College Basketball Best Bets: Tail These Two College Basketball Picks on Friday

Brown vs Princeton Prediction

Click here for Brown vs Princeton odds

Princeton is one of the better teams out of the Ivy League this season as they come into this game with a 7-2 conference record and are 17-5 overall. They have mainly won games this season due to their high-powered and efficient offense.

They are currently ranked 11th in offensive effective field goal percentage, 17th in lowest turnover percentage, 19th in offensive 2-point percentage, and 26th in the nation in 3-point shooting so they are very efficient from all levels of the court.

Brown has somewhat struggled on defense this season as they are ranked 232nd in defensive effective FG%, 218th in 2-point%, and 227th in defensive 3-point%. They have also struggled to rebound the basketball as they are currently last in the Ivy League in defensive rebounding percentage.

Princeton is a team who loves to hit the offensive glass as they are first in the conference in offensive rebounding percentage so I believe they will have a huge edge on the glass tonight. They had a come from behind victory in their first matchup with Brown but failed to cover the spread. I think they will be able to channel that momentum and confidence into a strong 1H performance tonight so I am rolling with Princeton 1H ML at -123 for one of my most confident picks tonight.

Green Bay vs IPFW Prediction

Green Bay vs IPFW odds

Green Bay is one of the worst teams in the Horizon League and has been one of the worst offensive teams in the nation. They are currently ranked in the bottom 300 in nearly every major offensive and defensive category, so they aren't much better on defense either.

This is not good news for Green Bay as IPFW has surprisingly been one of the better defensive teams in their conference this season. IPFW is currently ranked first in the Horizon League in adjusted defensive efficiency, defensive turnover percentage, steal percentage and defensive rebounding percentage. This means they force a lot of live ball turnovers and do not allow their opponents to get many offensive rebounds for extra possessions.

On the other side of the ball, IPFW has been slowly improving each game offensively as they are currently ranked third in their conference in offensive effective field goal percentage, third in 2-point percentage, and fourth in 3-point shooting.

They have also been playing much better as of late as they have scored at least 70 points in their last five games and went 5-0 straight up in those games as well. The bottom line for me here is that Green Bay just does not have the athleticism of offensive firepower to keep up in this game.

IPFW is the much more talented team who is not in contention for the Horizon League title and do not see a letdown from them tonight. IPFW has started games very well this season and they are coming off an emotional 3OT win vs Cleveland St so I believe they will be able to channel some of that momentum into a strong 1H performance tonight, so I am rolling with IPFW 1H -2.5 at -110 for one of my most confident picks tonight.
