Great Saturday college Basketball betting action starts at noon Saturday as Georgetown and Syracuse renew their long-standing rivalry, each attempting to get back on the winning track.   This is Carrie Stroup reporting for Gambling911.com and I will be with you for the entire weekend covering all the great sports betting excitement including odds on the Daytona 500. 

What a difference a month makes! Exactly four weeks ago this Saturday, Syracuse went to Georgetown and each team was ranked in the Top 12 in the country. Now, a multitude of losses later, each is trying to regain confidence to make a big push into March.

For the Hoyas (13-9, 6-11-1 ATS), it's about getting the ball in the hands of guard Jessie Sapp and freshman center Greg Monroe. Each has been more of the playmaker needed to make the G-Town offense run properly.

If this doesn't happen, the offense breaks down. Another contributing factor to failures is the lack of defensive rebounding block-outs, which has allowed a bevy of points. Georgetown is only 2-9 ATS in Big East play.

When Syracuse's (18-7, 9-12 ATS) team is ready and emotionally involved, they are a load, but too often this team is derailed by misfortune, be it injuries or of their own doings like free throw shooting.

Defensively all season, Syracuse has not been reliable, allowing 70.8 points per game and they are in scheduling gauntlet right now, after playing at Villanova and Connecticut.

The ‘Cuse is 14-2 and 6-6 ATS at the Carrier Dome this year and 7-1 and 5-3 ATS versus Georgetown in upstate New York. The Hoyas are 1-9-1 ATS 1-9-1 ATS since upsetting Connecticut on December 29th.
