Florida vs. Georgetown Free Pick
JACKSONVILLE, FL (ATS Consultants) - Two traditionally strong programs open the season on a 844-foot battleship. Florida takes on Georgetown from the USS Bataan in Jacksonville, Fla. at 9pmET in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic.
LINE MOVEMENT: The Florida opened as a 4-point favorite and moved to 5.5 in most books. The total started at 125.5 and moved to 125 in most books.
NCAA FREE PICK: Take Florida. According to the latest college basketball trends, the Gators are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. Big East. Florida should win this game with ease despite missing point guard Scottie Wilbekin, who is suspended indefinitely. That's because they have depth. The Gators have won 21 consecutive season openers. Georgetown was picked to finish fifth in the Big East preseason coaches' poll after losing seniors Jason Clark and Henry Sims, along with early departing junior Hollis Thompson. They were the team's three leading scorers last season, accounting for 38.4 points per game, 56 percent of the Hoyas' output. Florida's top scorer Kenny Boynton is back looking to help the Gators improve upon last season's 26-11 mark.
