The Brown Bears and Penn Quakers meet Saturday in college basketball action at The Palestra.

The Brown Bears look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Brown Bears are averaging 72.9 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 69.2 points on 41.8 percent shooting. Desmond Cambridge is averaging 16 points and 3.8 rebounds while Tamenang Choh is averaging 13.1 points and 3.2 assists. Obi Okolie is the third double-digit scorer and Brandon Anderson is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Brown Bears are shooting 33.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Brown Bears are allowing 30 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game. The Brown Bears have split their last six road games.

The Penn Quakers look for a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Penn Quakers are averaging 72 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 69.3 points on 44.1 percent shooting. AJ Brodeur is averaging 17.1 points and 3.7 assists while Devon Goodman is averaging 13.8 points and 3.2 rebounds. Antonio Woods is the third double-digit scorer and Michael Wang is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Penn Quakers are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 63.4 percent from the free throw line. The Penn Quakers are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.4 rebounds per game. The Penn Quakers have won three of their last five home games.

The Bears are 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. Ivy League and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Quakers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 vs. Ivy League, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bears are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Pennsylvania and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Quakers last 5 home games. The under is 19-7 in Bears last 26 overall.

Penn has won five of the last six meetings against Brown, and most of those games were won rather comfortably. Penn is winning at home this season by an average of 6.5 points while shooting nearly 47 percent from the field. The Brown Bears are playing well heading into this contest, but they don't shoot the ball consistently enough to hang with the Quakers if they're making their shots. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.

Penn -5.5
