Predictions and odds between Columbia vs. Harvard (Growth upward movement)

After their third loss in a row in the Ivy League, and their fourth in their last five, the Harvard Crimson look set to be a little disappointed when they host the Columbia Lions tonight in Cambridge.

Columbia is 4-18 into the season; only 1-9 in the game with their only win coming more than a month ago in a tough game against the Penn Quakers on Jan. 8.

As for Harvard, they lost to the aforementioned Penn 82-74 after two consecutive 3-point losses to the hated Yale Bulldogs.

The spread is more than two touchdowns with the total continuing to grow, so dive into the latest odds at WynnBET Sportsbook.


Cash flow:


The result of today’s game is actually a full 3.5 point increase from the opening 142.5, and I think that push is actually a bit excessive; consider I like anything below.

Harvard had to go crazy after three lengthy losses against two of the strongest Ivy League teams, especially since both games against Yale were played in a single possession.

Purely from a match point of view, Harvard should appeal to the Lions this evening. The Lions’ defense ranks in the bottom three in college basketball, as well as in the bottom 10 in effective on-court scoring. Columbia also finished last on the opponent’s three-point allowable ratio. If you want an open look from anywhere on the field, the Lions are a great team to play on.

On the other side of the ball, the Crimson defense came out on top in the meeting in terms of turnover ratio and limited counter-attacking.

The only way for Columbia to hold on, as well as force a pass, is if they take shots from downtown. They top in the Ivy League on three-point percentage with under 40%. The last time these two teams played, The Crimson let the Lions hit 27 three-pointers, and they made just under half of those shooting 48% of the day with a 91-82 win. The 82 points the Lions have scored so far is their highest of their season.

This time, expect Harvard’s defense to be much sharper and fiercer. Crimson will continue to get easy wins, but the defensive effort will be there this time.

LEAN: BELOW 146 (-110)
