Why Consider Betting On Xavier?

Why should you consider betting on the Musketeers? Because Xavier has a lot to play for and should be very focused on getting spanked this past weekend.The Musketeers might be an impressive 24-4 on the season and ranked inside the national top five, but you would have never known it the way they got soundly beaten by No. 3 Villanova 95-79 at home on Saturday to see their nine-game winning streak come to an abrupt halt.Now, Xavier needs to be on guard against a Georgetown that took them to overtime in their previous meeting this season.“I told our team (against Georgetown) afterward that we should have done a better job defensively with our game plan but I give Georgetown a lot of credit. We had a battle on our hands at the very end and the game could have gone either way,” Xavier coach Chris Mack said. “Our team was able to function down the stretch, get good shots for each other, play deep into the shot clock and execute, and hopefully that really helps us as we get closer to the end of February and early March.”Xavier is led by elite point guard Trevon Bluiett who averages 19.8 points per game while two other players also average double figures for the Musketeers.

Why Consider Betting On Georgetown?

Why should you consider betting on the Hoyas? Because the Hoyas have looked fantastic in their last two games, they’re playing at home and nearly beat the Musketeers the last time they met.Georgetown is a modest 15-10 in Patrick Ewing’s first season at his beloved Alma Mater, but the Hoyas have looked phenomenal in beating Seton Hall 83-80 on February 10 and Butler 87-83 on February 13.Georgetown comes in as the underdog at the College Basketball Odds against Xavier.Junior forward Marcus Derrickson had a career-high 27 points and three others scored in double figures in the victory. Georgetown is well-rested having not played in eight days.“We’ve lost six or seven games when we’ve had the lead,” Ewing said. “If my team hasn’t learned from that yet, then we aren’t going to learn anything. I thought we showed some resiliency and were able to make plays at the end both offensively and defensively.”

Expert Final Analysis & Betting Pick

I know that Xavier is the only nationally-ranked team in this affair and that they’re favored to win despite being on the road in this Big East battle, but I really like the Georgetown Hoyas for the outright upset win at home seeing as how they’re playing their best basketball of the season right now.I know that Xavier has a legitimate superstar in Trevon Bluiett and that they’ve gone 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss, but then the Hoyas are an unblemished 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS win and a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. More importantly, the Musketeers have some serious problems at the defensive end of the floor right now where they’ve given up at least 90 points in four of their last five games.Pick: Georgetown +5.5 Points
