Brown Bears vs Columbia Lions prediction

The Brown Bears enter this game playing poor ball, and now they go on the road, where they're 3-8 SU. The Columbia Lions are 9-3 SU at home, and they clapped Brown two weeks ago by a score of 83-69. Columbia has an edge defensively, and just showed its above average offense can give Brown a world of problems. You can argue this line should be steeper given the form of both teams. Give me Columbia and the reasonable chalk.
