Prediction

This is Butler’s game to lose. Dunham will pick and choose his spots, but essentially, he’ll have whatever he wants. Tennessee allows its opponents to shoot 40.4 percent from the field, and Dunham will exploit that. Punter and Moore won’t score enough to do any real damage, and the Bulldogs will pull away in the second half. Look for Martin to have a good game as a secondary scorer, but he’ll make just as many plays for his teammates as he will creating his own shot.
