Hoyas heating up

Georgetown is coming off an 86-84 win at Marquette last weekend and the Hoyas are the 6 seed this week. Georgetown has won and covered the spread in three of its last four games coming into tonight. G’Town is now 19-12 on the season, 9-9 in Big East play, 1-1 on a neutral floor, 13-17-1 against the spread and 19-11 with the over.

The Hoyas are really good on offense but awful on defense. Georgetown is putting up 80.6 points per game while shooting 44.5 percent from the field. Defensively, the Hoys are giving up 78.5 points per game while opponents shoot 43.2 percent against them. Jessie Govan is leading the team with 17.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game while Mac McClung and James Akinjo each add 13.3 points per game.

Pirates get big wins

Seton Hall is coming off of big back-to-back wins over Marquette and Villanova over the last week. The Pirates are the 3 seed this week. They are now 18-12 on the season, 9-9 in Big East games, 4-0 on a neutral floor, 14-16 against the spread and 17-12 with the under.

The Pirates are putting up 73.8 points per game while shooting 44.4 percent from the field. Defensively, Seton Hall is giving up 71.6 points per game while opponents shoot 42.9 percent against them. Myles Powell is leading the team with 22.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while Myles Cale is adding 10.4 points per contest.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgetown

Georgetown has failed to cover in four straight neutral-site games and are 1-4 ATS in their last five following a win.

Seton Hall

The Pirates are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following a win and 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games on a neutral site.

Prediction:

These two split the season series, with the home team winning in both cases. Both teams are also playing well right now, but Seton Hall showed a lot with its wins over Villanova and Marquette last week. The Pirates have the potential and they tend to keep games close. Georgetown won’t be able to do that if it can’t shoot the ball well. I think the Hoyas’ defense will allow Seton Hall to rack up big points and get the cover.

College Basketball Prediction: Seton Hall -2.5
