Butler at Seton Hall odds, picks and prediction

The Butler Bulldogs (13-15, 6-11 Big East) meet the Seton Hall Pirates (16-9, 7-8) Wednesday at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Tip time is slated for 8:30 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Butler vs. Seton Hall odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

Butler gave then-No. 9 Providence a scare Sunday before falling 71-70 in overtime at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Bulldogs led by 19 early in the second half, but the visiting Friars came back to tie the game in regulation and win by 1 point in the extra session. BU now heads on the road, where it is 1-6 since Jan. 16.

The Pirates have struggled in Big East play after going 9-1 in non-conference games at the outset of the season. However, Seton Hall does boast a solid defense and strong offensive rebounding. SHU has held opposing fives at a 40.2% mark from the floor in going 6-2 over its last eight games.

Butler at Seton Hall odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Seton Hall 73, Butler 64

Money line

PASS.

Against the spread

Seton Hall is just 1-4 ATS over its last five home games.

Save for a clunker at St. John’s two games back, Butler has been quite good this month, although it doesn’t have the wins to show it. The Bulldogs are a relatively young team and could be growing into a better version of themselves before tournament season.

BACK THE BULLDOGS +9.5 (-112).

Over/Under

Butler plays a slow-paced game but is dragged into quicker tempos by superior teams. The Over is 8-1-1 in the Bulldogs’ last 10 games against opponents playing .600-or-better basketball.

Shot analytics and possession efficiency numbers peg the Butler offense as being due for an upswing.

TAKE THE OVER 129.5 (-107).
