Georgetown Syracuse Betting - Georgetown Tries To Pull Off Big Upset Against Orange

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:22:19 PM

The Syracuse Orange are the reigning kings of the Big East, headed to a regular-season league championship. Can Georgetown possibly slow the Cuse’s forward momentum? We’ll see.

Why Georgetown Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, it’s worth mentioning that Georgetown is proving to be more resilient than a number of Big East experts might have been led to believe at the start of the season. Georgetown was an underdog against Louisville in late December, but the Hoyas outfoxed the Cardinals to get their season off to a good start. Georgetown struggled in a loss at Pittsburgh a few weekends ago, and the Hoyas were also taken apart at home by Cincinnati, furthering questions about their legitimacy within the Big East and the larger world of college basketball. However, coach John Thompson III’s club answered the bell last week by shutting down Connecticut, holding the Huskies to only 44 points in what was an authoritative defensive performance.
Georgetown seems to step up precisely when its doubters multiply. Georgetown is definitely being doubted heading into this contest, so it’s precisely the kind of situation in which the Hoyas can spring an ambush. Syracuse is clearly the best team in the Big East, but the Orange are not always responsible with the ball or prudent in their shot selection. A rugged defensive showing from Georgetown can certainly tilt this game in the Hoyas’ favor.

Why Syracuse Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who follow the Big East Conference for a living know that Syracuse is likely to be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, primarily because of quality wins such as a takedown of Florida early in the season. How does a team attain a No. 1 seed? You can identify it on the court. Elite athletes at not just one or two spots on the floor, but three or four, make the difference between top seeds and fourth seeds when tournament time arrives. In the forms of Kris Joseph, Scoop Jardine, and Dion Waiters, Syracuse has three top-level slashers who can will their way to the basket and break down defenses, setting up quality looks near the rim or on the perimeter. Joseph and Jardine excel more with their quickness, while Waiters is a sleek and complete player as a sophomore whose skill set is probably the best on the entire Orange roster.
With all three men on the floor, Syracuse is quicker and more resourceful than any other team in the United States. Whereas No. 1 Kentucky butters its bread on power and length, Syracuse – at No. 2 in the country – is built on speed and the ability to outmaneuver a defense at every turn. Georgetown will find it difficult to keep pace with the Cuse in the Carrier Dome.

Who Will Win

It’s Syracuse’s year in the Big East. Someone will have to win in the Carrier Dome before anyone should actually pick against the Orange on their home floor.
