North Texas vs. Georgetown Pick

College Basketball Predictions: North Texas vs. Georgetown 12/20/17

Can Georgetown avoid a letdown at home tonight when the Hoyas host North Texas tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Georgetown is favored in this game, as the Hoyas are getting odds of -9.5 points against North Texas. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 144.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. and will air live on FS2.

Georgetown is coming off an 86-79 loss to Syracuse for its first defeat of the season. The Hoyas are now 8-1 on the season, including 7-1 at home. Georgetown is just 1-5 against the spread this year, failing to cover in their last five games. Georgetown is averaging 81.7 points per game on offense while allowing 66.7 per contest in defense. Jessie Govan is leading Georgetown with 20.7 points and 12.4 rebounds per game while Marcus Derrickson is adding 13.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per contest.

North Texas is riding a three-game winning streak entering tonight’s game. The Mean Green are now 7-5 overall while posting a 5-1 record against the spread. They have covered the spread in five straight. North Texas is averaging 73.3 points per game on offense this year while allowing 73.2 on defense. Roosevelt Smart is leading North Texas with 18.5 points per game while Ryan Woolridge is adding 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game.

Bet on North Texas vs. Georgetown

These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight. Despite the good record at home, Georgetown is just 16-35 against the spread in their last 51 home games and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 non-conference games. North Texas has covered in four straight road games and five straight non-conference games. The public betting is siding with Georgetown, but I think the Hoyas aren’t a team ready to pull away from North Texas.
