Georgetown is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 Saturday games. The under is 4-1 in Georgetown’s last 5 games. Xavier is 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games. The over is 5-2 in Xavier’s last 7 games. The home team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have been really bad in their recent games, but Georgetown has been bad all season. The Hoyas defense is one of the worst in the Big East, but Xavier has allowed 81 points or more in four of their last five games. I am taking the over with two defenses that are really struggling.
