Penn vs Yale Best Bet: Can Yale Jump Out Early?

We will head to the smartest league in all of sports, the Ivy League! We have a heavyweight battle coming as the Penn Quakers will take on the Yale Bulldogs. These two teams have both enjoyed outstanding conference seasons, and the winner of this game will be in first place in the Ivy League.

Penn vs Yale Prediction

There is a lot of pressure in these games for both teams to perform, as this game may very well decide who wins the league. Neither of these teams has any chance for an at-large bid so winning their conference is the only way to the big dance.

I will say either of these teams could be scary to a power conference school come March. Yale is led by the pride of Brockton, Massachusetts, Azar Swain. The six-foot senior has been outstanding and one of the best players in all of the IVY league this year, averaging north of nineteen points per contest.

On the flip side for Penn, their star this season has been New York native Jordan Dingle who is scoring over twenty points per game and may be on his way to Ivy League player of the year when the time comes. These two teams did meet up earlier in the season in the city of brotherly love in a game that Penn won.

Revenge will be on the minds of Yale here on Friday night with a lot at stake! The pick I am going with in this game is going to be Yale but on the first half, spread at -1.5. I love this spot for them at home behind a fired-up crowd to control the first twenty minutes of this game. While I do think they win and likely cover the full game -4, I believe this is the best line to take.

These teams are very evenly matched, and so I think they will take a split on the season series. Yale has an advantage on the glass; in my opinion, that should show up in this game. I expect a big game out of Swain as well, who has answered the call for Yale when they need him the most. Yale will need their star to show up for this one. This game will be very meaningful to both teams, so I advise checking this one out on Friday night! Let’s keep things rolling here with a Yale first-half cover.
