College Basketball Betting Trends


The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The road team is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings.


Georgetown is 126-165 ATS in home games since 1997. Three of the last five meetings have gone under the total.


The Hoyas have played fairly poorly as of late but the chance of playing spoiler at home in their regular season finale should have them up for this matchup. Georgetown has been competitive in almost all home games this season and this spread seems a bit too wide for my liking. Villanova has been inconsistent and after beating Seton Hall, it might step into this setting with a little too much confidence. Going with Georgetown here.
