldogs’ leading scorer Kelan Martin was outstanding in the losing cause, collecting 30 points on a 10 for 20 mark from the field. The senior forward is on a roll, scoring at least 26 points in three consecutive games, and is now up to 20.7 points on 45% shooting. Kamar Baldwin also had a productive afternoon in the loss to Villanova, posting 25 points on 8 for 14 shooting. The sophomore guard has scored 16 or fewer points in five out of his last six games and is second in team scoring with 16 points per game.

The Bulldogs have lost two straight which included a tough 98-83 overtime loss to #5 Xavier. They have been very competitive on most nights in Big East action, and sit in fifth place in the conference standings. Butler is not ranked in the Top 25, however, they are placed at 20th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s rankings. They are averaging 80.2 points per game, good for 47th in the country. The Bulldogs are conceding an average of 72.2 points, placing them 170th overall.

Trends:

The Georgetown Hoyas are:

  • 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games.

The Butler Bulldogs are:

  • 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games.
  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record.

I am taking the points with Georgetown in this contest. Georgetown has been very competitive as of late, going 4-0 ATS in their last four games which included a narrow loss to Xavier and a win against Seton Hall. They are averaging a solid 81 points in their last six games, and are up against a subpar Butler defense. Furthermore, the Hoyas are holding opponents to 42% shooting, and they defend the three well, so they should be able to contain the Bulldogs scoring. Georgetown took Butler to OT in a 91-89 loss in the first meeting, and they should keep this one close.
