The Line: Marquette Golden Eagles -7.5 -- Over/Under: 151.5
The Georgetown Hoyas and the Marquette Golden Eagles meet in college basketball action from Fiserv Forum on Wednesday.
Georgetown enters this game at 15-12 so far. In their last four games, Georgetown is 2-2, with wins over DePaul and Butler prior to losses to Providence and DePaul in their last pair.
In the loss to DePaul, Georgetown’s Terrell Allen led the team on 21 points with eight rebounds and three assists. Jamorko Pickett added 19 points and seven rebounds with one assist there, and Jagan Mosely had 13 points, four rebounds and two assists.
Over on the Marquette side, they’re 17-9 this year. The Golden Eagles are on a three-game losing streak right now, falling to Villanova, Creighton and Providence in succession during that time.
In the loss to the Friars, Marquette’s Markus Howard led the team on 38 points with four rebounds and one assist. Greg Elliott was the only other Marquette player in double-figures there, with 10 points and three boards.
Marquette is 5-1 ATS in their last six Wednesday games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight after an ATS loss. Marquette is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 overall and the under is 4-1 in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, Georgetown is 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and the under is 4-1 in their last five after an ATS loss. The under is 6-1 in Georgetown’s last seven road games and 6-1 in their last seven road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Georgetown had a run of several games leading up to the early part of the month where they were at least competitive in each outing. The Hoyas have fallen off from that a little bit in their last two, falling by 10 to Providence and six to DePaul, failing to crack 68 points either time.
Considering Marquette has played in some higher-scoring and pretty close games lately this one should be tight as well. I still like Marquette to eke out a cover though. The line doesn't really look too bad in this game.
