The Bulldogs are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss. The Hoyas are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 home games. The under is 3-1-1 in Bulldogs last 5 overall. The over is 4-0 in Hoyas last 4 overall. The road team is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Georgetown Hoyas are an inconsistent, underachieving bunch, but they're at home here, and they're kind of due for a breakout performance. The Butler Bulldogs aren't playing well entering this contest, they're not as talented as past years and the offense has serious limitations. This is a winnable game for Georgetown. I'll grab the free bucket.
