Georgetown Hoyas Betting – Hoyas’ inconsistency catches up to them in Sweet 16

Posted by Washington Tucker on 3/12/2010 2:33:34 PM

March Madness betting players have no clue what to do with Georgetown, who can look like a No.1 seed on some days, and no more than a sixth seed on other days. The Hoyas will be one of the top darkhorses to watch in the NCAA Tournament and they may take a big scalp with them, but they’ll fall in the round of 16.

Georgetown Hoyas Betting: +4000 to win NCAA Championship

  • Georgetown has won one national title, in 1984
  • Monroe’s passing opens up floor for Freeman, other shooters
  • Turnovers can be a problem

Georgetown Hoyas Betting – They Will Go Far In The NCAA Tournament Because…

The Hoyas will go far if Greg Monroe has a big month of March. Monroe is being tipped as a lottery pick in the draft and he possesses a unique skill set for a player that is 6’11”, 250 pounds. Monroe can score in the post, and he’s a lefty, which makes him difficult to guard. He hits the boards, although he doesn’t block shots like you would hope, but his passing sets him apart. Monroe is an excellent passer on the block, which opens up the floor for Georgetown’s three-point shooters, Austin Freeman and Jason Clark. The Hoyas are at their best when Monroe is at his best, so watch out for the big man.

Georgetown Hoyas Betting –They Exit Out Of The Tournament Early Because…

Turnovers are a huge part of any team’s NCAA basketball betting odds, and the Hoyas are no different. Georgetown had 14.4 turnovers per game during the regular season, which was good for 219th in the country, and they had 20 of them in an 81-68 loss at West Virginia late in the season. Monroe is the biggest culprit at 3.3 per game, and he can be careless with the ball, but Freeman, Clark and Chris Wright are also sloppy.

Georgetown Hoyas Betting – Best Player

It would have to be between Monroe and Freeman, who was diagnosed with diabetes late in the season and will be monitored throughout the Tournament. Monroe is probably more important to the Hoyas’ sportsbook odds this year, but Freeman is probably more naturally talented, and he’s improved his three-point shot this season.

Georgetown Hoyas Betting – X-Factor

Chris Wright and Jason Clark need to hit their shots as Freeman and Monroe garner a lot of attention, and they combined for 25.3 points per game during the regular season. Clark is the Hoyas’ best three-point shooter, while Wright is an effective point guard who plays stingy defense. These two will be essential to Georgetown’s chances.

Georgetown Hoyas Betting – March Madness Prediction

The Hoyas are hard to peg, as they’ve laid some beatdowns on good opponents like Duke and Villanova, and they were also swept by Syracuse in the regular season, but beat them in the Big East tournament. Georgetown can get red-hot from the floor, and they’re almost unstoppable like that. Playing in the tough Big East has tested them, and they’ll be hungry this March after getting knocked out in the first round of the NIT last year. However, the Hoyas have been inconsistent in big games all season, and that will come back to haunt them in the Sweet Sixteen. Turnovers and a cold three-point shooting night will be their downfall.

Pick: Lose In Sweet Sixteen
