Jim Feist

Yale at Columbia
Pick: Over

Oddsmakers haven't caught up to Yale's offense yet, with the over 12-3-1 in the Bulldogs last 16 overall. They come off a loss and tje over is 6-0-1 in Bulldogs last 7 games following a loss. Yale is on a 3-0 run over the total scoring 75 and 78 points in the wins, but off a 72-66 loss to Dartmouth. These teams just met two weeks ago and Yale shot 62% in a 75-56 win, sailing over the total. The over is 7-1-1 in Bulldogs last 9 vs. the Ivy League. Play Yale/Columbia over the total.

Don Best Consensus

Yale at Columbia
Pick: Yale

Yale (11-16, 5-5) visits Columbia (11-13, 3-7) in Ivy league play on Friday in a rematch of a game played just 2 weeks earlier. In that aforementioned meeting, Yale destroyed Columbia 75-56. In their last 5 games, Yale has been scoring at a rate of 69.8 ppg while Columbia has been scoring at a rate of 57.4 ppg. Not only is Yale the better team & getting points in this game, but Yale is also 8-0 ATS in the last 8 meetings vs. Columbia. Play Yale.

Joe Gavazzi

Dartmouth vs. Pennsylvania
Play: Pennsylvania   

In this matchup the Big Green has reverted to their accustomed spot at bottom of the Ivy standings. Recently, they are 0-5 SU, 0-4-1 ATS with every loss by nine or more points. That includes a home loss to the Quakers at Leede Arena on Feb 16th, 67-57. Penn has battle brilliantly in the face of losing two of their best players, Dougherty and Rennard in early February -- Going 3-3 SUATS in their absence. Reaching 500 mark in league play would be a big deal for a Penn team who is suffering a rare down season as they go through a rebuilding and injury plagued year. Long Friday afternoon drive from Hanover to Phila, hardly a plus for the towel tossing Big Green.

New Orleans Hornets -3.5

New Orleans hammered the Pistons last month, but don't count on Detroit returning the favor. The Pistons are just 8-20 on the road and 13-23 ATS in their last 36 revenge opportunities. The Hornets were completely humiliated at OKC last time out but have typically responded well following beatdowns. They are 15-4 ATS off a road loss by 10 points or more over the last 2 seasons.

NHL Predictions

Oilers / Blues Under 5

The Oilers are coming off a 5-1 victory in Dallas last night, while the Blues are coming off a 3-0 loss at home vs Chicago. The Blues have been struggling losing their 3 of their last 4 games and scoring just 3 goals over that span (being shutout twice). After Edmonton's 5 goal game last night they are sitting 25th in the NHL in goals per game (St Louis is 12th but have been sliding since a hot start). The Oilers are 13th in goals against per game, while the Blues are 18th giving up 2.84 goals against per game. The Blues were without Jaroslav Halak for a number of games, but he is confirmed for tonight in back to back games. He is 4-1-1 with a 1.89 GAA and .904 SV%. Devan Dubnyk will start for Edmonton and he is 6-5-3 with a 2.66 GAA and .921 SV%. Note that the UNDER is 24-6-4 in the Oilers last 34 games overall and 6-1 in their last 7 road games. The UNDER is 4-0 in the Blues last 4 games, and 10-2-3 in their last 15 games playing on 0 days rest. With two good goalies between the pipes tonight and neither team lighting it up lately I have this one going UNDER the total.

Bob Balfe

New York Knicks -2.5

Its very rare that a team as bad as the Wizards can be leading the league against the spread. This line should be a couple of points more, but because Washington has cashed tickets vegas has to make the line more appealing for Knick bettors. New York is flat out a better team and we will take this value as more or less they just have to win the game unless we get very unlucky and win by a point or two. Take the Knicks.


San Antonio Spurs/Sacramento Kings over 212

The Kings have really been scoring well as of late, but they can’t play defense for the life of them. I think the Spurs know they are going to have to break 100 to beat a team like the Kings. This should be a fun game for San Antonio to play in. This should be a shootout right from the start. The Kings should win big, but that 15 point line is just a little bit too much for my liking. Take the Over.

NEW ORLEANS (-3.5) over Detroit

We look for a strong game from a Hornets team that is coming off an embarrassing 20 point loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday and who have been good at home. New Orleans is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and even without first round pick Anthony Davis will have enough to get by a Pistons squad that has lost three of their last four.
