Villanova vs. Georgetown Prediction
No. 9 Villanova travels to the McDonough Arena on Friday night to take on 2-2 Georgetown at 7:00 p.m. ET. Will the 4-1 Wildcats cover as a double-digit road favorite or is there a better option on the board tonight for bettors?

Villanova vs. Georgetown College Basketball Prediction
The favorite has covered in five of the previous seven meetings between these two teams and I like the favorite to come through for bettors again tonight.
Villanova is 10-2-1 against the spread in its last 13 road games and has cashed in seven of its last nine games as a road favorite. For whatever reason, the Wildcats have performed well when playing on Friday, posting a 7-1-1 ATS record in their last nine games played on this day.
Meanwhile, the Hoyas are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games on Friday but more importantly, they’re 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a win. They’re also 2-7 against the number in their last nine games following a successful cover and are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous contest.
