Marquette vs. Georgetown odds, line, spread: 2021 Big East Tournament picks, predictions from proven model

The 2021 Big East Tournament tips off on Wednesday with a matchup between the eighth-seeded Georgetown Hoyas and ninth-seeded Marquette Golden Eagles at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Both the Hoyas (9-12) and Golden Eagles (13-13) are not considered candidates for at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament and would need to win the Big East Tournament — and the automatic bid that goes with it — in order to reach next week’s 68-team dance in Indiana. The winner of Wednesday’s game will face an ailing Villanova team that will be dealing with injuries to guards Collin Gillespie (knee, out for the season) and Justin Moore (ankle, doubtful).

Tip-off is set for 3 p.m. ET. The Golden Eagles are favored by 3.5-points in the latest Marquette vs. Georgetown odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 144.5.
