Point Spread: -9.00 | -106.00 St. John's (Home)
Red Storm (-) over Bulldogs- Is this the same St. John's team that opened Big East play 0-5 and now are a nine-point favorite at Madison Square Garden as they have won eight of nine since.. Somehow, Steve Lavin got an unruly group to 'buy-in' and they are knocking on the NCAA Tournament door. Butler meanwhile is heading in the opposite direction as they have lost their last four and have dropped below .500. Butler's first Big East season has exposed an offense that is last in conference scoring at 69.8 points per game. Lay the wood...take ST. JOHN'S!
