Gonzaga favored big over Butler Tuesday

BUTLER BULLDOGS (5-6)

at GONZAGA BULLDOGS (7-2)


Tip-off: Tuesday, 9:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Gonzaga -12.5, Total: 134

Butler continues its early-season gauntlet when it travels across the country to play Gonzaga Tuesday night.

Butler has already played three true road games as well as home games against two top-10 opponents. But while the Bulldogs’ record isn’t good, they play the kind of slow-tempo game to keep this close, especially because Gonzaga hasn’t overwhelmed teams at home. In five games in Spokane, the Zags have only won by double-digits once, and that was against a shorthanded (and bad even at full strength) Notre Dame team. Last week they beat an Oral Roberts squad (that’s similar to Butler) by only six points at home. BUTLER is the pick to keep the score under 10.

The FoxSheets have a three-star trend working in Butler’s favor:

Play On - A road team (BUTLER) - terrible shooting team (<=40%) against an average defensive team (42.5-45%). (172-93 over the last 5 seasons.) (64.9%, +69.7 units. Rating = 3*).

After a shaky start to the season, especially on the offensive end, Butler may have turned the corner with Saturday’s win over Purdue. The Bulldogs trailed by as many as 12 in the second half, but finished the game on a 12-1 run and won it 67-65 on Andrew Smith’s tip-in with one second left. They have shot the ball horribly all season, shooting 39% from the field and 29% from three. But they made 45% of their shots against the Boilermakers, including 7-for-16 from three. SG Chase Stigall came off the bench to shoot 3-for-6 from three, finishing with 11 points. Freshman SF Kameron Woods added 12 points, including two threes, off the bench. Smith also had one of his better games of the year, getting 12 points and six rebounds (four offensive) in just 22 minutes of action.

On the year, only Khyle Marshall (10.4 PPG) and Smith (10.1 PPG) average double-digit points for Butler. But the Bulldogs allow only 64.0 PPG, 42% shooting from the field and 31% from three.

Gonzaga is coming off a nice win over Arizona, 71-60 in Seattle. Junior F Elias Harris had one of the best games of his career, going for 25 points and eight rebounds. He and 7-foot, 260-pound C Robert Sacre (14.9 PPG, 7.2 RPG) should be too much for the Butler’s frontcourt to handle. One potential trouble spot is the recent shooting of freshman PG Kevin Pangos (13.1 PPG). After shooting 12-for-19 from three over the first three games of the season, he’s hit 7-of-31 (23%) since then, including 0-for-5 in the Arizona win.

Blackhawks seek 6th straight win facing Pens

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS (21-8-4, 46 points)

at PITTSBURGH PENGUINS (18-11-4, 40 points)


Puck drops: Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. EDT
Line: Chicago -125, Pittsburgh +105, Total: 5.5

With Sidney Crosby out with recurring concussion symptoms for the second time this season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are struggling to win with consistency. And unfortunately, things won’t get much easier for the Pens when they host red-hot Chicago on Tuesday.

This will be the Blackhawks’ first visit to the Consol Energy Center since the arena opened last year. Chicago won last season’s matchup between the 2009 and 2010 Stanley Cup Champions at the United Center 3-2 in a shootout, and each of the past three meetings have gone into overtime. The streaking Blackhawks lead the NHL in points with 46 after winning seven of their past eight games, including five straight. It also looks as though the Hawks have a new number one netminder in Ray Emery (9-1-2, 2.50 GAA, .909 SV Pct.)—who has been between the pipes for six of the seven aforementioned wins. The Penguins are coming off a dominant 8-3 win over Buffalo on Saturday, but are just 2-3-0 since Crosby left the lineup. Over the past 15 games, the Penguins are an unimpressive 7-7-1. During that stretch, their wins have come against teams with a combined points percentage (NHL’s version of win percentage) of .475, while their loses have come against teams with a combined percentage of .626. This large discrepancy tells us that Pittsburgh racks up points by beating the weaker teams, but struggles mightily against elite competition. With these statistics in mind, CHICAGO, as the best team in the NHL, is a strong play in this game.

This FoxSheets also sides with the Blackhawks:

CHICAGO is 38-11 ATS (77.6%, +21.2 Units) off a home win scoring 4 or more goals over the last 3 seasons. The average score was CHICAGO 3.8, OPPONENT 2.4 - (Rating = 2*).

