Butler Bulldogs – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

Midwest No. 9 Butler Bulldogs (Overall: 21-10, Conf: 10-8)

Team Strengths

The Butler Bulldogs are coming into the NCAA tournament hell-bent to do one thing—score. The Bulldogs are 22nd in the nation in scoring with 80.6 points per game. They have plenty of talent to let loose on the floor from Kellen Dunham (16.3 points per game), Kelan Martin (16.1) or Roosevelt Jones (14).

Team Weaknesses


Butler is a streaky team. Let them find their stroke, you’re in tough luck. But if you hinder them from finding a rhythm, then the game is all yours. This was most evident in Butler’s Big East tournament quarterfinal loss to Providence. They made just 21 of 58 field goal attempts (36.2 percent) in a 14-point loss.

Writer’s Prediction

Butler’s offense leads them to the Round of 32. But they won’t have much going to progress further than that point.
