Dartmouth Big Green Rundown

Princeton vs Dartmouth Prediction

Princeton picked up a strong road win over Harvard to keep pacing with Cornell atop the conference, and there’s little reason for them to slow down here against a last-placed Dartmouth team. The Tigers dominated the first matchup back in January (76-58), and while this leg could flow a bit differently for them on the road, they’ve got their eyes on a bigger prize, and we should see another sharp effort from them. Now with the margin sitting a bit massive for a road favorite, and both of the previous matchups in Hanover resulting in high-scoring battles, I’d rather test the magic number for this one. Back the Over for this Ivy League contest.
