Ivy League play continues as the Penn Quakers take on the Brown Bears in Pizzitola Sports Center in Providence.
Penn is coming off a solid 82-63 win over Cornell, while the Brown Bears are coming off their third straight loss, a three-point loss to Dartmouth.
The Penn Quakers are a team that struggles to score the ball. Penn averages just 67.2 points per game, putting it 301st in the nation. The Quakers have just two players who average double-figures in points.
Freshman forward AJ Brodeur is the team’s top scorer.
He averages 14.3 points, along with 6.6 rebounds per game. He also shoots 52.5% from the field but shoots very poorly from the line, at just 58.5%.
Senior guard Matt Howard is the other player averaging double-figures. He scores about 11.8 points per game on 48.7% shooting. He also pulls down about 6.9 rebounds per contest.
Defensively, Penn has been pretty good all year. The team gives up just 67.7 points per game and holds opponents to around 41% shooting from the field.
However, the offense has let the team down on several occasions, with two of the last three losses being a result of not breaking the 60-point mark.
Offensively, the Bears are one of the best in the Ivy League. The team averages 77.0 points per game, with the scoring led by guard Steven Spieth.
Defensively, however, Brown hasn’t been great. The Bears give up 77.7 points per game and has yet to hold an Ivy League squad under 70 points this season.
The good news for this matchup is that Penn can’t score and, if Brown can get the offense going, the Bears should have a good shot at a win here. Spieth will need to play some great basketball in this game.
Steven Spieth continues being the best player this year year for the Bears offensively. He averages 16.6 points on 49.2% shooting and grabs about six rebounds per game.
He has 20 or more points in each of his last three games.
The Bears need to find a solid section option to help out Spieth because, despite his 20 point performances, Brown has lost all three of its recent games.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Penn is 2-3 ATS in the last five games
- Brown is 1-4 ATS in the last five games
Free Penn Quakers vs. Brown Bears NCAAB Prediction:
Brown’s defense has to be better. The good news for the Bears is that Penn is poor when it comes to scoring. With a big performance from Spieth, I see Brown getting the W here.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Brown +1
I like Brown to cover here. Spieth will have another 20-plus-point performance and lead his team to victory in this one.
