NCAA basketball analysis & betting – Princeton vs. Yale odds & tips

Princeton v Yale

The red-hot Princeton Tigers (12-5) will put their perfect Ivy League record on the line heading to Yale (13-4) to take on a Bulldogs squad that has won nine of their last 10 games.

This looks like a fascinating contest between these Ivy League rivals — both games between them last season went to overtime.

The Tigers are the only team in the Ivy League that does not have a conference loss and they can really get a leg up in conference play with a road win in their game. In the middle of last month leading scorer Devin Cannady was suspended indefinitely, but the Tigers kept on rolling. They are not a team that can light it up, but they have a solid defense.

Yale is a half game back of Princeton in Ivy League play and they and Harvard are 3-1 in conference play. In their season finale last season, they beat Princeton in a 94-90 OT shootout and this season their offense is the strength of the team ranking 33rd in the nation in points per game.

Princeton Tigers vs. Yale Bulldogs betting prediction

Last season in the two encounters between these teams the results were split in two overtime thrillers.

Look for, kind of, the same thing to happen in this game. While it may not go to OT, it will be close and Yale at home will come through on offense and the Bulldogs will get the win and cover the spread as well.
