-The Plugs Game Preview-


  • Creighton comes into this matchup on a two game winning streak, but their defense has been an issue in recent games. Butler has lost two of their last three games, but the losses came against the top two teams in the Big East. The Bulldogs did beat Creighton by a score of 99-98 in these two teams first meeting of the season, and they will have the home court advantage for this matchup. Both teams are scoring over 80 points per game and I think we are going to see another high scoring game. Take the over here.
