Important to remember that the above consensus numbers are an early snapshot of public action. The Professional Handicappers League has a few professional consensus services for those looking for a consensus of expert sports picks. Personally, we like to know where the money goes early, especially looking for drastic early money on one side, which is often "smart money", whereas heavy action closer to game time is usually "square money".

COLLEGE BASKETBALL FREE PICK: BUTLER/SETON HALL

The Seton Hall Pirates is a team we have a pretty strong read on and have had a lot of success betting or against. We have placed 16 documented premium wagers on Pirates games in the last decade, winning 13, next to just 3 for a winning rate of 81.30% and profits of $9780.00. We do not have a premium selection in this game today, but we do have a strong opinion.

Some of the factors we look at are the total points being scored by both teams, which is 158.4. Together, the teams average 145.4 points allowed, which gives us expected total points of 151.9, which can be compared against the over/under offered by oddsmakers for those inclined to bet on totals.

To determine the game-winner and to consider the spread in a game we can look at point differential as well, but it is wise to weigh the power rating differential even more. In this game, which is considered "neutral", the power rating on the Seton Hall Pirates is 85.0 while the Butler Bulldogs bring a rating of 85.5, meaning, a reasonable line on this game for Seton Hall is 0.5.

Taking everything into consideration we do have a free pick opinion on this game.
