As for Oregon, they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400, and 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a losing straight-up record. Oregon is also 2-5 ATS in their last seven Monday games, and 53-25-3 ATS in their last 81 games following an ATS win.
This year, Georgetown is pretty far removed from their former glory days, but they get credit for making the games interesting at least. Oregon, meanwhile, looked pretty limp against Baylor and honestly hasn’t been the type of shut-down squad they need to be do do any damage this year. I think the Hoyas have enough scoring to stay in this game and at least cover, as long as the line isn't too wild.
