Sunday, March 11, 2018
TV: ESPN2, 12:00 p.m. ET
Who Oddsmakers Like: According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Quakers are 2-point favorites to beat the Crimson, who also opened at many online books as a 2-point underdog. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 135 but was bet down to 132.
Who Public Bettors Like: Pennsylvania. As of Sunday morning, 75% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Quakers to cover the 2-point spread. Meanwhile, 51% of the betting tickets are on the over.
Who We Like: The Quakers have been a bad bet in this series, failing to cover the spread in eight of their last 10 meetings with the Crimson. Penn has also failed to cover the number in five of its last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record. On the other side, the Crimson are 25-7-2 against the spread in their last 34 Ivy League games and are 23-7-1 against the number in their last 31 games coming off a win. Even though Penn will benefit from playing on its home floor, Harvard's Seth Towns should take over this game at some point.
