Pick Against The Line

The earlier match-up at the Jadwin Gymnasium resulted in a razor-tight 93-90 Princeton overtime win. Dartmouth shot 52% at Princeton as everything seemed to fall in. That percentage is way above their season average of 43.4%, and I believe the Tigers will be focused on keeping that closer to their average this time around. The Big Green are ice cold right now on offense scoring just 61 and 53 in two home games against Brown and Yale. Princeton averaged 76.4 PPG this season, but that number falls to 71.3 on the road. Take the UNDER 141.
