CBB: Butler @ Wisconsin Milwaukee

Horizon League Championship
Butler @ Wisconsin Milwaukee
Tuesday, March 7, 2006 (ESPN - 9:00 ET)
Current Total: 128 ½

These teams usually play low scoring games against each other, and we expect more of the same tonight.These clubs met twice during the regular season this year and they combined for exactly 123 points in each contest. Moreover, there teams have averaged a combined 125.9 points in the last seven head-to-head meetings since 2003, with the UNDER going 4-1 in the games that had a posted total.

Yes Milwaukee prefers a more up tempo game as the Panthers are averaging 72.9 points per game for the year, but Butler has done an excellent job of controlling the pace against them and we have no reason to believe the same thing will not happen tonight.

Butler blew out Wisconsin Green Bay 73-51 on Saturday, but that combined total of 124 would be good enough to cash the UNDER here. More importantly, that game marked the third time in the last five games that the Bulldogs have allowed 64 points or less, and the second time in those five games that they held their opponent in the 50s. Given that this is actually a true road game in Milwaukee, we look for the Bulldogs to employ their slowdown tactics yet again tonight.
