The American Eagles and the Georgetown Hoyas meet in college basketball action from the Capital One Arena on Wednesday.

The American Eagles will try to build on back-to-back wins after a 58-53 win over NJIT last time out. Colin Smalls leads American in scoring with 11.7 PPG while Matt Rogers has 10.5 PPG with a team-high 5.5 RPG to lead the Eagles on the glass as the only other double-digit scorer for American up to this point in the year. Elijah Stephens also has 9.5 PPG with a team-high 4.5 APG to lead American in the assist department while Geoff Sprouse also has 9.5 PPG this season. As a team, American is averaging 63.5 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field, 36.4% from three and 76.2% from the foul line this season.

The Georgetown Hoyas will be out to build on a 69-62 win over La Salle last time out. Primo Spears lead the Hoyas in scoring with 16.6 PPG along with 3.8 APG while Brandon Murray has 15.4 PPG with a team-high 4.4 APG to lead the Hoyas in the assist department this season. Qudus Wahab has 14 PPG with 6.8 RPG and Jay Heath has 12.3 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Georgetown up to this point in the year. Akok Akok also has a team-high 8.6 RPG to lead the Hoyas on the glass up to this point in the year. As a team, Georgetown is averaging 77.8 PPG on 46.7% shooting from the field, 34.1% from three and 77.3% from the foul line this season.

American is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record. Georgetown is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 home games against a team with a losing road record.

I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m on the over here. I still don’t trust Georgetown as far as I can throw them to cover a number, but more often than not this season they’re bringing some form of offense to the table and if they play to their average, we just need about 60 points from American which is more than doable. Give me the over here.
