Coming into this game, Georgetown is favored to win this game. Ken Pomeroy has Georgetown winning 67-64, which would make Georgetown 2-0 against Creighton in conference play this season, and the odds for this game are currently -3 Georgetown via Oddshark.com.
For Georgetown it is pretty simple, they are looking to continue a streak of not to losing back-to-back games in conference play. This is one of the most important stretches of the season for them, because they can win the Big East conference, but they have to play up-tempo and push the ball in transition. Last game, against Xavier, who Georgetown went 0-2 in conference played a slow game, so expect Georgetown to have a lot of fast break points in this game.
For Creighton, they are looking to grab some wins to get some confidence going before we head into March with the Big East Conference Tournament is not that far away, and that means time is not on the side of Creighton. Starting a winning streak will boost up where they will be in NCAA tournament if they do well in the Big East Tournament, but things can go either way in the Big East.
