Georgetown’s best player, Otto Porter, combined for just 20 points and grabbed only 8 rebounds in the two games against Cincinnati last season. He comes into tonight’s game with an overall average of 18.6 points a game plus 9 rebounds per games over his last nine outings.

The line currently has Cincinnati favored at home by 3 ½ points with the total sitting on just 117. Smart money is taking the Hoyas, the road ‘dog, plus the points in this matchup. The total will make winners of those who take the over.
