The perfect Sunday means Sports
Profit System is riding a hot 15-6-2 NFL streak and will finish the football season with a higher profit
than all others even before the Super Bowl! We of course fully intend
on winning as we did with the Ravens last year and eagerly look forward
to Seahawks vs. Broncos.
Those who remained patient and disciplined through the inevitable ups and downs have reaped the full rewards as no service has outperfomed SPS when looking at seasonal numbers which is all that really matters.
Bankrolls were expanded by 6% last week and that marked our 3rd straight winning week and a solid start to the new year.
There is only one game that we feel presents enough wagering value tonight.
Take Georgetown at -3 spread against Marquette risking 2%
This is an interesting matchup between two teams that are both playing poorly at the moment and could really use a win tonight. On Saturday we bet against Marquette on their visit to a struggling Butler team and tonight we feel they are in a similar situation again.
Marquette is a team that can play well at home but on the road they
are a completely different group and their 2-7 away record proves that!
They recently dropped to 2-3 in conference play after dropping their last game against previously winless (in conference) Butler. After mounting a 10-point second half lead, the Golden Eagles managed to give it all up before being thoroughly handled in overtime. With that loss Marquette fell to just 1-5 in true road games this season and must be deflated and hurting. Tonight's contest will be just as tough for them as Georgetown needs this game just as badly if not more.
The Hoyas have a good defense, they hold opponents to just under 60 points per game; the issue with them has been their offense recently. They have not been able to maintain any real momentum on offense. Even though they are scoring an average of 70 points per game, they can be inconsistent at times. Their previous defeat was a stunning upset by the Seton Hall Pirates in this same venue this past weekend. Georgetown enjoyed a double digit lead before failing to close the game out and ended up getting blownout themselves! That loss certainly hurt the Hoyas and will have motivated them to regroup, make adjustments and bounce back tonight.
Georgetown needs a victory considering what it's been through recently
and who it'll be facing next. After tonight's winnable home game, they have been set up with nationally
ranked Creighton and Villanova who are the top two teams in the Big
East! Those two games will be very difficult and the Hoyas know that
realistically they may come out of them empty handed. They therefore
absolutely "need" to win this game to restore some confidence
heading into those tougher matchups and to keep distance between the
chasing pack which includes Marquette in the standings. After a few
lackluster performances, we expect them to put forth a more complete
effort tonight. With the line being short, the value is with the home
team that is not only superior but more motivated as well in our opinion.
Other notable facts to consider:
- Georgetown has won 8 of its last 9 home games!
- Marquette is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 road games.
- The home team has won the last 6 meetings between these two sides.
- Marquette is 0-6 as an underdog this season!
