Matchup History

St. John’s 90-77 win back on February 3rd, 2022, made it three straight head-to-head wins for the Red Storm in this matchup.


Georgetown is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS win. St. John’s is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.


I’m sticking with the over here. I get the case to be made for backing or fading either side here, but Georgetown’s road defense has been brutal and St. John’s can put up points, but the Red Storm haven’t been very good defensively in their own right and I just feel like this is going to be a high-scoring game. Give me the over here.
