The Cornell Big Red haven't had much success on the road this season, and they've lost nine straight against Yale, most of those games not being close. Yale is also shooting a solid 46 percent from the field at home and is due for a breakout performance to break out of this funk. I'll lay the chalk based on the history between these two clubs.
