Kansas St. and Butler meet in an Elite Eight clash for the right to go the Final Four. Butler is looking to continue their Cinderella season and play in front of their home fans in the Final Four in a game that will be shown on CBS at 4:30 Eastern Saturday.

It's been a banner year for Kansas St. this year, so it's only fitting that they are one win away from their first Final Four in 46 years. Kansas St. beat Xavier both SU and ATS in an epic double overtime game, keeping their dreams alive for a school 1st National Championship. The Wildcats are 29-7 SU and 20-9-2 ATS overall this season. The Wildcats are 15-4 SU and 12-6-1 ATS away from home this season, including 8-2 SU in neutral court contests. Kansas St. is 14-3-1 ATS as a single digit favorite this season. The Wildcats have had the same exact SU and ATS result in each of their past 11 games. Kansas St. plays their best basketball against their toughest opponents, going 17-6 ATS against teams with a winning record this season. G Jacob Pullen is coming off a game in which he scored 28 PTS, including 6 timely 3-pointers. Pullen lead the Wildcats this season in scoring, averaging 19.5 PPG. Their star PG Denis Clemente averaged 16.5 PPG and a team high

4.2 APG this season. This Wildcats offense is nearly unstoppable right now, as they've scored more than 80 PTS in 6 of their past 7 games.

Some important Butler vs. Kansas State odds trends to consider include the following:

The Wildcats are 8-0-1 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games. The over is 6-2 in their last 8 neutral site games as the listed favorite. Guard Justin Werner is the only Wildcats player that has been ruled out for today's contest.  The Bulldogs are just 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games.

Butler is 1 win away from literally a dream scenario. If they can beat Kansas St. they will play in the Final Four in their home town. Butler beat #1 seed Syracuse, thanks to a very strong opening start. Ironically, the Bulldogs had come from behind in their 1st two games in the NCAA Tournament. You can never count out Butler when they fall behind, as they are 9-3 SU when trailing at the half. The Bulldogs have now won 23 consecutive games SU, and have set a school record for wins in a season with 31. Butler is 31-4 SU and 15-20 ATS overall this season. Butler is 16-4 SU and 9-11 ATS away from home this season, including 4-3 SU in neutral court games. The Bulldogs are 3-3 ATS as the listed underdog this season. Today will mark the 1st time this entire season that Butler was the listed underdog in consecutive games. Butler dominated conference play, as they went a perfect 20-0 SU in the Horizon League. Butler did play a tough non conference schedule

though, playing against the likes of Ohio St, Xavier, Georgetown, Clemson, and Minnesota. F Gordon Hayward is 1 of 4 Bulldogs averaging double figures in PTS, averaging a team high 15.3 PPG. The Bulldogs have held 10 of their past 11 opponents under 60 PTS.

The Bulldogs are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 neutral site games as the listed underdog. The under is 7-1 in their last 8 games overall. Butler is as healthy as they have been all year, no small feat consider the rigors of their season.

Pregame.com projects the final score to be 65-63 in favor of the Kansas St. Wildcats. The UNDER 135 Points is the Total of the Day!
