What to Know
The Pennsylvania Quakers will stay at home another game and welcome the Saint Joseph's Hawks at 8:30 p.m. ET Nov. 30 at Palestra. The Quakers are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
While not quite a landslide, the game between UPenn and the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens on Sunday was still a pretty decisive one as UPenn wrapped it up with an 86-73 victory at home.
As for the Hawks, it looks like they got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. The matchup between Saint Joseph's and the South Florida Bulls last week was not particularly close, with Saint Joseph's falling 75-62. The top scorer for Saint Joseph's was guard Lynn Greer III (15 points).
The Quakers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
UPenn's win brought them up to 5-4 while the Hawks' defeat pulled them down to 2-3. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: UPenn is stumbling into the contest with the 52nd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 74 on average. Saint Joseph's has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 51st worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 66.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
