Friday's Ivy League Betting Preview

Friday means Ivy League basketball for college bettors. Today features a full slate of action, highlighted by Yale vs Columbia to kick off the day. Though the disparity in the Ivy League is prominent, keeping tabs on the betting trends for the top teams is important with the best team in the league getting an automatic bid into March Madness.

Columbia vs Yale (-6.5, 135.5)

Columbia and Yale come into Friday as the top two teams in the Ivy League and both have been a solid bet as of late. The Lions have covered in each of their past three games with an average scoring margin of +9.7 points. The Bulldogs have gone 2-0-1 ATS in their past three games, all of which have seen them as favorites.

Yale has also been a great OVER play with each of their past four games topping the closing total. Those four games have seen an average combined score of 148.5 points.

Dartmouth vs Penn (-2, 136)

Both Dartmouth and Penn are coming into this game struggling on the court and at the betting window. The Big Green is 0-2 SU and ATS in their past two games while allowing 77 points in each affair. The Quakers enter Friday on a three-game skid SU and ATS, including an embarrassing 23-point loss to Yale.

Penn has been solid at home this season with a 3-1 ATS record while Dartmouth is just 1-4 for bettors on the road.

Cornell vs Brown (+2.5, 157.5)

Brown has not been good this season and their defense has been paper-thin at best lately. The Bears have allowed an average of 83.3 points per game in their past four games, which has led to the OVER hitting on three occasions.

Cornell has also been a hot OVER play as well with the Big Red topping the closing total each of their past three games. Those three games have seen an average combined score of 146.3 points.

Harvard vs Princeton (-9.5, 134.5)

Harvard has hit the skids lately as they are 0-3 SU and ATS in their past three outings. Harvard’s offense has been hard to watch as they have averaged 56.3 points while being held under 60 points in two of those three games.

Princeton has been solid on the court, but a stay away for bettors. The Tigers are 4-4-1 ATS and 4-5 OVER/UNDER this season.
