The Bears are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The Tigers are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. loss. The Bears are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Princeton.
The Brown Bears have either won or lost three of their last five games by four or less points. While the wins aren't there, Brown has been fighting hard and hasn't given up on the season just yet. With Princeton ATS record at home, I like the points here with the Bears.
