The Crimson received 19 points and five assists from Christian Juzang with Chris Lewis tossing in 16 points and posting eight rebounds.

Harvard saw another 14 points and three yanks from Bryce Aiken followed by Noah Kirkland with an eight point effort.

Yale Bulldogs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Ivy League and  are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Harvard Crimson are 25-10-2 ATS in their last 37 vs. Ivy League andare 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. Yale Bulldogs are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Harvard and under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

Beating Harvard on their home floor won’t be an easy task but I think Yale has the potential…
