The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated an impressive profit of over $2,400 for $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows Butler creates free throws at an above-average rate on offense, adding to overall efficiency. From there, the Bulldogs are above-average on the defensive end, giving up less than a point per possession. Butler creates a turnover on 19.0 percent of defensive possessions, an above-average rate, and the Bulldogs secure 71.9 percent of available defensive rebounds. Opponents are also shooting just 33.0 percent from three-point range, and Butler is able to contest shots on the perimeter at a high level.

The model also knows Providence is strongly above the national average in adjusted offensive efficiency. The Friars are in the top five nationally in free throw rate, using the charity stripe as an effective weapon.
