@SidekicksPicks College Basketball Play of the Day - 3/10

Butler (14-18) vs. Providence (24-4)

The Butler Bulldogs take on the Big East champs, the Providence Friars for a 12:00 pm tip! Butler just upset Xavier yesterday in round 1 of the Big East tournament. The Bulldogs are 14-18 overall, 6-14 in conference play. Butler is 1-5 in their last 6 games and are 2-3 on a neutral court this season.

The Friars lost their last game of the regular season to Villanova, but were on 3 game winning streak prior to that last. They finished the season with a 24-4 record, 14-3 in conference. These two teams faced off during the season and Providence came out on top both times. Their last win against Butler was a 71-70 overtime victory at Butler, which is a difficult place to play.

Betting Trends

  • Bulldogs are 4-1 ats in their last 5 games
  • Bulldogs are 1-4 in their last 5 games vs Providence
  • Friars are 10-0 in their last 10 games as the favorite

Sidekick's Verdict

This Providence team is a tough grind it out team that ranks top 100 in every defensive statistical category. I think they handle this Butler team that has struggled to find any consistency this season. Providence will also most likely bring back a well rested Aljami Durham, who was missed in their last outing vs Villanova.

Miami RedHawks (14-17) vs. Kent St (21-9)

The Miami (OH) RedHawks take on the Kent St Golden Flashes for a 4:00 pm tip! The RedHawk finished the season with an overall record of 14-17, 8-12 conference. They are currently on a 2 game winning streak, which was against the bottom feeders of the MAC. They are 2-3 in their last 5 games.

The Kent St. Golden Flashes are one of the hottest teams in the country right now, and my sleeper pick to win the MAC conference. They finished the season with a 21-9 overall record, 16-4 conference. Kent St has won 12 games in a row, beating Buffalo, Ohio, and Toledo twice! They should easily handle this Miami team who has been below average all season.

Betting Trends

  • RedHawks are 4-15 ats in their last 19 games
  • RedHawks are 1-4-1 ats in their last 6 games vs Kent St
  • RedHawks are 1-6 in their last 7 games vs Kent St
  • Golden Flashes are 9-1-1 ats in their last 11 games
  • Golden Flashes are 6-0 ats in their last 6 games vs the Easter Div of the MAC
  • Golden Flashes are 6-3 ats in their last 9 Thursday games

Sidekick's Verdict

Kent St is a far better team than Miami (OH) and should prove that today! Kent St is a top 50 defensive team in the country and should create issues all game for the RedHawks!
