Howard is 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 road games, and 8-22-1 ATS in their last 31 games overall. Howard is also 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games following a straight-up loss, and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games.
As for Georgetown, they’re 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus a team with a losing straight-up record, and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss. Georgetown is also 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall, and 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games.
There’s really not a whole lot to like here record-wise. What we can discern is that Howard has been getting pummeled all-around, while Georgetown was at least in their first couple of losses. The Hoyas looked pretty bad in their most recent two games, but it shouldn’t matter much here against such sub-par competition. I’ll take Georgetown to cover easily. The line is a little intimidating, but it's doable.
