Yale @ Harvard

An Ivy League classic is kicking off today’s slate of games; the Bulldogs head to Cambridge to take on the Crimson.

Yale is having a strong season and are a game behind Cornell for the conference lead. However, they have a tough schedule to close out the season, so it’s important they take care of their easier matchups.

Harvard is in the middle of the pack, but they are a wild card. The Crimson are 3-4 in conference play, but one of those wins came against Cornell. So while their record might not indicate it, they can run with anyone in the Ivy.

When they met in New Haven in January, Yale edged them out by 4. It was the Bulldogs’ third consecutive win against Harvard, but the streak ends today. The Crimson won’t take another L to Yale. Chris Ledlum will have a big game to lead his squad to victory.

Harvard +3.5 (-110)
Under 132.5 (-110)

Fresno State @ UNLV

The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels were having a great season until they entered conference play. They are 15-7 on the season, with 6 of those Ls coming against Mountain West teams. While they would like to correct things before tournament play begins, they may be a lost cause at this point.

The Fresno State Bulldogs have been terrible this year, but they have already taken advantage of these Rebels once this season. The Bulldogs are 3-7 in conference play; their three wins were against Wyoming, New Mexico, and UNLV. They defeated North Las Vegas by 13 when they came to town. Now they head to Thomas & Mack Center looking to go 2-0 against UNLV for the first time since 2018.

I can’t find a single reason to think this game will be very different from the one two weeks ago. While the Runnin’ Rebels may pick up the win, there is no way they cover this massive spread.

Fresno State +9.5 (-110)
Over 130.5 (-110)
