Today's winner is Georgetown over Cincinnati.
Georgetown is red-hot, winning and covering 6 in a row and 8 of their L9, with outright victories over Notre Dame and Louisville. The Hoyas have defeated three ranked teams thus far and are in a three-way tie for first place in the Conference. Otto Porter has stepped-up to become the teams "go-to" guy, averaging 15.3 PPG and 7.9 RPG. They have dangerous weapons both in the paint and from the perimeter on offense. However, the team possesses a stifling defense, ranked 8th in the nation, allowing a mere 58.4 PPG, including 54.2 PPG on the road. Cincinnati is 5-9 ATS their L14 overall, including a 1-7 ATS mark at home their L8 as a host. They have dropped 2 of their L3 to Providence and Pitt, both as a favorite. Inconsistency has plagued the offense while overall, the unit has problems with swarming defenses. The Hoyas are 6-0 ATS their L6 games played vs. the Big East, 4-1 ATS their L5 games played on the road, and 6-0 ATS their L6 games played against teams with a winning record. Take Georgetown. Thank you.
