Villanova Good Bet Against Still Struggling Georgetown

This matchup between Villanova and Georgetown is a tough decision for betting on college basketball spreads. Villanova is the favorite to win, but that is because Georgetown has lost nine straight and is one of the worst teams in the Big East.

In the Wildcats’ last game, it seemed like they were trending in the right direction with an 80-54 win over Seton Hall. On the other hand, the Hoyas continued to struggle, picking up their ninth straight loss against Creighton, 94-72.

Villanova vs Georgetown ATS Pick: Villanova -10½

The best option in college basketball picks is to go with Villanova despite not having much faith in the team. While the Wildcats have won two of their last three games, beating Providence and Seton Hall, it was not going great before that.

Before Villanova beat Providence, it was on a five-game losing streak. Sure, that stretch did include three games against ranked opponents, but the Wildcats only covered one spread in that time. They were even favored to beat a ranked opponent in Marquette at home but lost.

The last win over Seton Hall has the chance to spark something for Villanova, with a big offensive performance from Eric Dixon. He had 18 points in the game and is averaging 17.7 against Big East teams this season.

However, the main question is, can Villanova cover this large spread set by the sportsbook? The spread is so large because of how bad Georgetown has been. Losing nine straight is not good, and the last five spreads have all been double digits, with the Hoyas only covering twice.


Villanova vs Georgetown Over/Under Pick: Over 139½

With all of Georgetown’s issues this season, hitting the over has been somewhat consistent. The Hoyas have hit the over in 14 of 24 games, doing so eight times over the last 10.

That could lean college basketball odds toward the over in this game. Another reason Georgetown hits the over frequently is that the team’s defense has struggled. Against conference opponents, the Hoyas allow 82.1 points per game.

Villanova has not exactly been the best offense in the Big East, averaging 72.5 points per game this season, but it should take advantage of Georgetown’s defense.


Villanova vs Georgetown Player Prop Pick: Eric Dixon Over 16.5 points (-110)

It will be crucial if Dixon can exploit the weak Georgetown defense for Villanova. He is coming off a big game against Seton Hall but has also been playing well recently. Dixon is the top scorer for the Wildcats against conference opponents, with 17.7 points per game, averaging 15.8 points per game this season.
