$100
Play Type: Premium

Harvard @ Georgetown 7:00 PM ET

Game# 723-724

Play On: Harvard +6.5 (5*)

This is a very experienced Harvard team that won’t be in awe of playing on the road against a major conference opponent. They’re coming off a disappointing 97-85 loss to Yale in the Ivy League Tournament Final. However, Harvard is 4-0 SU&ATS in their last 4 games following a loss. The Crimson is also an extremely profitable 7-1 ATS this season in true road games as an underdog of 9.5 or less.

Georgetown has been plagued by inconsistency this season. You never know what Hoyas team is going to show up. The one who’s beaten the likes of Marquette and Villanova, or a team that recently (3/6) lost to DePaul by 32. Georgetown has lost 5 times at home this season and 4 of those defeats have come in the last 9. Bet on Harvard plus the points for a 5* wager.

SERVICE BIO

Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 15 years. In professional sports handicapper Ron Raymond’s 2008 published book “50 Greatest Sports Betting Secrets” he probably says it best. “One of the most underrated handicappers in our industry and probably one of the sharpest ones I know is Ross Benjamin.” 

One of Ross’ often used phrases when speaking publicly, “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”. Ross is 61 years old and has been directly involved in many capacities of the sports gaming industry for the last 31 years. However there is nothing he enjoys more than the challenge of picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball.
