The Providence Friars (14-12, CONF 7-6) and Georgetown Hoyas (15-10, CONF 5-7) face off in a Big East showdown At Capital One Arena. The Friars and Hoyas faced off on New Years Eve, and Providence was able to come away with a 16 point victory.
The Friars still have a lot of work to do if they want to make the tournament, and this game should probably be treated as a must win. The Friars are coming off one of the biggest wins of the season, knocking off Seton Hall by three points.
Guard Alpha Diallo was the star of the show putting up 35 points, 10 rebounds, and two assists in 31 minutes of play.
The Hoyas have dealt with a lot of things this year, but they have still found a way to be competitive most of the season. Georgetown comes into this game having won three of the last four games, including a win a seven-point win in their last game Butler when they were 11.5 point favorites.
Over the last five games the Hoyas defense is giving up 71.4 points per game, and if they want a chance in this game that defense is going to need to step up.
The Friars are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games. The Hoyas are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games. The underdog is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between the Hoyas and Friars. The road team is 7-3 ATS in the last ten meetings.
The Hoyas have a lot of confidence after their last win over Butler, and that will carry over into this game. Look for the Hoyas to cover the spread with ease.
