Princeton is +30 at Duke, Drexel is +14.5 at UCONN. We’ll walk both dogs.
The Pick: Princeton +35 and Drexel +19.5.
Thirty points in a college game is A LOT of points. Yes, Duke is almost assuredly going to beat the stuffing and stuffiness out of Princeton, especially on the boards, but the return of Princeton star freshman Jaelin Llewellyn from injury gives the Tigers three capable scorers and decent backcourt athleticism. And 30 points is A LOT. But it’s not as much as 35 so we’re going to take Princeton +35 and pair them with underdog Drexel at Connecticut. UCONN should have blown out Manhattan and didn’t and Drexel is coming off a good win at Quinnipiac. Drexel +19.5 looks enticing.
