Georgetown Hoyas vs Villanova Wildcats 1/16/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Georgetown Hoyas will go against the Villanova Wildcats in NCAAB action in Finneran Pavilion, PA, on Monday, January 16, 2023, at 12:00 PM ET.


In the first two games of the season, Georgetown defeated two inferior opponents, but since then, it did not manage to win three games in a row.


In actuality, the Hoyas only triumphed in three games—against La Salle, UMBC, and Siena—since their 2-0 start.


Since beating Siena on December 7, they dropped all eight of their games, including all seven of their Big East contests.


Georgetown’s most recent game, last Tuesday, ended in a 66-51 loss to Seton Hall. The Hoyas suffered a Big East record-tying 27 straight regular-season losses.


They were not making good shots this season, as evidenced by their 281st-ranked effective field goal %. (47.9).


Although Georgetown boasts a low turnover rate and strong offensive rebounding percentages, these factors were not enough to compensate for their subpar shooting statistics.


In this duel, the Hoyas will again enjoy the height advantage. They are up against a valiant Villanova defense that ranks No. 251 in turnover rate and No. 249 in field goal percentage.


Georgetown’s second-year guard Primo Spears averages 15.3 points, 5.1 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per contest.


  • The Georgetown University Hoyas are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 8 of Georgetown University’s last 11 matches. 
  • The University Hoyas are 0-8 SU in their last 8 matches.

Georgetown Hoyas vs Villanova Wildcats Predictions 1/16/2023


This year, Villanova struggled to compete with strong opposition. The Wildcats dropped five of their first six matches after dropping four straight contests at the end of November before sweeping their subsequent five.


They only managed one victory in that time against Georgetown two weeks ago. Following that, they suffered three straight defeats, each by a score of 10 points or less, against then-No. 18 Xavier, DePaul, and Butler.


Justin Moore missed the entire season due to an Achilles injury, and Jordan Longino recently had a left leg injury, leaving Kyle Neptune, the team’s first-year head coach, with a severely diminished roster.


As the No. 29 team in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency rankings, the Wildcats depend heavily on their offense to win games. With a success rate of 84.3%, they are the best free-throw shooting team in NCAA basketball.


Villanova also has a 2.-point field goal percentage of 54.3% and commits few turnovers. The Wildcats may improve their offensive rebounding, as well as their 32.9 percent 3-point shooting rate.


A Georgetown defense that ranks outside the top 240 in terms of rebounding, turnover rate, and field goal percentage will be their opponent.


Leading Villanova with 16.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game is senior guard Caleb Daniels. Also scoring in double figures are Eric Dixon (16.5), Cam Whitmore (13.1), and Brandon Slater (10.7).


  • The Villanova Wildcats are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches. 
  • The Wildcats are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • Villanova is 17-3 SU in their last 20 matches at home.

Georgetown Hoyas vs Villanova Wildcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Villanova Wildcats.
