Georgetown at Creighton odds, picks and prediction

The Georgetown Hoyas (6-17, 0-12 Big East) visit the Creighton Bluejays (15-8, 7-5) Monday in Omaha, Neb. The contest at the CHI Health Center Omaha is slated to tip off at 9 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Georgetown vs. Creighton odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

Georgetown is 0-8 in road/neutral games this season. The Hoyas have shot under 40% from the floor in those eight games. That have put a lot of pressure on a defense which ranks well below average overall and easily as the worst defense in the Big East. Georgetown arrives in Omaha having lost 13 in a row, including five defeats decided by 10 points or less.

The Bluejays and Hoyas are meeting for a second time in three days. Creighton downed Georgetown in Washington, D.C., 80-66 Saturday. Creighton held Georgetown to a 36.6% mark from the field and has allowed a mere 37.2% figure in going 3-1 over its last four games.

Georgetown at Creighton odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Creighton 79, Georgetown 70

Money line

Creighton is the better defense by light years. Georgetown needs to drain a lot of 3’s to pull off an upset, and perimeter defense has been especially good for Creighton of late.

Georgetown destroyed Creighton in this building 73-48 last season. Look for the home five to be motivated and fully in control of this one from jump street.

Creighton (-650) will likely win, but a tag of -200 or higher is almost always difficult to leverage as value. Backing the Bluejays here will cost 6.5 times your potential return. That’s not wise sports gambling.

If you really want to bet Creighton money line, parlaying the -650 with some other options would be the way to do so.

Against the spread

PASS on a large spread open to a back-door cover against a good 3-point shooting Georgetown five.

Over/Under

Saturday’s game hit the Over, and this one is a SOLID PLAY ON THE OVER 141.5 (-115).

The Over is 4-2 across the last six GU-CU games. The Hoyas’ distance shooting and offensive rebounding makes for a threat to the total. So, too, does the likelihood the Bluejays rack up easier fast-break points.
