The Marquette Golden Eagles and Georgetown Hoyas face off on Monday at Capital One Arena. When these two teams faced off in March of 2021 it was Georgetown that won 69-49. 

Marquette comes into this game with a 9-6 record overall and they have gone 7-8 against the spread. Marquette’s last game was against Providence, and it was an impressive one putting up 88 points on the way to the victory. The Golden Eagles are averaging 73.4 points while their defense is giving up 70.3 points per game. Forward Justin Lewis has been the top player for Marquette averaging 15.7 points while shooting 41.8 percent from the field and 27.1 percent from behind the three point line. In this game Marquette is going to need the defense to be good.

On the other side of this matchup is the Georgetown Hoyas who sit with a 6-5 record and they have gone 5-6 against the spread. This is a Hoyas team that has been up and down this season and their last game came against TCU. The offense put up 80 points and that was enough to win by seven points. Georgetown is averaging 77 points while their defense is giving up 73 points per game. Aminu Mohammed has been the top player for Georgetown averaging 14.6 points while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from behind the three point line.

Marquette is 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games. The over is 6-1 in Georgetown’s last seven home games. The over 4-1 in Georgetown’s last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 4-1 in Marquette’s last 5 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

Marquette looked quite impressive in the last game against Providence and they are going to continue that success in this game against Georgetown. I expect Marquette is going to run up the score, and Georgetown’s defense is going to have no answer. Back Marquette against the spread. I also believe this game is going to be a shootout, and the over is going to cash.
