Betting on Georgetown Hoyas

Georgetown vs UConn Predictions Picks Betting Odds
  • Regular season record: 5-7.

The Hoyas’ start has not been encouraging, and their visit to Connecticut this Tuesday does not appear to be ideal for them to turn things around.

Georgetown has yet to win on the road with two losses overall, and its defense is one of the worst in the nation, allowing an average of 76.5 points per game. Although the play of their centers has them as one of the quintets with more blocks in the NCAA, this does not change much that their opponents hit 44.2% of their shots from the field and that they are one of the teams that concede the most second chances.

On the offensive side, their numbers improve a bit, registering 75.2 points per game, a figure that leaves them 132nd in the nation. Against Xavier, they are shooting above 50% from the field for the second time this campaign and have been somewhat reliable from the free throw line, making 71.9% of their attempts.

Betting on the UConn Huskies

Georgetown vs UConn Predictions Picks Betting Odds
  • Regular season record: 12-0.

While the Huskies were among the favorites to contend for the Big East, few expected as impressive a start as they have had, winning the first 12 games of the year.

UConn has done everything right on both sides of the ball as they allow just 57.4 points per game, the 10th lowest in the nation, while scoring 83.6 points per contest, the 17th best mark in the league. In addition, opponents average just over 25 rebounds per game, the fifth-lowest figure in the circuit, and they shoot 27% from long distance.

On the offensive side, the main weapon to score more than 80 points per game is their effectiveness in field goal shooting, where they hit 48.6% of their shots, while the area to improve is from the free throw line, since they make 74% of their shots, a low percentage for any team looking to fight for a national title.

JefeBet Prediction

Georgetown has historically dominated their games against UConn, but things have changed a bit, and this Huskies team is off to an impressive start to the campaign.

The Hoyas have been a disaster defensively, and their offense doesn’t have what it takes to overcome one of the top 10 teams allowing the fewest points per game in the nation. We can expect a Connecticut show at home.

Prediction: UConn Spread.
