Georgetown vs. Colorado Predictions

The Buffaloes have been opened as five-point favorites for this Big East vs. Pac-12 tilt. The first game on Saturday’s CBS schedule (12:15 p.m. ET) has an opening total line of 138 points. Georgetown earned a bid in this tournament the old fashioned way by winning the Big East Tournament. This impressive run featured upsets against Villanova and Creighton as the top two teams in that conference.

Colorado was stunned by Oregon State in the Pac-12 Tournament’s title game in a two-point loss as an 8.5-point favorite. While the Buffalos should prevail with the straight-up win in this game, this is a 12 vs. 5 matchup you can bet against the spread taking the five points.

Defense will keep the Hoyas in this game until the final buzzer while also keeping the total UNDER the current 138-point line.

  • Score Prediction: Colorado 67 Georgetown 65
  • Best Bets - Side: Georgetown +5
  • Best Bets - Total: UNDER 138

Handicapping Georgetown vs. Colorado

Villanova was less than full strength and Creighton did not bother to show up in the Big East title game. Yet, Georgetown’s 5-1 record down the stretch (SU and ATS) closing as an underdog in each game is a rather impressive stat.

Colorado also got hot at the right time of the year with a SU six-game winning streak before coming up short against Oregon State. The main difference between each of these runs is the quality of the teams the Hoyas beat and a less than exciting Pac-12 lineup of teams.

The Buffaloes are the better overall team in this matchup but they are going to have to prove it on Saturday.
