Harvard has also looked sharper than Georgetown in the first couple of games, as the Hoyas have won their last two games by a combined six points and now have to go on the road in a tough environment. The Harvard Crimson have won 12 of their last 13 home games.
I look for Harvard to win this game by double digits.
