The Georgetown Hoyas (6-22, 0-17 Big East) and Seton Hall Pirates (18-9, 9-8) meet Wednesday in Newark, N.J. The contest at the Prudential Center is slated to tip off at 7 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Georgetown vs. Seton Hall odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.
Georgetown has reached the final week of the regular season without yet logging a Big East victory. The Hoyas are a poor-shooting, bad defensive team that hasn’t won since Dec. 15. Since that date, GU is 0-18, connecting on just 38.0% of its shots while allowing 79.9 points per contest.
The Pirates were ranked in the top-25 through much of the first half of the season. Seton Hall then went 3-5 over eight games in January. In February, SHU went 6-2; the Pirates closed out the month on a three-game win streak.

Georgetown at Seton Hall odds, lines, picks and predictions
Seton Hall 84, Georgetown 68
Peg SHU as being a just-over-90% proposition in this one. There is no leverage to be had on this price: AVOID.
Against the spread
Over the last nine games in this series, the favorite has gone 7-2 ATS.
And SETON HALL -13.5 (-108) is the call in this game. Look for the Pirates to have modest edges in rebounding and turnovers, but shooting — at both ends of the floor — is such an SHU advantage as to justify the two touchdowns here.
Shot analytics point to both teams being solid Over candidates of late. Neither has come through, though. Across the last four games for each, the Under has gone 3-1.
Just like shooters need to shoot, so too must bettors when they have a value margin. BACK THE OVER 146.5 (-115).
