Marquette vs Georgetown Prediction & Pick

This one lines up as a mismatch. Georgetown sits in last place in the Big East with a 1-13 conference record and Marquette checks in second with an 11-3 record. The Hoyas' average scoring margin ranks 300th in the country (-6.3), while the Golden Eagles' mark ranks all the way up at 17th (+10.4).

The Golden Eagles have proven time and time again that they should not be underestimated. They have climbed up the AP Poll rankings behind an offense that 80.9 points per game (No. 14 in NCAA) and a defense that forces 16.2 turnovers per game (No. 17 in NCAA). Marquette is simply balanced.

Marquette has won six of its last seven games against Georgetown, so back the road team here.

Final Score Prediction: Marquette: 80 | Georgetown: 66

Marquette vs Georgetown Best Bet

Marquette plays an aggressive style of defense that results in turnovers and contested shots. It's a style that has resulted in an opponent two-point shooting percentage of 47.6% on the road. Prior to Tuesday's loss, the Golden Eagles had allowed less than 69 points in each of their last four games.

In terms of Georgetown's offense, the Hoyas are averaging 70.9 points per home game. However, that mark drops down to 60.8 when looking at their most recent five home games. Head coach Patrick Ewing's squad only shoots 43.4% on the season, so don't expect the offense to suddenly ball out.

Bet: Georgetown Hoyas Under 69.5 Points (-116)
