The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Tuesday, Nov. 15 with another slate of games, including the next stage of the 2022 Gavitt Tipoff Games between the Northwestern Wildcats and Georgetown Hoyas.

Both schools are 2-0 to begin the year after their latest wins. Northwestern scored a 63-46 over Northern Illinois on Friday while Georgetown defeated Green Bay, 92-58, one day later. But which program will remain victorious after Tuesday's meeting?

Northwestern vs Georgetown Prediction & Pick

Despite Georgetown's impressive start to the season, it's hard to trust the home team this time around. On top of being 2-18 straight up in their last 20 games, the Hoyas have also dropped 10 of their last 12 home games.

Even though the win against Green Bay was a blow out, Georgetown also needed overtime to beat Coppin State in a game where the Hoyas were 18.5-point favorites.

While Northwestern's offense could use improvement, its scoring defense is tied for 10th-best in the nation so far (50.0 PPG). The Wildcats are also holding opponents to 28.9% shooting from the floor (No. 4) which could be an issue for a Hoyas squad that finished with a 40.0% field-goal percentage last season.

Georgetown's impressive start will be halted Tuesday night with its first real challenge of the season. Northwestern's defense is no joke and I'm expecting the Wildcats to get a road victory here.

Final Score Prediction: Northwestern: 70 | Georgetown: 64

Northwestern vs Georgetown Betting Trends

- Northwestern is 4-1 straight up in its last five games.
- Georgetown is 4-10-1 against the spread (ATS) 15 games on a Tuesday.

Northwestern vs Georgetown Best Bet

With Northwestern's defense looking elite this season, I'm going with the under on the 147.5-point total. It also helps that the total has gone under in nine of the Wildcats' last 12 games, as well as in four of the Hoyas' last five games against the Big Ten. Unless both sides completely break down, expect a low-scoring affair.

Bet: Under 147.5 Points (-110)
