The Yale Bulldogs visit the Harvard Crimson in a Saturday college basketball matchup.

The surging Yale Bulldogs have won eight in a row after downing Brown 79-71 as a 7.5 point home favorite last Friday.

Yale jumped to a seven point advantage at the break and traded baskets the rest of the way behind a 43.5%-39.4% shooting edge.

Alex Copeland topped the Bulldogs scoring with 19 points and four pulls with Miye Oni adding 15 points, 12 rebounds and four helpers.

Yale saw another 15 points and nine rebounds from Blake Reynolds followed by Jordan Bruner and Trey Phills with nine points each with Bruner grabbing ten boards.

The Harvard Bulldogs knocked off 64-59 for consecutive wins as a ten point home favorite last Friday night.

Harvard was down one after 20 minutes before a late surge but Dartmouth would not go away with both teams sinking shots in the 38%-40% range.

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…

Pick:
Yale +1.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
