Line 1: Davidson ML (-600) vs. St. Joseph’s
Line 2: Princeton ML (-135) vs. Harvard
Parlay Odds: (+100)
Reasoning: On one of the slowest basketball betting nights of this Winter, we are rolling with two home favorites to cash in our Friday Parlay. With the NBA All Star break in full swing, and most big time college basketball matchups being played this weekend, we are left with some mid-major action on this Friday.
The first line of our parlay relies on the Davison Wildcats to take care of business at home against the St. Joe’s Hawks. Davison has a perfect 11-0 record this year on their home floor, and will look for that trend to continue against a struggling St. Joseph’s squad. The Hawks are below .500, and are a bottom feeder in the Atlantic 10. This pick is a no brainer tonight, hints why the Wildcats are (-600) on the ML. Expect Davison to burry the Hawks in this one, completing part 1 of Friday’s parlay.
Secondly, a premier Ivy League matchup, as the Harvard Crimson travel to New Jersey to take on the Princeton Tigers. In a game that has heavy impact on the conference standings, both teams will look to make jump in the right direction. The Tigers are a very well balanced team, with fair play on both the offensive and defensive ends. In this game, I expect Princeton to end their two game skid, and beat a Harvard team that has been brutal on the road this season with a record of 3-6. Also, expect Princeton guard Devin Cannady to get buckets when it matters most and will the Tigers to victory. Cannady is averaging almost 20 PPG, and is regarded as one of the Ivy Leagues best players. Although this is going to be a close one, let the Tigers pull off the home win to complete the parlay.
