Butler vs Villanova ATS Pick: Butler +6

Villanova stands a good chance to win after losing by seven points in January’s double-OT thriller. Butler is coming off back-to-back losses to ranked opponents.

The Wildcats have won three of their last four matchups. While I like Nova to get the win, Butler has shown they can compete with this squad. Bet online the Bulldogs to cover the 6-point spread.

Butler vs Villanova Best Prop Bet: DJ Davis Over 14.5 Points

Butler guard DJ Davis dropped 28 points the last time these two teams squared off. Keep in mind this was a double overtime matchup.

I still think Davis is due to get back on track as the Bulldogs guard has scored 12 or fewer points in his last two outings. He’s a great addition to your player prop picks for Tuesday.
