Brown Bears (7-6; 3-2 ATS: 3-2 O/U) vs. Yale Bulldogs (7-9; 2-6 ATS; 3-5 O/U)

Line: Yale -7.5

Total: 153

The Yale Bulldogs will open conference play against the Brown Bears in an IVY League clash Friday evening from the John J. Lee Amphitheatre in New Haven, CT. The Bears edged NJIT 70-69  in their latest action, and the Bulldogs dropped a 74-60 decision to Georgia Tech in their previous contest. Yale defeated Brown in both meetings last season.

Bears Open Ivy League Play on Winning Note

The Brown Bears enter this one well-rested after edging NJIT by a 70-69 score in their latest action on January 3rd. The Bears posted a stellar 49% field goal efficiency and limited NJIT to a 40% mark. Bear’s leading scorer Brandon Anderson scored 12 points on 4 for 10 shooting in the winning effort. The sophomore guard is having an excellent season, reaching at least 20 points on seven occasions this season, and is currently averaging 19 points per game. Desmond Cambridge collected 13 points on a 4 for 13 shooting effort in Brown’s latest action. The freshman guard is only shooting 40% on the season, however, he is playing big minutes, and is up to 15.9 points per game.

The Bears have won three out of their last four games, however overall they are a weak defensive team and they will likely have trouble in Ivy League play. They are ranked down at 237th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. Brown is scoring an average of 78.2 points per game, ranking them 97th overall. They are allowing an average of 76.6 points, placing them down at 274th in the nation.

Yale Falls to Georgia Tech in Non-Conference Finale

The Yale Bulldogs enter conference play with only seven wins in their first 16 games. They are coming off a 74-60 road loss to Georgia Tech in their previous contest last weekend. Yale did keep it close in the first half in the loss, however, they only shot 42.9% from the field. Miye Oni led all Bulldogs with 14 points on a 6 for 14 shooting performance in the loss. The sophomore guard has reached 20 points in three out of his last five games and is currently averaging 16.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Blake Reynolds added nine points on 50% shooting in the Bulldogs latest defeat. The junior forward has only scored a combined 17 points in his last two games, however, he does feature a 49.3% shooting efficiency, and is second in team scoring with 11.1 points per game.

Yale did have some trouble in non-conference play, however, most of their losses came to strong competition. They are placed at 183rd in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. The Bulldogs are scoring an average of 76.3 points per game, ranking them 135th overall. They are conceding an average of 75.1 points, placing them 241st overall.

Trends:

The Brown Bears are:

  • 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against conference opponents.
  • 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog.
  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games against a team with a winning home record.

The Yale Bulldogs are:

  • 44-20-2 ATS in their last 66 games as a favorite.

I am taking Yale in this matchup. Brown is very weak defensively, and opponents are averaging a 46% shooting percentage against them. Yale is a solid offensive team, and three of their top four scorers are all shooting at least 49% on the season, so they should have no problem against the Bears’ weak defense. Furthermore, Brown has not been efficient from the field as their top four scorers all own a field goal percentage below 41%.
