Princeton at St. Joe's -4 O/U 152.5
Recommendation: St. Joe's
St. Joe's biggest knock this season has been its inability to hit from three with a current mark of 26.8%. Considering they shot 30% last season I don't expect a big improvement but what's apparent is this squad's overall offensive acumen is vastly improved. James Demery, Isaiah Miles, and Aaron Brown all shot below 45% from two last season but are a combined 84-of-137 61% through seven games. And the schedule doesn't come up light with three games against defensive stalwarts Florida, Old Dominion, and Villanova. It's a positive sign for a squad that was one of the least efficient offenses in the A-10 last season. Princeton meanwhile is 4-1 but its schedule does come up light with all four wins coming against low-tier competition. Last time out against Stony Brook, the Tigers were handled rather easily, 91-77. The Seawolves dominated the paint with a +13 rebounding advantage and a 63% mark from two. St. Joe's doesn't have a lot of size but they have rangy athletes who can defend both the paint and recover to the perimeter which is key considering Princeton's offense revolves around the three-point shot. Should be a competitive game as we side the short home favorite.
