The Big Red are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Tigers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. Ivy League and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Big Red are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Princeton, 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

Princeton is a balanced basketball team that should be able to take advantage of Cornell's suspest defense. Princeton has also won five straight games against the Big Red, and none of those games were all that close. At home, give me the Tigers by double digits.

Pick:
Princeton Tigers -12
