The Princeton Tigers and Brown Bears meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Pizzitola Sports Center.

The Princeton Tigers look for a victory after winning seven of their last eight games. The Princeton Tigers are averaging 70.5 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Devin Cannady is averaging 19.5 points and 6.2 rebounds while Myles Stephens is averaging 13.9 points and 6.6 rebounds. Richmond Aririguzoh is the third double-digit scorer and Jaelin Llewellyn is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Princeton Tigers are shooting 31.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The Princeton Tigers are allowing 30.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.5 rebounds per game. The Princeton Tigers have won five of their last six road games.

The Brown Bears could use a victory after losing four of their last five games. The Brown Bears are averaging 72 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 68.3 points on 41 percent shooting. Desmond Cambridge is averaging 16.5 points and 3.5 rebounds while Tamenang Choh is averaging 12.3 points and 3.3 assists. Obi Okolie is the third double-digit scorer and Brandon Anderson is grabbing 1.9 rebounds. The Brown Bears are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 68 percent from the free throw line. The Brown Bears are allowing 28.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.1 rebounds per game. The Brown Bears have won six of their last eight home games.

The Tigers are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bears are 6-17 ATS in their last 23 Saturday games, 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 home games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Tigers are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Brown and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 19-7 in Bears last 26 overall. The under is 5-0 in Tigers last 5 overall.

The Princeton Tigers have beaten up on the Brown Bears over the years and enter this contest in better form yet again. While Brown has been solid at home this season, it's lost four of its last five games and is losing those games by an average of eight points while shooting just 37.9 percent from the field. The Princeton Tigers are one of the hotter teams in the Ivy League and have had no problem winning on the road this season. We're getting a free bucket with the better team in better form. I can't pass this up.

Pick:
Princeton +1.5
