The underdog is 4-0-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Columbia has been absolutely terrible this season and has lost each of their last five games by double-digits. Harvard is having a down year as well, but they have been much more competitive. I am taking Harvard at home even though the spread is pretty big.
