Georgetown Hoyas vs Seton Hall Pirates

Where: Prudential Center, Newark New Jersey

When: Wednesday February 13, 2019 8:30pm Eastern

We have a Big East matchup to consider when the Georgetown Hoyas travel to Newark for a contest with the Seton Hall Pirates. Georgetown is currently in a five-way tie for third place and five games behind conference leader Villanova and the Pirates are involved in that five-way tie and like Georgetown, is five games behind the top spot in the Big East standings.

Georgetown Likely Headed for NIT Berth

If the regular season were to end today, Georgetown and their record of 15 wins and nine losses, would likely earn an invitation to the NIT and probably would get seeded as high as fourth. And that would probably work for the Hoyas. Georgetown is 5-6 in the Big East, and with just seven games remaining on their schedule, winning the Big East might be tough. Winning would give the Hoyas momentum heading into the Big East tournament and help them get a higher seed in the NIT.

Georgetown isn’t reporting any injuries for their Wednesday night contest with Seton Hall.

This will be the first meeting this season between the two schools. Georgetown has a road record of four wins and three losses and are on a one game losing streak.

Senior center Jessie Govan leads Georgetown in points per game (18), rebounds (7.9) and blocked shots (1.4) and is also draining 1.5 triples per night. Govan has exceeded his scoring average once in the past five games.

The Hoyas score an average of 81.5 points, grab 9.4 offensive rebounds, 31 defensive rebounds and drop an average of 17.3 dimes per game this season.

Seton Hall Understands Strength of Schedule Matters

With their record of 14 wins and nine losses, if the season were to end today, Seton Hall would likely earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament and would likely be seeded twelfth. How is it possible for the Pirates to get an invite and Georgetown likely doesn’t? Strength of schedules. KenPom ranks the Pirates schedule as the twenty-second strongest in the country whereas the Hoyas is ranked as the seventy-fifth strongest schedule. Seton Hall would serve themselves well by winning a few more games, and that begins Wednesday with the Hoyas.

Seton Hall isn’t reporting any injuries for their game with Georgetown.

This is the Pirates first-time playing Georgetown this season. Seton Hall has a home record of eight wins and three losses and is riding a one-game winning streak.

Junior guard Myles Powell leads the Pirates in scoring, averaging 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and a team-high two steals per game. Powell is also draining 2.8 triples per game and has exceeded his scoring average in four of the past five games.

Seton Hall scores an average of 73.1 points, pulls down 8.1 offensive rebounds, 26.4 defensive rebounds and 13.3 assists per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

It isn’t hard to like a side with a solid home record on a winning streak, no matter how many games that winning streak is. Georgetown has been surprisingly good on the road, but the Seton Hall experience should rule the day. I will side with the Pirates on Wednesday.

Prediction: Seton Hall -5 Points

Full-Game Total Pick

That number seems to high for this game. Seton Hall plays very good defense and they know how to limit points. Especially at home. When I did the math, I came up with 142 points and thought that was about right. Then I saw the Vegas total and decided to stick with my math and play the under in this game on Wednesday.

Prediction: Under 154 Points
