College Basketball Betting Odds Marquette Golden Eagles vs Georgetown Hoyas Free Pick

Tuesday night college basketball and we will see the Marquette Golden Eagles travel to the Verizon Center to take on the Georgetown Hoyas. The game has a start time of 7:00 pm (Eastern) and will be televised on Fox Sports 1. Current Vegas betting odds have Georgetown listed as 9 point favorites, while the total is set at 133.  

Analysis:  The Marquette Golden Eagles come in having won 5 of their last 6 games to push their season record to 9-5 overall, but they are 0-2 in true road games thus far.  The Golden Eagles are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall, but just 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 vs. Big East. Marquette has been decent offensive squad this year, ranking 137th in scoring (70.0 ppg), 54th in shooting (46.4%), 187th in 3 point shooting (33.6%) and 208th in FT shooting (67.5%). The defense for this team has rather average, ranking 142nd in points allowed (64.4 ppg), 205th in defensive FG% (42.2%) and 148th in 3 point defense (32.5%).  

The Georgetown Hoyas come in having won 4 of their last 5 games to put their record at 9-4 on the year, which includes a 7-1 mark at home. The Hoyas are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 home games, but just 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. Georgetown has been a good offensive team this year, ranking 64th in scoring (73.5 ppg), 33rd in shooting (48.0%), 129th in 3 point shooting (35.5%) and 193rd in FT shooting (68.2%). Defensively the Hoyas have been average as they come in ranked 173rd in points allowed (65.6 ppg), 66th in defensive FG% (39.2%) and 146th in 3 point defense (32.5%). 

Pick:  Georgetown may win this game, but I don't think it will be that easy. This is a very underrated Marquette team that plays well and won't get blown out all that often. Both teams are even at both ends of the floor and the last 4 in this series has been decided by 8 points or less. I just can't see the Hoyas running away with this one in what should be another tight battle between Big East foes.
