In that Friday game against Yale, Penn lost a squeaker 80-79. The top scorers for the Quakers were guards Darnell Foreman and Caleb Wood, who each tallied 21 points. Foreman also led Penn in rebounding with five on the night.
Over on the Brown side, they’re currently 11-15 this season. The Bears have lost their last five straight games, and that follows a period in which they lost three out of five stretching from January into February.
In the Bears’ most recent loss Friday versus Princeton 78-63, the team’s leading scorer was Obi Okolie, who managed 17 points and nine rebounds with three assists and two steals. Forward Joshua Howard provided 10 points off the bench.
The Quakers are 5-1 ATS in their last six versus a team with a losing straight-up record and 4-1 ATS in their last five versus a team with a winning home record. The over is 10-3 in Penn’s last 13 road games and 12-5 in their last 17 Saturday games.
Meanwhile, the Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last five versus a team with a winning straight-up record and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games. The over is 5-2 in Brown’s last seven home games and 5-2 in their last seven Saturday games.
Penn has had a pretty good run going lately, but that road loss against Yale is a downer coming into this matchup. The last time these teams met up, the Quakers won 95-90 in OT at home. I don't see Brown putting up that much of a fight this time though, so I’m sticking with Penn.
