I'm an NFL handicapper here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up. For Andrew Ortenberg media enquiries, please email

With the regular season over, March Madness is right around the corner. It’s one of the best events in all of sports, and a godsend for bettors. The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is especially fun to wager on, and as the tourney gets closer we’ll be bringing you everything you need to get ready. We’ll be taking a look at all of the teams one by one, and today we’re breaking down a team coming off a miracle run in the Big East Tournament, the Georgetown Hoyas.

Georgetown Hoyas prospects

Georgetown is coming off an incredible run where they won the Big East Tournament to clinch their March Madness spot. Patrick Ewing did a great job, but it’s hard not to feel like the run was a bit fluky. They’ve got good size, but they aren’t really elite at any one particular thing. Three of their top four scorers shoot 40.3 percent or less from the field, and they’re prone to scoring droughts. They’re also sloppy with the ball, turning it over more than 15 times per game. That’s not winning March basketball. A tough matchup with Colorado awaits in the Round of 64.
