Ivy League NCAAB pick: Princeton vs Harvard — Eckel doesn't think the line makes any sense, do you?

Mark Eckel

Princeton at Harvard (-7.5), 7 p.m.

Princeton (11-10, 6-2) heads into the weekend tied with Yale for first place in the Ivy League, while Harvard (16-7, 5-3) is in a three-way tie for third.

This line doesn’t make any sense. Which in other words mean, “It’s telling me something.’'

Here is how five of Harvard’s last six games have gone: Loss in overtime at Penn; one-point loss at Princeton; one-point win against Yale; one-point loss to Brown; double overtime win over Columbia.

The Crimson is also 2-7 against the spread over the past nine games and 1-7 ATS as a favorite. And yet they are 7.5-point favorites against the team tied for first place in the league, who already beat them.

Something doesn’t smell right in Cambridge and it’s not the chowder.

The Pick: Harvard minus 7.5
