It’s the first night of the League back-to-backs and all the games are competitive
This weekend launches the Ivies back-to-back round robin and we’re going to give you eight teaser picks for you to pair however you like, depending on your team preferences, over/under preferences and more. Keep in mind you can’t tease the spread and the O/U in the same game (unless your book really likes you).
Pennsylvania - 5.5 @ CORNELL (138), 5 pm
When Penn (12-6, 0-2) plays well, it scores in bunches. Cornell (9-9, 1-1) has had a tougher time scoring but senior guard Matt Morgan can go off at any time.
Pick: Penn -.5 Over CORNELL and Under 143
Princeton -1.5 @ COLUMBIA (139.5), 7 pm
Even without senior guard Devin Cannady, the Tigers (10-5, 2-0) should have enough to beat a Mike Smith-less 6-10, 1-1 Columbia squad.
Pick: Princeton +3.5 Over COLUMBIA and Under 144.5
Brown -1 @ DARTMOUTH (145.5), 7pm
Brown (12-6, 0-2) was playing very well until they twice ran into the Yale buzzsaw. Dartmouth (10-8, 1-1) is coming off a surprising split with Harvard. Simply because Brown has been better against a better schedule, and it’s hard to see this Bears team starting out 0-3. . . .
Pick: Brown +4 Over Dartmouth and Under 150.5
Yale PICK ’EM @ HARVARD (144), 7 pm
Yale (12-3, 2-0) is looking like the team to beat. Harvard (8-7, 1-1) thinks it’s the team to beat and just got star guard Bryce Aiken back. But the Crimson have been out of sync this season and Yale can match their size up front.
Pick: Yale +5 Over Harvard and Under 149.
