Yale is an experienced team that would have a better record if it didn't open the season with road games against Creighton and Wisconsin. Delaware has had a lot of cupcakes out of the gate to kind of pad their record and still struggle to space the floor offensively. Yale has better depth and has a history of winning on the road, so I'll lay the bucket with the Bulldogs in this spot.
