Things are starting to heat-up in the Big East as the regular season hits the stretch run and Georgetown is right in the thick of things with a six-game winning streak. It is coming off a huge 63-55 victory over No.18 Marquette this past Monday as a five-point home favorite. The Hoyas are 18-4 straight-up overall and after covering in every game during this run they are now 11-7 against the spread. They are now tied with Syracuse at 8-3 for first-place in the conference standings and the total has gone OVER in three of their last four games.

Georgetown is averaging just 64.3 points a game but shooting a respectable 46 percent from the field. Otto Porter Jr. leads the team in scoring with 15.3 points a game while pulling down 7.9 rebounds. Markel Starks and Greg Whittington are each averaging over 12 points a game. The real strength of this team has been on defense, especially on the road where it is holding opponents to just 54.2 points a game.

Cincinnati knocked-off Villanova this past Tuesday 68-50 as a 7.5-point home favorite to snap a two-game skid. It is now 19-6 SU overall and 7-5 SU in Big East play. The Bearcats are 10-11 ATS after failing to cover in five of their last eight games. The total has stayed UNDER in nine of their last 10 games.

The Bearcats will need a big night from Sean Kilpatrick to get by the red-hot Hoyas. He is averaging 18.2 points a game while shooting 42.2 percent from the floor and 33.5 percent from three-point range. Cashmere Wright is chipping-in another 13.4 points and JaQuon Parker is the third Bearcat scoring in double figures with 10.9 points a game. Overall, Cincinnati is averaging 70.4 points a game but hitting only 41.5 percent of its shots from the field, which could come back to haunt them against a tough Hoyas’ defense.

Prediction

The Bearcats have won the last four meetings both SU and ATS but they are catching Georgetown at the wrong time. Stick with the Hoyas to snap their past losing streak against Cincinnati while extending their current winning streak to seven games with a SU victory on the road. Georgetown 63 Cicinnati 60
