The Butler vs. Villanova betting line was coming in at Wildcats -13 after opening at -12. This one will be shown on FS1 at 7 pm ET.
Butler (1-0) has been forced to pause its basketball program due to Covid-19 positives for the better part of a month. Butler said the positive test was detected after its season-opening win over Western Michigan. This resulted in games against Eastern Illinois, Northern Kentucky, St. John’s and DePaul being postponed.
Collin Gillespie and Caleb Daniels each hit five 3-pointers and scored 18 points to lead No. 9 Villanova past Georgetown 76-63 on Friday night in the Big East opener for both teams.
The Wildcats (5-1) trailed by 18 early in the first half at Georgetown’s empty on-campus gym — a surprising deficit considering Villanova entered as 11.5-point road favorites — until they got 3-point happy and showed again why they are the team to beat in the Big East.
“It was really weird playing Georgetown in this gym with no fans,” coach Jay Wright said. “This is one game you just know is always going to be a huge a crowd. It was really strange. But once the ball went up, it was a typical Big East battle.”
