Rutgers Offense Isn’t Good Enough
Rutgers hasn’t exactly played a tough schedule so far this season, but the offense hasn’t been exactly elite. In the first game against Princeton, Rutgers was able to secure a 68-61 victory. Two games ago against Boston, Rutgers was able to secure the 69-45 victory, and in the last game against Bryant they secured the 66-57. In the first half against Bryant, Rutgers only scored 29 points. Aundre Hyatt did have a strong game putting up 19 points, eight rebounds, and two assists.
Georgetown Coming off Terrible Loss
Georgetown sits with a 1-1 record but they are coming off a terrible loss. Georgetown scored 67 points against Holy Cross, but they lost by a point, They were outscored 36-30 in the second half and that led to the defeat. Jayden Epps was a top player for Georgetown putting up 22 points and three assists. Rowan Brumbaugh had a strong game also putting up 17 points, three assists, and two rebounds. In the first game Georgetown scored 94 points, but in this game it’s going to come down to if the defense is going to step up here.
Shane’s Free Pick
I don’t trust this Rutgers offense overall, but they are still the better team here. Georgetown has a defensive issue and they are going to really struggle to defend here. Rutgers is going to have their offense put up plenty of points here, and the Georgetown isn’t going to be keeping this game close. Back Rutgers against the spread. This is one of my favorite plays on the board for Wednesday.
