The Princeton Tigers and Harvard Crimson meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Lavietes Pavilion.

The Princeton Tigers look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Princeton Tigers are averaging 70.2 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 68.6 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Devin Cannady is averaging 18.2 points and 5.8 rebounds while Myles Stephens is averaging 13.1 points and 6.4 rebounds. Richmond Aririguzoh is the third double-digit scorer and Jaelin Llewellyn is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Princeton Tigers are shooting 31.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Princeton Tigers are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Princeton Tigers have won six of their last eight road games.

The Harvard Crimson look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Harvard Crimson are averaging 72 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 70 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Chris Lewis is averaging 11.3 points and 4.4 rebounds while Noah Kirkwood is averaging 10.4 points and 1.7 assists. Justin Bassey is the third double-digit scorer and Danilo Djuricic is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Harvard Crimson are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 69.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Tigers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The Crimson are 30-13-2 ATS in their last 45 vs. Ivy League and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The Tigers are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Crimson last 4 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Tigers last 5 overall.

Four of the last six meetings between Princeton and Harvard have been decided by six or less points. Princeton is playing well at the moment, winning its last four and shooting 45 percent from the field in its last five games. Eight of Princeton's 12 covers have come on the road. The Harvard Crimson are just 5-9 ATS this season as a favorite and are winning their last five games by just an average of three points. I'll take a shot with the Princeton Tigers and the free buckets.

Pick:
Princeton +7
