The No. 16 Villanova Wildcats will take on the Georgetown Hoyas at noon ET on Saturday in Big East action at the Wells Fargo Center to help get Saturday's college basketball schedule underway. Villanova is 11-3 overall and 6-0 at home, while Georgetown is 11-5 overall and 2-2 on the road. The Wildcats are favored by 7.5 points in the latest Villanova vs. Georgetown odds, while the over-under is set at 147.5. Before entering any Georgetown vs. Villanova picks, you'll want to see the college basketball predictions from the model at SportsLine.
The model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has crushed its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread the past three years, returning $2,770 to $100 players. Anybody who followed it during that span has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Villanova vs. Georgetown 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in well over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Wildcats beat Creighton 64-59 on Tuesday. The Wildcats can attribute much of their success to guard Collin Gillespie, who had 24 points in addition to seven boards. Gillespie leads the team with 15 points per game, but it's a balanced attack for Villanova with five players averaging over 10 points. The Wildcats are 6-7-1 against the spread this season, but have covered four times in six tries at home.
Meanwhile, Georgetown (9-7 ATS) prevailed over St. John's 87-66 on Wednesday. Guards Mac McClung and Terrell Allen were among the main playmakers for Georgetown as the former had 24 points along with six rebounds and the latter had 16 points along with five steals. McClung (16.4 ppg) has been a big factor on the offensive end this season, but the Hoyas have really gotten a boost from NC State transfer Omer Yurtseven, a 7-footer who leads the team in scoring (16.9 ppg) and on the boards (9.9 rpg).
Georgetown won 85-73 the last times these squads met up in February of 2019.
