The Bearcats are just 2-9 ATS this year at home, and that’s a bad omen for this one against a very good Georgetown team that is hoping to log another huge ‘W’ on the road. The Hoyas are one of the hottest teams in the land, and we are definitely going to continue backing them for as long as that stays the case, especially here in the Big East, where teams seem to get hot and cold all the time. Otto Porter and Markel Starks are turning into a great inside/outside duo. The question that we have for the Hoyas is whether they are going to be able to stick around with a three-guard lineup that the Bearcats love to use. Of course, on the other side of the court, there are going to be all sorts of matchups problems for UC as well, knowing that it is going to be undersized going against a very big and very athletic Georgetown outfit. It just isn’t a game that looks to be that pretty for the Bearcats. They aren’t going to get to 60 in this one in all likelihood, and if that turns out to be the case, the game is going to play right into the hands of the red hot Hoyas. Play the visitors on Friday night.
Georgetown vs. Cincinnati Pick: Georgetown Hoyas +4
Georgetown vs. Cincinnati Prediction: Georgetown 65 – Cincinnati 58
