Score: 60 - 63
Point Spread: -3½/-110 Cornell
3* Saturday Night SMASH on Cornell -3.5
Cornell is better than its 6-11 record leads you to believe. It's played 9 of its first 17 games on the road and has tackled pretty challenging schedule with 3 games against teams from major conferences. Columbia has played just 7 true road games and only one school from a major conference.
The Lions won the season's first meeting by 5 points at home a week ago, but I expect the Big Red to have their revenge. Cornell is 6-2 at home this season and has won 10 of its last 14 at home in this series.
The Lions are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 vs. the Ivy League, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games following three or more consecutive home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog of 6.5 points or less and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.
The Big Red are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games following an ATS loss. The favorite is also 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in this series. Lay the points.
