Offensive production has been hard to come by for Georgetown this season, as they are currently ranked 218th in college basketball at 70.7 points per game. A major reason for low scoring totals is the fact that they have played at a below average pace, and have struggled to knock down outside shots. As a team, the Hoyas’ 3-point shooting percentage sits at just 34.2%, placing them 236th in the NCAA.

Free Spread Prediction: Georgetown Hoyas +8.5

Our analysis for this game between the Georgetown Hoyas and Seton Hall Pirates points to Georgetown covering the spread as +8.5 point underdogs. We see the line for this matchup being set too high, leaving an opportunity for Georgetown to cover. Even if they are trailing throughout the game, the Hoyas are an excellent candidate to keep the final score closer than oddsmakers are expecting. In these situations, the better team’s pace of play can play a large role in them being able to cover such a large spread. However, given that both sides are near the NCAA average in possessions per game, Georgetown won’t be forced to play an unfamiliar style of basketball. Heading into the game, our model recommends locking in a bet on the Georgetown Hoyas at +8.5.
