Cornell is 6-1-1 against the spread following a loss, 4-0-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 8-1-2 against the spread following a loss. Penn is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 2-5 against the spread following a loss by 20 or more points, and 2-6 against the spread on the road against a team with a winning home record. The road team is 5-0-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings of these two.
This is Penn’s first road game following five home games and with the mild spread I look for Cornell to get it done at home.
