Score: 62 - 55
Point Spread: +3½/-105 Georgetown
The wrong team appears to be favored in this game. The Hoyas have been good at stepping up in a big game which explains why they are 11-4 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record this season. The Bearcats have lost two of their last three games while the Hoyas have won six in a row straight up and against the spread. There seem to be some coaches that keep the pedal to the floor late in a game and others that play a bit more conservative. Playing as a home favorite it is usually best to have an aggressive coach if you want to cover the spread. The Bearcat’s Mick Cronin is certainly not an aggressive coach which is why he is 22-46 ATS as a home favorite or pick as the coach of Cincinnati. Against common opponents the Hoyas are 7-2 overall and 8-1 ATS compared to a 5-4 straight up performance and 3-6 ATS from Cincinnati. I will take the team with the better record on the same strength of schedule and the team that has the better defense. Hoyas plus the points is the play in this one.
