The Columbia Lions and Cornell Big Red face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Newman Arena. When these two teams faced off in January of 2020 it was Cornell that won 62-50. 

Columbia comes into this game with a 4-16 record and they have gone 9-10 against the spread. In the last game against Princeton, the defense gave up 85 points, and that led to the defeat. Two games ago against Penn, the defense gave up 81 points. Columbia is averaging 68.8 points while their defense is giving up 78.8 points per game. Ike Nweke has been the top player for Columbia averaging 15.9 points while shooting 52.9 percent from the field and 25 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cornell Big Red who sit with a 12-7 record overall and they have gone 13-4 against the spread.Cornell have won three of their last four games, but they did lose their last game against Penn.

Columbia is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall. Cornell is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. The over is 4-0 in Columbia’s last four games played on Wednesday. The over is 5-1 in Cornell’s last six games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 percent. 

Cornell is an elite offensive team and are now facing off against a team that has issues defending. I expect Cornell is going to get close to 90 points, and that will be the difference as the home team will cruise to the victory. Back Cornell against the spread. In terms of the total I do think Columbia's offense keeps this game under the total.
