Ivy League Tournament Preview

You could get weird and take Penn or Cornell here. You don’t need a ton of chaos in a small bracket like this to get one of them home. I crossed Cornell off pretty quickly based on their defense and Penn on their price. I think you could definitely get a bigger payout with a moneyline rollover with the Quakers.

That leaves the favorites. I think the value is in Princeton, but my dumb brain would rather have the winner. You can point to the earlier matchup between the top seeds where Princeton lead by nearly 20 in the second half and loss as a positive for the Tigers but, I choose to view it as a negative. Yale sleepwalked through three quarters of a game and turned it on like the Kansas City Chiefs with a scoreboard deficit to complete the season sweep.

Ivy League Tournament Prediction

Best offense, best defense, best track record in tournament play.

My Bet: Yale +105
