Betting Odds

Point Spread: 
Princeton -3.5

The Princeton Tigers head to Newman Arena in Ithaca, New York on Friday, February 16, 2018, to battle Ivy League rival the Cornell Big Red. The oddsmaker lists the visiting Tigers as a -3.5 road favorite with the total line set at 145 points.

Princeton dropped their latest Ivy match on the road against Dartmouth 72-56. The loss by the Tigers was their fourth straight up after stringing together four consecutive wins. Their lack of scoring in recent games has been their undoing averaging 57.3 points per game over their last three contests.

Princeton on the season is 3-5 straight up and bankroll crushing 2-6 versus the point spread line in conference play. On the road, they're 0-3 SU and against the betting line.

Guard Devin Cannady is the leading scorer for the Tigers averaging 17.3 points per game and Guard Amir Bell leads the team in assists.

Cornell was on the road in their latest contest where they came up on the losing end of a 74-65 score to Yale. The nine-point victory by the host Bulldogs had Cornell bettors tearing up their tickets as a +6.5 point spread favorite, and the 139 points scored by the two clubs fell well short of the 152.5 closing total line.

In Ivy League action this season Cornell has a won/loss record of 3-5 overall with a 4-4 ATS mark. As a host, they're a matching 2-1 straight up and 2-1 versus the point spread line.

Cornell’s success is highly dependent on Guard Matt Morgan who leads the team in scoring (22.8 PPG) and assists (3.3 PPG). Forward Stone Gettings is another key member of the club with team highs in rebounds (6.7 PPG) and FG percentage (49.4%).

Princeton at Cornell Prediction 2/16/18

Sure Princeton has had their way against the host winning nine of the last ten played overall and got the money in seven of those games, but this is a different team this season. They've lost all three of their road conference games and meet a team that has only a three-point loss to Harvard from having an undefeated home record. I believe that the Big Red can pull off the mild upset here making taking the 3.5 points a highly likely winning proposition.
