Why Bet on Georgetown Hoyas?

On the season, Georgetown averages 71.3 points (146th) per game on 40.3% shooting. These are by no means enough to keep up with the best in the division. However, the Hoyas have several strengths they can utilize against Seton Hall. First and foremost, they are great from the line. Georgetown hits 74.2% of its foul shots (90th). Next is the team’s three-point shooting. The Hoyas make 34.6% of their attempts from downtown (125th) and is slightly better than what Seton Hall documents. Last but not least is the team’s offensive rebounding numbers. The visitors can find more second-chance points with a solid 11.1 offensive rebounds (14th) per game average.

Defense is where the Hoyas might fall behind. The team allows 77.2 points (323rd) per game and limits opponent shooting to 46.0% (293rd). Georgetown needs to work on this area or double up on offense to keep the scoreline close.

Jordan Riley is the only Georgetown player to miss the game after sustaining a shoulder injury in February. The rest of the starting lineup and role-players remain healthy leading up to Wednesday’s game.

Why Bet on Seton Hall Pirates?

February plagued Seton Hall with injuries. The injury report features key player Bryce Aiken (concussion) sitting the games out alongside Jahari Long (lower body), Ryan Conway (illness), and Brandon Weston (ankle). Nevertheless, the head coach Kevin Willard has enough in his arsenal to keep the team afloat in this game.

The overall statistics tell us that Seton Hall will focus on its defense. The team limits opponents to 67.2 points (108th) per game. They have an impressive defense that holds teams to 45.5 from the field (23rd). Seton Hall’s shooting defense also keeps teams under 40.6% shooting (38th), which highlights a 45.6% two-point shooting (26th) and 30.8% three-point (48th) percentage. The Pirates are also the better defensive rebounding team of the two averaging 25.4 defensive boards (46th) in 27 games.

Previewing the offense, Seton Hall does have slightly better shooting numbers. The team shoots 47.9% from the field and hits 76.3% of its shots from the line. We expect both teams to remain neck and neck in this department.

Georgetown vs. Seton Hall Expert Betting Predictions

Georgetown is going through multiple issues this season. The team’s defense gets the receiving end of the criticism as the Hoyas can only manage a 328th scoring defense and 308th field goal defense. However, we saw sparks of life from the team when they played road games. Georgetown is perfectly capable of covering the spread, but a win demands 110% from the side. Simultaneously, Seton Hall is a consistent team that can put its robust defense to play here. The Pirates struggled at home in narrow wins against DePaul and Butler, but having homecourt advantage still plays to their favor.
