Georgetown Worth A Look at 15/1
- 1.The Hoyas don’t buckle against good competition. Georgetown has beaten five ranked teams this season on their way to a current No. 7 ranking.
- 2.Defense. During its current streak Georgetown held Notre Dame to 47 at Notre Dame, Cincinnati to 55 at Cincinnati and (cherry on the sundae) Syracuse to 55 at Syracuse. Not surprising that the Hoyas are 9-1 ATS over that time.
- 3.Probable conference player of the year Otto Porter has been playing out of his mind. The 6-foot-8 string bean had 22 points in the win at UConn, a few nights after sending Jim Boeheim to his Rolaids stash several times by torching the Orange for 33 (and 8 rebounds). Porter had the game-winning hoop against UConn in a game in which the Hoyas trailed in the late going.
- “They could have packed it in, and they didn’t,” G-Town coach John Thompson III said of his club. “They fought back from a double-digit deficit with three of four minutes left.
Nothing is forever in college basketball and the gods might choose to smite the Hoys next. But right now Georgetown is riding high and looks like a bargain at 15/1 to win the NCAA title.

The Raptors have feasted on weaker teams of late and I expect they will again in this position. Toronto is coming off a loss at Brooklyn and sat idle last night while the Pistons battled with the Sacramento Kings at home. Toronto is a strong 22-8 ATS versus teams with a losing record this season and should "get its fill" again here against a "tired" team. The Raptors dominated the Pistons 112-91 in Detroit earlier in the year, and all signs point to another spanking. Helping us here is the fact that the Raptors are in a dog fight for the third seed in the East; look for Toronto to be extra motivated to take care of business in this advantageous situation. Detroit is just 8-16 over its last 24, with only two of those victories coming against teams over .500. The Pistons best player in Josh Smith has struggled of late against the Raptors, averaging just 12.3 points on 35.3 percent shooting over his last eight games North of the border. Consider laying the points here with the Raptors.
