There is one pick today.
Take Georgetown +2 spread (buy the half point) against Marquette for 3% of the bankroll.
Marquette couldn't afford to lose another game in the regular season entering the weekend and with all the pressure to win on their shoulders, they were held to their lowest scoring output of the season against a very bad DePaul team. With that loss to DePaul, it silenced any hope of securing an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. With their postseason hopes dashed, we're not sure this Marquette team will have the motivation to compete in this contest. Their defense is already ranked 152nd in the country and now with nothing to play for, Georgetown should be able to score at will against them tonight.
The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between Marquette and Georgetown, and the Golden Eagles haven't struggled mightily on defense on the road, giving up an average of 84.8 points on 51.1 percent shooting from the field. While the Georgetown Hoyas have struggled themselves to win games, they have been firing on all cylinders on offense, shooting over 48 percent from the field in their last five games.
This is also a revenge game for the Hoyas, who suffered a 74-65 loss earlier this season at Marquette. What is interesting about that matchup is that Marquette managed to drain 13 three-pointers in that contest and yet still only managed to win by 9 at home. Given how they struggled against DePaul over the weekend, we expect the Golden Eagles to bounce back offensively in this contest, however, their lack of play on defense is going to cost them once against as Georgetown gets their revenge and wins this game outright in a shootout.
