Will update with trends once they're released.
The Georgetown Hoyas are 4-6 against the spread on the road, and they lose on the road this season by an average of five points while shooting just 42.5 percent from the field. The Creighton Bluejays have not only won nine of their last 11 games, but they win at home by an average of 16.3 points while shooting 49.4 percent from the field. The Creighton Bluejays are also a profitable 9-4 against the spread at home and 16-12 against the spread on the season. The Georgetown Hoyas are 3-0 against the spread this season as a double-digit underdog, but I'm not steeping in front of Creighton in its current form.
