Georgetown is struggling right now, having lost three straight and seven of their last nine games overall.

Why Consider Betting on Villanova?

Why should you consider betting on the Wildcats in this regular season finale? Because Villanova is loaded, mature and have the better head coach. The Wildcats improved to 3-1 over their last four games but struggled in their narrow 69-68 win over Seton Hall on Wednesday night as Mikal Bridges scored a team-high 23 points and Jalen Brunson made several big plays down the stretch to hold off the Pirates.The win helped fourth-ranked Villanova avoid consecutive losses for the first time since 2012013, but head coach Jay Wright didn’t sound overly excited about the win afterward although he did give his team some praise.Villanova looks like a safe NCAA Basketball Betting Pick against Georgetown.“I don’t know,” Villanova coach Jay Wright said about the game. “I have to look at the film. It wasn’t pretty. But it was a great experience for these guys, especially this time of year, coming into a great environment against a tough defensive team and finding a way to gut it out.”

Expert Final Analysis & Score Prediction

Villanova got a win the last time out, but they’re not playing their best basketball of the season right now, seeing as how they’re just 4-3 over their last seven games. Still, the Wildcats are far superior to the Hoyas at both ends of the floor and I expect them to beat their longtime Big East rivals by double digits in their finale.The Wildcats rank first in the nation in scoring (87.5 ppg) and I believe that kind of offensive firepower will be just too much for the Hoyas to keep up with. Villanova wins by at least a dozen points.Score: Georgetown Hoyas 68 – Villanova Wildcats 80
