*Odds as of Wednesday morning according to BetMGM.
The Princeton Tigers travel to New York to take on Hofstra on Wednesday night.
It’s a non-conference matchup that maybe 4,000 people will watch, but that’s even better for you, the reader, because the line still hasn’t moved even with the sharp action and big money that’s on one side of this game.
In other words, the spread for the team in question hasn’t changed despite the fact that experts are hammering it because of the low magnitude of this game.
Princeton (5-2) have had a decent non-conference start to the season and have nabbed wins against two good teams — South Carolina (ranked 87th in KenPom’s rankings) and Oregon State (ranked 112th). The Tigers themselves are ranked 152nd overall.
The Tigers have suffered losses to undefeated Minnesota (98th) in double overtime and Monmouth (164th).
Meanwhile, Hofstra (3-4) are ranked higher on KenPom’s rankings at 136th on account of their 82nd-ranked offense.
Despite their relatively poor record, Hofstra has played some very good teams and stayed competitive in those matchups. The Pride have lost to No. 4 ranked Houston (according to KenPom) in overtime and No. 45 ranked Maryland by two points. They also lost to OK teams in No. 73 ranked Richmond and 123rd ranked Iona, too.
The flip side of that is that Hofstra has only beaten relatively poor squads. Its three wins have come against Duquesne (195th), Detroit Mercy (231st) and Molloy (unranked).
