Cornell vs Yale Betting Prediction

These two teams finished tied for second in the Ivy League standings this season with 11-3 conference records, so this should be a great game here. Yale did lose their last game in overtime to Brown, but they have scored at least 80 points in four straight games. Cornell has alternated wins and losses over their last five games, but they also possess a very high scoring offense. Yale won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 80-78, while Cornell won the second meeting by a score of 65-62. This game could go either way, but I am going to take Yale here. The Bulldogs are the much better defensive team and I am going to take defense over offense here.
