Over on the Yale side, they’re currently 15-4 this year. The Bulldogs are on a five-game winning streak right now, taking out JWU-Providence, Brown, Howard, Brown again and Columbia in that stretch. 

In the win over the Lions, Yale’s Matthue Cotton posted 20 points with four rebounds and three steals. Azar Swain was also in double-digits there with 16 points, three assists and three rebounds. 

The over is 6-2 in Yale’s last eight home games and 6-2 in their last eight overall. The Bulldogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 16-5-1 ATS in their last 21 home games. 

Meanwhile, the Red are 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games. Cornell is 2-7 ATS in their last nine overall and the over is 4-2 in their last six road games.
Yale has been scoring pretty well over the last five games, with at least 70 points in each outing and at least 89 in three of those. The Bulldogs have only lost one game since November 23, when they fell to Penn State 58-56. 

As for Cornell, they haven’t hit 70 points in any of their last three games, and have been pretty sluggish offensively lately versus comparable opponents. I’m going with Yale on the cover here.
