Butler vs. Georgetown Prediction

College Hoops Picks: Can Georgetown upset Butler as small home dog? 1/7/17

Can Georgetown upset Butler as a small home underdog today when the two Big East foes clash at noon ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Hoyas are 2-point home underdogs versus the Bulldogs after opening as a 4-point dog. As for the total, the number hit the board at 146 and that's where it currently sits at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.

BUTLER KEY TRENDS: The Bulldogs are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine conference games and are 9-3-1 against the number in their last 13 road games. They're also 18-7-2 at the betting window in their last 27 games overall, are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games coming off an ATS win, and are 13-3-1 against the number in their last 17 games when playing an opponent with a winning record.

GEORGETOWN KEY TRENDS: The Hoyas have failed to cover in 10 of their last 14 games overall and are just 3-9 at the betting window in their last 12 home games. They've stunk as an underdog as well, going 1-5 against the spread in their last six games as a dog and are winless at 0-4 against the number in their last four games as a home underdog. They're 0-4 at the window in their last four conference games as well.

OUR PREDICTION: The Bulldogs have owned this series at the window, covering in four of their last five games against the Hoyas. The road team has also had success, covering in four of the last five games that these two teams have played. Butler took down the top team in the nation in its previous game, a 66-58 win over Villanova on Wednesday, and just have to avoid a letdown today to cruise past Georgetown. The Bulldogs are leading the Big East in fewest turnovers per game and I figure Kelan Martin, Tyler Lewis and Andrew Chrabascz will be too much for the overmatched Hoyas today.
