As you all know you can get a lot of love in Vegas if you've got a bunch of cash, but the oddsmakers aren't looking too fondly upon the Hoyas just two days before the tipoff of the 2009-2010 season at Tulane.

According to this Big East preview, Georgetown is currently at 8-1 to win the Big East behind Villanova (3-1), Louisville (7-2), West Virginia (4-1), YouCon (4-1), Notre Dame (7-1), and the Team That Lost to Le Moyne (7-1).

The preview lumps Georgetown with the rest of the field:

Georgetown (8/1), Pittsburgh (15/1), Cincinnati (30/1), St. Johns (30/1), Seton Hall (40/1), Marquette (45/1), Rutgers (45/1), DePaul (100/1), Providence (45/1) and South Florida (30/1) are the rest of this mega, 16-team conference.

Georgetown’s lower odds are somewhat surprising given its 20th ranking in the AP.

 

In other odds news, the Hoyas are currently at 60-1 to win the NCAA Tournament.

Casually.
