Yale Bulldogs (12-14; 6-11-1 ATS; 6-12 O/U0 vs. Cornell Big Red (10-13; 9-8 ATS; 10-7 O/U)

The Cornell Big Red will take on the Yale Bulldogs in an Ivy League battle Friday night from the Newman Arena. The Bulldogs were handled 64-49 by Harvard on Saturday, and the Big Red dropped a 79-71 decision to Pennsylvania in their previous contest. Yale tallied a 74-65 home win in the first meeting earlier this month.

Yale Shoots 31% in Rough Loss to Harvard

The Yale Bulldogs could not crack Harvard’s defense in their 64-49 road loss on Saturday to fall to 5-5 in Ivy League action. The Bulldogs shot an abysmal 31.5% from the field, while holding Harvard to a 46% shooting performance. Bulldogs’ leading scorer Miye Oni had a rough night in the loss, going 2 for 10 from the field for a total of only seven points. The sophomore guard has come through with some solid performances, however, he is having an inconsistent season and is now averaging 14.8 points on 39.7% shooting. Alex Copeland also struggled in Saturday’s loss, converting on only 3 of 10 field goal attempts for seven points. The junior guard has scored eight or fewer points in four out of his last five games, bringing him down to 11.7 points on a 49% field goal efficiency.

Yale had their three-game winning streak snapped in Saturday’s loss, however, they still remain in third place in the conference standings. They have lost four of their five Ivy League road games, and are positioned at 197th in the nation in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. The Bulldogs are averaging 73.7 points per game, ranking them 188th overall. They are conceding an average of 72.5 points, placing them 180th in the nation.

Cornell’s Defense Falters in Sixth Conference Loss

The Cornell Big Red played poor defense in their 79-71 home loss to Pennsylvania on Saturday to drop to 4-6 in Ivy League play. The Big Red posted a solid 50% mark from the field, however, Penn was able to shoot 52%. Big Red’ leading scorer Matt Morgan struggled in the defeat, sinking only 2 of 12 shots to go with eight free-throws for a total of 12 points. Overall, the junior guard is having a tremendous season as he leads the entire Ivy League with an average of 22.7 points per game on 48% shooting. Stone Gettings added 11 points and seven rebounds in Cornell’s latest action. The junior forward is playing well, scoring at least 20 points in six out of his last seven games, increasing his season average to 17.3 points and a team-leading 6.7 rebounds per game.

The Big Red own a 4-3 record in their last seven games and all three losses in that span came by eight or fewer points. They sit in fifth place out of the eight-team Ivy League and are placed at 266th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Cornell is scoring an average of 75.7 points per game, ranking them 129th in the country. They are a weak defensive team, allowing 80.6 points, positioning them down at 331st overall.

Trends:

The Yale Bulldogs are:

  • 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss.
  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record.
  • 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss.

The Cornell Big Red are:

  • 15-3 ATS in their last 18 games following an ATS loss.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games.
  • 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss.

I am taking Cornell in this contest. Yale has lost four of their five conference road games this season, with the lone win coming against a very weak Dartmouth team. Furthermore, Cornell has been productive on their home court, averaging 83.8 points in their five conference home games. Opponents are shooting 46% against Yale this season, and I am confident Cornell can have a productive night on their home court.
