Big East play continues as the DePaul Blue Demons head to the nation’s capital to take on the Georgetown Hoyas.
DePaul Blue Demons
There’s no creative way to spin it: The DePaul Blue Demons are simply not a good team. With just a single win in Big East play, the Blue Demons have struggled all season on both sides of the ball. The offense can’t score and the defense can’t stop anybody.
DePaul is ranked 273rd in the nation in scoring at 69.1 points per game while ranked 240th in opponents’ scoring at 74.6 points per game. Nothing has gone right for the team that sits just 8-19 overall this year.
The team has just two players averaging double-figures in scoring. Sophomore guard Eli Cain is averaging 16.1 points per game on 40.7% shooting and 35.5% from behind the arc.
Senior Billy Garrett is averaging 14.6 points on just 37% shooting from the field. He makes up for it at the line, shooting 91.3%.
Cain and Garrett carry this team offensively and it’s not going to be enough against a Georgetown Hoya squad that can play good defense.
Coached by John Thompson, the Georgetown Hoyas have had ups and downs all season long. The team sits at 5-9 in the Big East, 9th place in the conference, and this increasingly tough conference hasn’t been kind to the Hoyas.
The team is average on both offense and defense. It doesn’t do anything particularly well or particularly poorly. The Hoyas give up 71.8 points per game, putting the team in the top half of the nation at 172nd.
On offense, Georgetown averages 75.4 points per game, good for 127th in the nation. Junior L.J. Peak is averaging 16.7 points per game on 46.9% from the field.
Senior Rodney Pryor has been a wonderful offensive force for the team. He’s averaging 18.2 points per game on 49.9% shooting and 42.0% from behind the arc.
Georgetown should win this game, but the team will need to keep things going on the offensive end for Pryor and Peak.
CBB Betting Trends:
- DePaul is 4-2 ATS in the last six games
- The UNDER is 4-3 in Georgetown’s last seven games
Free DePaul Blue Demons vs. Georgetown Hoyas NCAAB Prediction:
Georgetown is a better team than DePaul, but the Hoyas aren’t anything special. This won’t be the easiest win of Georgetown’s season, but the team will get the W at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: DePaul ATS
DePaul isn’t going to win this game, but I don’t believe it will lose to Georgetown by 15 or more. Georgetown isn’t a great team and I think the Blue Demons will keep this one respectable.
