NCAA basketball betting on Friday has the 20th ranked Georgetown Hoyas visiting the Tulane Green Wave.
The Hoyas are favored in college basketball betting on the road in this matchup. Here are some interesting facts to consider in NCAA basketball betting for Georgetown and Tulane.
NCAA basketball betting is going to be popular on Georgetown this season because they have sophomore Greg Monroe who is considered the best player in the Big East. Monroe should have a field day in this college basketball betting game against a Tulane team that simply doesn’t have a strong frontcourt. The starting five for Tulane is not expected to have anyone taller than 6-foot-7 as NCAA basketball betting stats show, so they are going to have serious matchup problems against Monroe.
Tulane does have some speed so they will look to run and gun in this NCAA basketball betting game with guards Kevin Sims and Kris Richard. The problem for Tulane in this NCAA basketball betting matchup is that Georgetown has a nice backcourt with Austin Freeman and Chris Wright. Georgetown also has players in addition to Monroe that can score and impact NCAA basketball betting. Henry Sims and Hollis Thompson can take advantage of Tulane’s lack of size as well in this NCAA basketball betting contest.
The college basketball betting matchups in terms of size and talent definitely favor Georgetown in this NCAA basketball betting game. The Hoyas are too strong inside for Tulane to contain them and hold them down in NCAA basketball betting. Head coach Dave Dickerson is aware that his team faces a tough college basketball betting matchup. "Georgetown will be ranked in the Top 25 in the country this year. Two years ago, they were in the Final Four, and they have a local product in Greg Monroe, who was one of the best players in high school two years ago. That will be a tough challenge for our guys but it’s something we’re looking forward to.” Dickerson said, “We couldn’t turn that game down. Whenever you have a school like Georgetown to open up the season with the name recognition they’ve had and the presence they’ve had in the state of Louisiana, you have to take that. It’s a game that will tell us a lot about our team and it’s a game I’m sure our players are excited about playing.”
Georgetown is a solid NCAA basketball betting favorite in this Friday matchup against Tulane.
