Princeton (+6.5) over Missouri

New Jersey’s Tigers have been at their best when the least has been expected of them.

This season, Princeton is 5-1 against the spread as an underdog, most recently pulling outright upsets over Yale in the Ivy League title game and the stunner over Arizona in the first round.

The past two wins have come against the best two defenses and rebounding units Princeton played this season.
