The second game of the NCAAB Ivy League Tournament semifinal will take place on Saturday, March 11, and here you can read the best Quakers vs. Tigers betting pick and odds.

Princeton is hoping to beat Pennsylvania for the second time in a week when they meet at Jadwin Gymnasium. The Tigers are 3-point favorites on MyBookie Sportsbook, while the total is set at 146.5 points. These Ivy League rivals have faced two times this season, and the Tigers lead the series 2-0.

Quakers’ winning streak snapped in Princeton

The Pennsylvania Quakers (17-12, 15-10-3 ATS) were in a fantastic run of eight consecutive wins, but they couldn’t make it nine in a row after losing to the Princeton Tigers on the road. The Quakers had a 15-point lead at halftime and dropped a 17-point lead in the second half as the game went to overtime and Princeton won 77-69. Pennsylvania shot 38.2% from the field and made seven three-pointers opposite the Tigers’ nine, but scored only 24 points in the second half.

Junior guard Jordan Dingle led the Quakers with a game-high 28 points and four rebounds. Max Martz added 13 points and six boards and Nick Spinoso had 11 points and four rebounds. Penn’s bench chipped in just six points opposite Princeton’s 27, which was a difference in this loss.

Tigers won the Ivy League title

The Princeton Tigers (19-8, 13-12-0 ATS) completed a big comeback to defeat the Pennsylvania Quakers and win the Ivy League regular-season title. The Tigers trailed by 17 points in the second half but managed to erase that deficit and even had a chance to win in regulation, but Matt Allocco missed a jumper. Princeton did play better in overtime and celebrated a 77-69 victory. The Tigers shot 37.5% from the floor, and although they weren’t accurate enough, their bench propelled them to a victory.

Freshman forward Caden Pierce led the Tigers with a career-high 17 points and game-high ten rebounds off the bench – it was his fifth double-double of the season. Tosan Evbuomwan contributed 15 points, seven boards, and game-high three steals, Ryan Langborg scored 13 points, while Matt Allocco finished with 12 points and six rebounds.

  • 4-1 ATS in the last five games vs. a team with a winning straight-up record

Pennsylvania Quakers vs. Princeton Tigers Pick

Princeton already beat the Quakers twice this season and the Tigers won each of the previous eight H2H duels. I am backing them to do it again on Saturday; after all, they will have a home-court advantage. The Tigers lost just once in the last 15 H2Hs to Pennsylvania at home. While both teams are very close when it comes to offense and points scored per game, the Tigers do have a stronger defense that allows 68.6 ppg opposite Penn’s 71.8 ppg, and I am backing it to prevail here.

Pick: Take the Tigers at -1.5 (-133)

The Total

Princeton scores 76.0 points per game and Pennsylvania averages 75.1 points per contest. The Quakers’ offense improved a lot recently, but they managed to score just 69 points (overtime included) the last time they met the Tigers. I am going with the home side’s defense to control the situation here, so I don’t expect a high-scoring affair. Under is 6-0 in the Quakers’ last six games following a straight-up loss; Under is 5-0 in the Tigers’ previous five vs. a team with a winning straight-up record, while Under is 4-1 in Pennsylvania’s last five games following an ATS loss.

Pick: Go Under 147.5 points (-125)
