NCAA Basketball Pick – March 6th
One of the nation’s longest winning streaks will be on the line in the City of Brotherly Love on Wednesday night for some college basketball betting action, as the red hot Georgetown Hoyas try to keep streaking against the Villanova Wildcats.
Winning 11 games in a row is no small feat, especially when you’re in the Big East. The Hoyas have done just that, and now, they are two wins away from locking down the regular season Big East title. It has been a remarkable year for the men from DC, especially knowing that a ton of these 23 wins on the season have come without F Greg Whittington in the lineup. The club really could have gone down the tubes without Whittington, who at the time was the second leading scorer on the team. However, the Hoyas have rebounded, have played remarkable basketball, and are now at the head of the class in the conference after a 2-3 start to league play. F Otto Porter has really been the man of the hour for the Hoyas, and he is now up to an average of 16.6 points per game. These last few games have suddenly made Porter a National Player of the Year candidate, as he is averaging 27.7 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in his last three games, playing an average of 43.0 minutes per game in the process.
The Wildcats are running out of chances to get into the NCAA Tournament. They’re just 18-12, have an RPI that is middling, and they really seem to be out of the magic that got them into this position in the first place. Villanova has lost back to back crushing games to the Seton Hall Pirates and the Pittsburgh Panthers. Both games were on the road, and they were lost by one point and by nine in overtime respectively. This is the last game of the regular season, and we figure that this one has to be won along with at least one more in the Big East Tournament to get the Selection Committee thinking about adding the Cats to the bracket. The talent definitely is there for this team to not just get into the tourney, but do some damage when it gets there. Villanova has three great guards in G Ryan Arcidiacono, G Darrun Hilliard, and G James Bell, and the power on the inside comes from veteran F Mouphtaou Yarou and F JayVaughn Pinkston.
We think that this game sets up well for an upset. Georgetown had covered nine straight in this winning streak before failing to beat the number in two in a row, while Villanova has been so close to picking up huge wins to boost its resume. The bulls-eye is officially on the backs of the Hoyas as well, as many think that they are now a No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament. The time is here for the upset that could put Nova in the dance. Villanova 65 – Georgetown 62
