There is one college pick tonight.
#1: Take Princeton -3 spread against Yale for 3% of the bankroll.
The Princeton Tigers have been one of the hottest teams in the country that no one is really talking about and that is likely due to the fact that they play in the Ivy League Conference. That being said, what they have managed to do should not be overlooked. They come into this rivalry matchup with Yale having won 11 straight games, including going a perfect 8-0 in the conference. They are head and shoulders the best team in the conference and we believe that will be on full display for tonight’s matchup.
The Tigers currently hold a 2-game lead over their next closest competition, Harvard, and their opponents tonight, Yale. Princeton has been known to play in closely contested matchups. They have only blown one team out over their last six games, and five of the six were decided by nine or less points. That being said, only 2 victories of their last 11 have been by less than 3 points which are pretty good odds that they will cover the number tonight.
Many are saying that Princeton is 'due' for a loss, however we certainly don't follow that method of thinking. The Tigers are the hands-down best team in the Ivy League Conference and already hold a 66-58 victory over their opponents from earlier in the season. This game is likely to be close in the early going, however Princeton has shown their ability to make the critical plays when it matters most and that's what we expect them to do in this contest. Yale will have their chances, but will ultimately fall short as free throws at the end of this contest give the Tigers a big road win and cover.
