Seton Hall Point Spread

Georgetown is a 14.5 point favorite today against Seton Hall. This line strikes me as high - it's probably a little inflated after the dominating performance against St. John's and Seton Hall is coming in having won 5 straight conference games (going 4-1 against the spread during that stretch). Another interesting fact is that Georgetown in 2-7 against the spread in their last 9 Saturday games. My guess is that Georgetown wins the game no problem, but covering the spread might be a little more difficult.

Johnny, I agree w/ your assessment. 14.5 spread is too rich and over-inflates the results of Wednesday's game. Stallion's prediction, Hoyas don't cover the spread, but do pull out a 8 point victory. It will not be a close game though.

Johnny, I know that it's only February 2, but are there any NCAA title odds posted yet?

Absolutely. I've meaning to post about long term NCAA odds for a little while now - I'll get this up soon.
