Who Public Bettors Like: Georgetown. As of this writing, 53% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Hoyas to cover the point spread. As for the total, 63% of the betting tickets are on the under.
Who We Like: The line movement on the total is an indication of sharp bettors pounding the under. That movement occurred earlier in the day too, so it had to be legitimate wiseguy movement. I too like the under, which is 11-5 in the Red Storm’s last 16 games coming off a loss and is 6-1 in the Hoyas’ last seven games after allowing more than 90 points in their previous contest.
