Shane’s Free Pick
Cornell only scored 58 points in the last game but they are a much better offensive team than that. They are currently averaging 82.5 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Their defense is going to continue to struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash here. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
