Georgetown -1 Point Spread

Under 141.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Butler Bulldogs finally were able to get back in the win column with a home win over Marquette in their last game. Georgetown however, lost their second game in a row to Xavier and continues to slide further down in the Big East standings. That also makes this game pretty much a must win for the Hoyas because they need something on their resume that helps them stand out. The Hoyas do tend to play significantly better at home, whereas the Bulldogs have looked awful in conference road games. This is not a game I feel comfortable betting, but I would lean to Georgetown because of the situation surrounding them.

Over Under Pick

The total is 141.5 and the under is where I will be looking. As mentioned, Butler tends to struggle away from home. They only average 62.7 points in road games. On the other side, Georgetown will look to push the pace more. They are scoring 82.2 points per home game. That being said, Butler’s defense is still extremely good and I believe they will want to slow this game to more of a crawl. This is not a total I want to bet, but I would lean to the under because of the defense of Butler.
