Yale is the favorite in this one, with an expected 19.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
Yale's victory brought them up to 16-6 while the Lions' defeat pulled them down to 6-18. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bulldogs have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.40%, which places them 13th in college basketball.
