I'm not excited to lay this many points with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights because I'm not convinced they're worth this much chalk. However, the Georgetown Hoyas have been subpar at best for a while, and their loss against Holy Cross does nothing to change the narrative. This is a pass for me overall, but if forced to pick, I'm going to side with the better team, and that's Rutgers in this spot.
