Harvard -2 @ BROWN (133), 7 pm; Dartmouth +9.5 @ YALE (149), 7 pm; Cornell +7 @ PRINCETON (136.5) 8 pm; Columbia +7.5 @ PENN (141), 8 pm
The Ivy mix-and-match teaser begins its fourth weekend with a 33-15 record after three weekends of back-to-back action. Remember, you can’t tease the spread and the over Over/Under from the same game.
Harvard -2 @ BROWN (133), 7 pm. Brown (15-9, 3-5) has a big home game tonight against a surging Harvard (13-8, 6-2). Harvard still has a chance to catch Yale for first. Brown still has a chance to sneak into fourth place and the Ivy Tournament. The Bears took care of one must-win home game when they beat Princeton, but that was on a Saturday and Harvard is better than Princeton with a much shorter bus trip.
Pick: Harvard +3 Over BROWN and Under 138.
Dartmouth +9.5 @ YALE (149). Dartmouth is this year’s hard luck team. The Big Green is 11-13, 2-6, but except for a blowout home loss to Yale, their other five losses are by 5, 2, 3, 3, 1. Tonight, unfortunately, they get Yale (14-4, 7-1) away. While the Bulldogs may be looking ahead to tomorrow night’s Harvard matchup and a chance to avenge their only League loss, Yale hasn’t lost at home all season and we don’t expect that to change tonight.
Pick: YALE -4.5 Over Dartmouth and Under 154.
Cornell +7 @ PRINCETON (136.5) 8 pm. It’s the two teams tied for third battling tonight at Jadwin. Cornell (11-13, 5-3) has turned it around in League play after a blah start to their season and Princeton (13-8, 5-3) has been inconsistent and unable to beat the League’s top teams. Princeton should win at home but I’d be surprised if the game isn’t close.
Pick: Cornell +12 Over PRINCETON and Over 131.5.
Columbia +7.5 @ PENN (141), 8 pm. I’ve already seen these two teams play once and still have no idea. In the first half at Columbia (6-16, 1-7) neither team could get anything going on offense and in the second half neither team could stop the other. Penn (15-9, 3-5) won a squeaker when a last-second Gabe Stefanini shot missed. This is a spread you could really tease either way and feel good about it, but since Penn is home and HAS TO win if they’re going to have any chance at the Ivy Tournament. . . .
Pick: Penn -2.5 Over Columbia and Under 146.
