Villanova made 3 out of 18 three-point shots. If Georgetown’s defense can step it up again, they can keep it close again.
Bet The Villanova Wildcats Because…
Villanova wants to make a statement versus their longtime rival. Villanova versus Georgetown is one of the great college hoops rivalries. Villanova knows that it needs to continue to win big in order to secure the 1 seed in the East Bracket of this year’s NCAA Tournament. Even though the Wildcats will be favored by 16 to 20 points in this, don’t put it past them to beat Georgetown by 20 to 30. Leaving nothing on the court in this game is the way that the more talented Wildcats are likely to play.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Georgetown has been reeling. Villanova hasn’t been great against the spread, going 1 and 3 in their last 4, but when Villanova loses either ATS or straight up there’s a reason. For example, Villanova beat Depaul 83 to 62 in their last game but lost ATS because they gave Depaul 22 points. They beat Butler 77 to 67 on Feb. 20 but lost ATS because they ended up giving Butler 11 points.
Don’t expect Villanova to take the pedal off of the gas versus Georgetown in the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. This is a big enough game for Villanova to play Georgetown in Philly in front of over 20,000 people. The Wildcats should destroy the rival Hoyas in this matchup.