The Blackhawks feature one of the league’s deepest and most balanced offensive attacks, with four skaters eclipsing the 30-point mark—more than any other team. RW Marian Hossa (15 G, 21 A) leads all scorers, and team captain C Jonathan Toews (18 G, 17 A) is an early candidate for league MVP. C Patrick Sharp (17 G, 18 A) and LW Patrick Kane (9 G, 23 A) round out Chicago’s lethal top four.

Defenseman Duncan Keith (2 G, 19 A) anchors the Hawks’ blue line, but may be without his partner Brent Seabrook (75 blocked shots), who is listed as day-to-day with an upper body injury. Emery—who boasts the lowest GAA in the NHL in the month of December—will make his sixth consecutive start for the Hawks.

Even without Crosby, the Penguins still have great depth on offense, led by C Evgeni Malkin (15 G, 21 A) and LW James Neal (18 G, 14 A). The 24-year-old Neal—who came to Pittsburgh at last year’s trade deadline—has had a breakout season playing alongside Malkin.

Injuries have really hampered the Pens this month, with two of their top defensemen— Kris Letang (3 G, 16 A) and Zbynek Michalek both sidelined with concussions. C Jordan Staal (12 G, 6 A) is a game-time decision with a lower body injury. G Marc-Andre Fleury (16-7-2, 2.31 GAA, .914 SV Pct.) will get the start for Pittsburgh. Fleury is 3-1-0 in six career starts against Chicago.

Armadillo's Write-Up

Tuesday, December 20

Keep in mind that first semester just ended at most colleges, so transfers are becoming eligible in some places, making things a little trickier......

St Bonaventure is 1-3 vs top 100 teams, losing by 3-9-5 points, one of which was 73-64 loss to ACC's Virginia Tech; their best win is over #82 Buffalo. Five of NC State's six wins are vs teams ranked #131 or lower; their only top 100 win was over Texas, game they trailed by 18. Atlantic 14 home teams are 6-3-1 vs spread in games where number is 4 or less points; ACC teams are 11-18 against spread when number is less than 5.

Evansville is 0-2 on road, losing by 4 at Ill-Chicago, 49 at Chapel Hill; Purple Aces are 3-5 vs D-I teams, with only win vs team in top 300 at home in OT vs #120 Butler. Miami O is 2-5 vs D-I teams but both wins are over top 75 teams, Dayton/Belmont- they're 0-3 vs teams ranked lower than #200. Go figure. MAC home faves of less than 9 points are 7-1-1 vs spread; MVC road underdogs of 7 or less points are 11-7.

Home team won last six Old Dominion-Richmond games; Monarchs lost last three visits here by 3-6-7 points. ODU lost four of last six games, as they're shooting just 26.3% behind arc, 64.9% from line. Richmond lost last three games, allowing 80 ppg; they're 0-5 vs teams ranked in the top 125 (ODU is #122). Atlantic 14 home favorites of 7 or less points are 11-2 vs spread; CAA road underdogs of 7 or less points are 2-14.

7-3 VCU won its last four games, all by 15+ points; they're #5 in nation forcing turnovers (28.4% of possessions); Rams lost 68-65 at UAB LY. Blazers are 2-6 this season, have been off for 13 days since upsetting a pretty good Middle Tennessee team in last game. UAB is 0-3 on road, losing by 22-8-9 points. CAA home favorites are 7-11 vs spread, 2-3 if spread is double digits; Conference USA double digit road dogs are 7-2.

Ohio U/Northern Iowa are both 9-1, so this is Bracket Buster type tilt with two teams who will make noise in March. Bobcats' only loss was by 5 at Louisville; their other top 100 game was impressive 70-68 win at Matshall. Ohio won its last four road games. UNI's best win was at #79 Iowa State; they also beat #85 Milwaukee. MAC road underdogs of 6 or less points are 2-7 vs spread; MVC home favorites of 7 or less are 4-8.

Northeastern is 3-5, scoring 60 ppg in losing last four games, but #263 Louisiana Tech will be worst team they've played; Huskies are turning ball over 27.3% of time (#340), its hard to win when you don't get shots at basket. Tech won four of last five games; five of their last six games were won by 3 or less points. CAA road teams are 6-11 vs spread if number is 4 or less; WAC home teams are 3-7 if spread is 5 or less.

BYU is 7-3 vs D-I teams, with all seven wins by 14+ points, but they lost to only two top 100 teams they've played (Wisconsin/Baylor); they got lift in last game from UCLA transfer Carlino, a lefty guard who can shoot it. Buffalo is 1-1 vs top 100 teams, winning by 29 at Dayton, but losing at home by 6 to St Bonaventure. MAC road underdogs of 7+ points are 18-9-1 vs spread. WCC double digit home favorites are 6-6-1.

