St. John’s Red Storm at Georgetown Hoyas Prediction

The Hoyas come into this game on a four game losing streak and while they weren’t embarrassed in those four games they certainly don’t deserve being a favorite of this size based on their recent form. Their body of work at home shows not one victory over an opponent in the same class level as the Red Storm. Georgetown does hold an edge on the glass, so I wouldn’t go crazy on this game, but the obvious pick on the spread is St. John’s.
