Yale Bulldogs at Cornell Big Red, 2 pm Eastern
The Pick: Yale -172, bet $34.40 to win $20; Yale -3.5 (-106), bet $18.55 to win $17.50
A big game I’m excited to watch. Yale needs a win to stay a half-game ahead of Princeton for the top spot in the Ivy League; Cornell needs a win to stay a half-game ahead of Harvard for the fourth and final playoff spot. The Big Red are tough at home, 9-2 (7-3 against the spread), but I think Yale’s just too strong and athletic for them. The Bulldogs are one of two teams in the Ivy that is capable of adapting to Cornell’s pace. In their last meeting in New Haven, the Bulldogs blew Cornell out, 96-69, with ten players scoring and they’ve beaten Cornell in ten straight. Today will be closer, but Yale’s need to stay ahead of Princeton means they won’t let up too much.
Columbia Lions at Brown Bears, 6 pm Eastern
The Pick: Brown -16.5 (-110), bet $8.24 to win $7.50
Brown’s season ended last week with their last-second loss to Penn (they do still have the tiniest of chances of of a 4-way-tie for fourth with tiebreakers), but Mike Martin will still have his team playing hard and Columbia hasn’t had anything to play for in months. I’ll put a small taste on a game that represents pride for the Bears, but I’ll also…
The Pick: Parlay Yale -3.5 w/Brown -16.5 +263, bet $5 to win $13.14
