The Georgetown Hoyas are betting favorites in college basketball picks and odds vs the Louisville Cardinals on Monday.

ESPN will feature a Big East battle on Monday evening when the #19 Louisville Cardinals travel to take on the #20 Georgetown Hoyas with a scheduled start time of 7:00pm EST. Following the Louisville vs Georgetown game, ESPN will also feature #8 Texas vs #11 Texas A&M at 9:00pm EST. Online sportsbooks have opened with Georgetown as a 4.5-point favorite in college basketball picks vs Georgetown with an over/under betting total of 143. Sportsbooks also favor the Hoyas at home -200 in money line college basketball odds vs the Cardinals +170 for Monday’s prime time game on ESPN.

The Cardinals head into tonight’s game with a record of 17-4 straight up, have gone 6-2 in Big East conference action and have won their last two games. Louisville defeated West Virginia in a 55-54 thriller last Wednesday and then followed that up with 79-78 double overtime win on the road vs the #5 Connecticut Huskies. The Cardinals took down UConn by 1-point and easily covered the spread as 5-point underdogs in college basketball picks to go 9-6 ATS for the season. Head coach Rick Pitino’s defense managed to limit Husky G Kemba Walker to only 20-points which is 4.2-points less than his average. Louisville C Gorgui Dieng is expected to be on the bench for tonight’s match-up vs Georgetown after landing on his head in the win vs Villanova.

Louisville will need to play a similar style of defensive without the 6-foot-10 Dieng on Monday night vs Hoya G Austin Freeman if they are to pull off the upset as underdogs in college basketball picks. Freeman has helped Georgetown to four straight victories by averaging 24.3-points during that span including 30-points in the 69-66 victory over #8 Villanova on Saturday. The Hoyas went on the road to record the 3-point win over the Wildcats and also won outright to cover the 4.5-point spread as sports betting underdogs in college basketball odds to go 12-7 ATS for the season. Georgetown his lit up the nets this season with a shooting percentage of .509, which includes the .522% performance vs Villanova on Saturday but only rank 50th overall in points per game at 75.6.
