Betting on the Georgetown Hoyas (+5)

Record: 13-12 Overall / 7-9 Conference

Georgetown is peaking. Not expected to make the NCAA National Tournament, Patrick Ewing’s Hoyas booked a spot in the Big Dance by completing a surprising title run in the Big East tourney in which they defeated the Villanova Wildcats and the Creighton Bluejays. Georgetown has been hot from deep of late, making at least 38.5 percent of their 3-point shots in each of its last three games. In the Big East title game versus Creighton, Georgetown went 10 of 26 from behind the arc. Georgetown is led by Jahvon Blair with 15.8 points per game this season, but Dante Harris has assumed a bigger role lately, having averaged 11.1 points in the Big East tournament. 

Georgetown, which is averaging 71.4 points per game, is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games overall.

Betting on the Colorado Buffaloes (-5)

Record: 22-8 Overall / 14-6 Conference

Colorado failed to win the Pac-12 tourney after losing to the Oregon State Beavers in the finals, but they made the Big Dance nonetheless. The Buffaloes have a balanced game on both sides of the floor. They are 17th nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency with 115.1 points per 100 possessions and 29th in adjusted defensive efficiency with 92.0 points allowed per 100 possessions. McKinley Wright IV has the tools to take over a game by himself. He is averaging 15.5 points per game on 48.4 percent shooting from the field while distributing 5.6 assists per contest. Georgetown will be forced to defend honestly against Colorado, which is a great free-throw shooting team. The Buffaloes enter the 2021 March Madness second nationally with an 82.2 percent shooting from the foul line.

Colorado is 4-2 against the spread in its last six games overall.

Writer’s Prediction

Colorado wins, 75-0.
