3* on PRINCETON +7 (BH pt)
I really like Princeton to hang around with this Mizzou club Saturday night. They're the MUCH better defensive and rebounding team. Both clubs shoot the 3-ball and free throws well, so IMO this game comes down to the team who plays the better defense & the team who rebounds the ball better & in turn can limit 2nd chance points to their opponent. This Princeton team tied the rebound battle with a VERY good Arizona rebounding team & this Mizzou team is smaller & nowhere near as good pounding the boards. Zona is also a much better defensive team than Mizzou. Princeton has covered 5 straight games. Princeton is (4-1 ATS L/5) games vs teams with a winning % of .600 or greater. Missouri is (1-6 ATS L/7) tournament games. Mizzou have covered just once in their L/5 games following a ATS win. I really like Princeton to give these Tigers a serious battle and if Princeton can control the boards, like I expect them to, I feel strongly that Princeton has a good shot at an outright win. Anything over 2 possessions is very strong value for me & I'm on Princeton and the points in this match up.
