Betting On Connecticut Georgetown – Connecticut And Georgetown Try To Halt Losing Ways

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:11:55 PM

The Connecticut Huskies and Georgetown Hoyas are both experiencing continued periods of struggle in a long and grueling Big East season. One team will get a needed boost this week.

Why Connecticut Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, it’s worth mentioning that the Hoyas are just one of many mercurial teams in the league, a band of basketball brothers that’s hard to get a finite read on. The Hoyas performed quite well in the first three weeks of Big East play, but they were soundly beaten by a Pittsburgh team that hadn't won a single league game until the past week. Pitt was boosted by the return of point guard Travon Woodall, who immediately lent cohesion and form to a roster that was plainly disjointed in his absence. However, Pittsburgh’s quality performance could not hide the reality of Georgetown’s meager showing. The Hoyas were consistently outworked by the Panthers, losing not just by one or two buckets on a foul shot or a late sequence, but by 12 points. The 72-60 loss was just the latest downer for a team that has not been able to sustain a strong start to its season.

Georgetown was the first team to beat Louisville this season, but the Cardinals have proven to be an overvalued team ever since then. It’s true that Georgetown came from behind to beat Marquette, but the Hoyas’ win in the early days of January feels like a long time ago. This team lacks a strong inside presence, and with Connecticut getting prized performer Ryan Boatwright into its lineup after a prolonged dispute with the NCAA, the Huskies should be able to go to work inside against the smaller, less imposing Hoyas. Big East basketball is fundamentally bruising, and Connecticut has the better, brawnier post players in this contest. That’s hard to pick against, even though this game will be played on the Hoyas’ home court at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

Why Georgetown Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who follow the Big East Conference for a living know that even though Ryan Boatwright is back in Connecticut’s lineup, the Huskies are hardly assured of success.  The Connecticut team that started the league season 4-0? It has now lost three games after falling to Notre Dame at home on Sunday. The defending national champions were supposed to be boosted by the return of Boatwright, but UConn's offense clearly didn't get the memo on Sunday, managing just 48 points in a discordant, choppy affair that will only raise more questions about the Huskies' March bonafides. Georgetown is not a terrific offensive team, but the Hoyas can certainly defend with energy. Connecticut might limit Georgetown to 57 points, but the Hoyas can hold UConn to 50.

Who Will Win

It’s going to be a close game, but one should trust Connecticut’s muscle near the rim. Neither team will flourish at the offensive end, but the Huskies will out-rebound the Hoyas en route to a victory on the road.
