Syracuse has won seven straight overall and have just one loss on the college basketball betting season. They are coming off a win on Saturday against Marquette when they had their biggest crowd of the season at the Carrier Dome. The last time they met Georgetown almost a year ago, more than 31,000 fans showed up. “We have great fans here in Syracuse,” forward Kris Joseph said. “Our fans are die-hard fans and I think them being here and being so loud helps us a lot. I think it scares a lot of teams.” Syracuse beat Marquette as Wesley Johnson had 22 points and 15 rebounds while Joseph added 14 points and 11 rebounds. “That just shows how good of a basketball team we are,” Joseph said. “Andy being shut down today was a great thing to see, because now we know what everyone else is capable of.”
Georgetown comes into this game playing very well. They upset Pittsburgh last Wednesday and followed that win by routing Rutgers on Saturday. Greg Monroe has averaged 21 points and 13.7 rebounds in his last three college basketball betting games. “We were focused for the most part,” head coach John Thompson said. “They came out with a cohesiveness and an energy which was a good for us. That’s something we’ve stressed that we want to maintain.” The Hoyas have Monroe who can impact the game inside and Chris Wright who can score from the outside. Wright had 27 points in last week’s win over Pittsburgh.