Gonzaga just beat Arizona by 11, its 5th game in row vs a top 70 team; Zags are 3-0 vs teams not ranked in top 100, winning by 8-19-20 points. Butler just upset Purdue, snapping 4-game skid vs D-I teams; Bulldogs are shooting just 26.3% behind arc. Butler has three losses by 12+, two in OT, another by three points. Horizon double digit road underdogs are 7-8-1 vs spread; WCC double digit home favorites are 6-6-1 vs spread.

Former Bradley coach/NBA player Les is off to 0-9 start at UC-Davis, with one win vs non-D-I team; Aggies' last four losses are all by 13 or more points. San Jose State is 2-7 vs D-I teams, with loss to Montana State (#290) so not lot to choose from here. Spartans make just 35.9% of 2-point shots, 2nd-worst in country. WAC single digit home favorites are 3-11 vs spread; Big West road underdogs of 8 or less points are 8-2.

0-10 Towson State might be worst team in country, turning ball over an amazing 31.7% of possessions- six of their seven losses vs teams in top 150 were by 17+ points. Manhattan is 5-0 vs teams not in top 200, with four wins by 14+ points. Jaspers turn ball over a lot too (25.9%, #327) but they won last two road games, by 16 at Rider, 9 at Hofstra. CAA home dogs are 3-6 vs spread; MAAC favorites are 5-9, 3-4 on the road.

Young Charleston team is 9-1, winning only road game at Clemson by 3; their only loss was to Central Florida by 11 on neutral floor. Louisville has played only one road game so far, winning at Butler; they've won six games vs teams in top 120. Southern Conference road underdogs of 15+ points are 8-5 vs spread; Big East home faves of 12+ points are 10-21-1 vs spread. Cougars have only one senior in their rotation. Louisville is off wild 95-87 home win over Memphis Saturday.

#26 St Mary's has games vs Baylor/Missouri State Thursday/Friday, so easy to look past Eastern Washington here; Gaels are 9-1 against #321 schedule, 3-1 vs teams in top 200, with wins by 5-17-16 points. Eagles foul more than any team in country; they've lost last three games vs D-I opponents, by 26-15-13 points. Big Sky road underdogs of 13+ points are 11-5 vs spread; WCC double digit home favorites are 6-6-1.

Arizona is coming off loss at Gonzaga, when they fell behind 14-0 right off bat; Wildcats are 3-4 in last seven games, even losing a home game to San Diego State. #126 Oakland is 0-4 vs top 100 teams, losing by 17-23-2-10 points; they're more of an offensive team, playing fast, #6 tempo in country. At #45, Arizona is 3rd-ranked Pac-12 team, whcih is bad; they need all the wins they can get to solidify their RPI for March. Pac-12 double digit home favorites are 14-18 vs spread.

Charleston Cougars at Louisville Cardinals (-16, 138.5)

Louisville passed another major test over the weekend when it outlasted Memphis 95-87. The fourth-ranked Cardinals have spread the points around as coach Rick Pitino continues to get pieces back from injury to add to his rotation.

Russ Smith led the way with a career-high 24 points Saturday but it was his seven steals that made more impact in Louisville’s pressure defense and transition offense.

The next school to take a crack at the Cardinals in the Yum! Center will be College of Charleston on Tuesday. A perennial contender for the Southern Conference’s automatic NCAA Tournament bid, the Cougars have won six straight since their lone loss and are averaging nearly 75 points.

They might be a little over their heads here though.

Pick: Cardinals


Eastern Kentucky Colonels at Arkansas Razorbacks (-12.5, 132.5)

Eastern Kentucky has won four consecutive games, including a 59-53 win over Jacksonville State. The Colonels’ top three scorers lived up to that label as Jaron Jones, Eric Stutz and Joshua Jones combined for 48 points and 15-of-26 shooting (58 percent).

Jaron Jones, a senior guard, and Stutz, a freshman forward, haven’t been missing many shots. Jones and Stutz are both hitting 56 percent of their shots, and as a team the Colonels are shooting 44 percent from the field. Junior guard Mike DiNunno is averaging 3.3 assists and chips in with 9.5 points.

That has the Colonels at 4-2 against the spread in the six games that they’ve seen a line.

Razorbacks supporters haven’t been nearly as lucky. Arkansas managed to down Southeast Louisiana 62-55, but the club is 0-3 against the number this season.

Pick: Colonels
