Lehigh vs. Colgate Prediction and Odds (Go Under in Patriot League Conference Semifinals)

So far during the Patriot League Conference Tournament semifinals, everything has been clear as all four seeded players have advanced for the conference semifinals. As games are played on campus, the tournament has been spread out, with the championship game taking place on Wednesday, March 9th.

Tonight’s first semi-final continues in Hamilton, NY as the No. 1-seeded Colgate Raiders host the No. 4-seeded Lehigh Mountain Hawks.

Lehigh was one of two squads who gave Colgate a loss earlier this season; all the way back to January 4th in an 85-81 game. The Raiders defeated them 78-62 in the rematch at home.

How will the rubber match go this afternoon? Here are the latest odds at WynnBET Sportsbook:

The Under made a notable move for tonight’s semi-final game as the opening line of 147 is up two points since then and three points at several other sports bets.

While it’s never a good idea to overreact immediately to line movement, here are a few reasons why the under was already in play.

Both teams have made significant progress in their defense in recent games. Lehigh’s defensive rating has jumped a full 2.3 points, going from the 30th to the 45th percentile in the last five vias CBB Analytics. Ditto for Colgate, which has gone from a season defensive ranking of 100.9 (60th percentile) to 93.7 (95th percentile) in the last five.

Neither of these two teams play with much pace, as both are mid-table to below-table in terms of team possession per game.

The Raiders have a very solid offense, ranked 85th in KenPom-adjusted offensive efficiency, but look for defense to make it in the semifinals today.

SKINNY: UNDER 145 (-110)
