@SidekicksPicks CBB Play of the Day - 2/27

Princeton (13-11) vs. Harvard (20-5)

The Princeton Tigers travel to Boston to take on the Harvard Crimson for a 12:00 pm tip. Princeton is 20-5, 6-3 on the road. The Tigers are currently on a 5 game winning streak and have won 15 of their last 17 games. They are 4-1 in their last 5 road trips. Princeton caught a huge break yesterday with Yale losing to Cornell. They are now in 1st place in the Ivy League with a 10-2 conference record. A win today will seal the deal for the title!

Harvard is 13-11 overall, 9-4 at home. Harvard lost their last game to Princeton in a 74-67 ball game. Harvard is 4-6 in their last 10 games. They have won their last 2 home games, but are 2-3 in their last 5 home games. Harvard is 4th in the Ivy League with a 5-7 record.

Princeton Anaylsis

Princeton has one of the best scoring offenses in the country, averaging 80.3 ppg (11), 48.6 fg% (12), and 38.5% from 3 (10). They also grab a ton of offensive rebounds, averaging 34.1 per game (79). On the defensive side, they are very average, ranking mid 100s in just about every statistical category. Princeton’s offense typically travels well as there is no major drop off from production.

Harvard Analysis

Harvard has been a solid home team this season, but has not fared well against conference opponents. The Crimson averages 72.1 ppg, 43.4 fg%, and 33.3% from 3. On the defensive side, they surrender 68.6 ppg, allow teams to shoot 43.9%, and 36.8% from behind the arc.

Betting Trends

  • Tigers are 4-1 ats in their last 5 games
  • Tigers are 5-1 in their last 6 road games
  • Tigers are 9-2 ats in February
  • Crimson is 5-12 ats in their last 17 games
  • Crimson is 1-4 ats in their last 5 home games
  • Crimson is 3-11 ats in their last 14 games on Sunday

Sidekicks' Verdict

In recent head to head matchups, Harvard has had the upper hand. Traditionally, Harvard is a much better team than they are this season. Princeton has everything to play for in this one. I typically do not like to play back to back games vs the same opponent, but with a weak slate today and Princeton needing to win to clinch the Ivy League title, this is a game I’m excited for! Princeton should cover the spread and win on the road today.
