Butler vs. Georgetown Pick

Butler vs. Georgetown College Basketball Predictions 12/27/17

Will Georgetown be able to open up Big East play with a small upset of Butler when the two meet tonight at 6:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Butler is favored on the road in this game, as the Bulldogs are getting odds of -4 points against Georgetown. The over/under total for the game has been set at 145.5 points. Today’s game will take place from Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. and air live on FS1.

Butler enters Big East play having won seven of its last eight games. Butler is now 10-3 on the year and 7-5 against the spread. The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven. Butler is averaging 77.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 65.9 per game on defense. Kelan Martin is leading Butler with 17.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while Kamar Baldwin is adding 12.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest.

Georgetown has won two straight since an OT loss to Syracuse to improve to 10-1 on the season. The Hoys have covered the spread in their last two games, but are just 3-5 ATS on the season. Georgetown is putting up 81.7 points per game on offense while allowing 64.7 per game on defense. Jessie Govan is leading Georgetown with 19 points and 12.1 rebounds per game while Marcus Derrickson is adding 13.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Butler vs. Georgetown

The road team has won three straight meetings in this series, covering the spread in all three as well. The Bulldogs are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven meetings with the Hoyas. Butler has also covered in five of its last six after a win and in five straight after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game. Georgetown is just 1-5 ATS in its last 6 conference games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 after a win of more than 20 points. The public betting is siding with Butler today and I think the Bulldogs should be more battle-tested and ready to get past the Hoyas.
