While not quite a landslide, the contest between Butler and the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Butler wrapped it up with an 80-66 win at home. Guard Chuck Harris took over for Butler, finishing with 32 points (a whopping 40% of their total) in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, Yale didn't have too much breathing room in their game with the Stony Brook Seawolves this past Saturday, but they still walked away with a 77-72 victory.
Butler is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Butler is now 6-3 while Yale sits at 8-1. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Butler comes into the matchup boasting the 21st highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 49.70%. But Yale have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 35.60%, which places them ninth in college basketball. We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.
