The Cornell Big Red are 5-6 this season and they have lost their last two games. Cornell is averaging 72.7 points and they are shooting 41.7 percent while defensively they are allowing 82.5 points and their opponents are shooting 46.1 percent. Robert Hatter leads the Big Red averaging 19.7 points per game. Matt Morgan is averaging 13.9 points, Darryl Smith is averaging 9.2 points, and David Onuorah is averaging 5.9 points and 8.1 rebounds. Cornell has played a rough schedule with the bulk of their losses coming to teams from the big conferences.
St. Peter’s is 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games, 4-0 against the spread against the Ivy League, and 6-2 against the spread against a team with a losing record. Cornell is 6-2 against the spread against the MAAC, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games, and 0-8-1 against the spread in their last nine road games.
Cornell is well prepped for this one and they have lost primarily to the better teams and I expect the Big Red to at least cover.
