Harvard is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games. Harvard is 4-16-1 against the spread in their last 21 games against a team with a losing straight up record. The under is 4-1 in Penn’s last five games. The under is 4-1 in Penn’s last five games following an against the spread win. 

Penn was competitive in the last game and I expect they are going to find success in this game. Harvard didn’t look great in their last game and the offense was a big issue. I expect Penn is going to slow down Harvard’s offense and that will be enough to keep this game close. Back Penn to cover the spread.
