St. John’s is 2-6 against the spread following a loss, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games, and 2-8-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Georgetown is 2-5 against the spread against the spread against a team with a losing record, 4-11 against the spread following a win, and 4-1 against the spread on the road against a team with a winning home record. The home team covers the point spread in the last five meetings of these two.
This is a big number but I have Georgetown covering it against a weak St. John’s team.
