The Georgetown Hoyas are showing awesome value as just a 4-point home favorite over the Marquette Golden Eagles Wednesday. Georgetown is somehow going under the radar this year, but this is clearly one of the best teams in the country. They prove that tonight with a conference win over a quality opponent.
Georgetown is 12-1 this season with their only loss coming to Kansas on a neutral court. What proves that this team is underrated in the eyes of the oddsmakers and the betting public is the fact that the Hoyas are 7-1 ATS in all lined games this year. They have beaten great teams in Louisville, Memphis and Alabama all on the road.
The Hoyas are 8-0 at home this season, outscoring their opponents by an average of 24.3 points/game. Marquette lost their last road game 59-67 at LSU. They also lost two games later at home to Vandberbilt by a final of 57-74. This Eagles team is way overrated right now. That's incdicated by the fact that Marquette is 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games.
This play falls into a system that is 37-12 (75.5%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points (GEORGETOWN) - excellent defensive team - allowing
