The Dartmouth Big Green and Cornell Big Red meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Newman Arena.

The Dartmouth Big Green could use a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Dartmouth Big Green are averaging 73 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 70.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Chris Knight is averaging 15.4 points and 2.5 assists while Brendan Barry is averaging 13.4 points and 3.4 rebounds. James Foye is the third double-digit scorer and Ian Sistare is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Dartmouth Big Green are shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.2 percent from the free throw line. The Dartmouth Big Green are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34 rebounds per game. The Dartmouth Big Green haven’t won a road game since December 17.

The Cornell Big Red could use a win after losing five of their last six games. The Cornell Big Red are averaging 67.7 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 73 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Matt Morgan is averaging 22.3 points and 2.8 assists while Jimmy Boeheim is averaging 11 points and 3.2 rebounds. Josh Warren is the third double-digit scorer and Terrance McBride is grabbing two rebounds. The Cornell Big Red are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 71.1 percent from the free throw line. The Cornell Big Red are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.5 rebounds per game. The Cornell Big Red have won four of their last six home games.

The Big Green are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The Big Red are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. Ivy League and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Big Green are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the underdog is 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Big Red last 7 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Big Green last 5 overall.

Cornell has won each of the last five meetings against Dartmouth and seven of the last nine meetings overall. The Dartmouth Big Green are losing on the road by an average of 7.9 points while allowing 48.6 percent shooting. The Cornell Big Red obviously enter this game in poor form, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 16 points. However, in a near toss-up, I'll give the edge to the home team, especially with how horrible Dartmouth has been on the road. 

Pick:
Cornell -1.5
