Southeast Region: Butler Bulldogs (8) vs. Pittsburgh Panthers (1) Sat. March 19, 2011 7:10 p.m. EST

The Pittsburgh Panthers (1) were one of the last high seeds in the 2011 NCAA Tournament to find out who their first opponent would be. Even though it took awhile for the Pittsburgh Panthers (1) to be matched up with the North Carolina-Asheville Bulldogs (16), it really didn’t matter who the beasts from the Big East would face as they would advance regardless. As of one of the best teams left in the tournament, the Panthers have a great chance of going the distance, but they might have a challenge ahead of them in the form of the Butler Bulldogs (8).

Make this March Madness a winning one with guaranteed winning picks and predictions from SportsPicksKing!

With the Bulldogs reputation for pulling off upsets last year and just recently against the Old Dominion Monarchs, Pittsburgh could have their hands full with a team that thrives in pressure situation like these and excels when labeled the underdogs. Obviously, with how well the Panthers have played all season long and in their first matchup of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the Bulldogs will be the underdogs once again.

As of right now, the Pittsburgh Panthers (1) have been given the edge in this third round matchup with a -8 point spread. Even though it is hard to count out the Butler Bulldogs (8), I believe the Panthers should get the win and advance to the Sweet Sixteen.
