The Penn Quakers and the Cornell Big Red meet in college basketball action from Bartels Hall on Saturday.

The Penn Quakers will look to add to their current three-game winning streak after an 81-66 win over Columbia last time out. Jordan Dingle leads the Quakers in scoring with 19.4 PPG along with 2.3 APG as the lone double-digit scorer for Penn so far this season. Clark Slajchert has 9.9 PPG while Jonah Charles has 8.1 PPG and Max Martz has 9.3 PPG and 5.1 RPG as well this season. As a team, Penn is averaging 71.4 PPG on 44.4% shooting from the field, 33.4% from three and 73.2% from the foul line while allowing 74.2 PPG on 44.8% shooting from the field and 34% from three this season.

The Cornell Big Red will look to extend their own three-game win streak after an 88-83 win over Princeton last time out. Jordan Jones leads the Big Red in scoring with 12.7 PPG along with 3 RPG as the lone double-digit scorer for Cornell so far this season. Chris Manon also has 9.5 PPG and Kobe Dickson has a team-high 4.9 RPG and 3 APG to lead the Big Red on the glass and in assists this season. As a team, Cornell is averaging 81.7 PPG on 47.2% shooting from the field, 35% from three and 70.7% from the foul line while allowing 75.4 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field and 32.1% from three this season.

Penn is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Cornell is 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games overall and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.

I get the allure of points with Penn here as the Quakers have really been playing well as of late, but it’s just so hard to go against Cornell when the Big Red continue to cover at home and add to their solid ATS record on the year. Give me Cornell laying the bucket at home here.
