Yale (16-10) vs. Cornell (13-10)

The Yale Bulldogs travel to Ithaca, New York to take on the Cornell Big Red for a 2:00 pm tip. Yale is 16-10 overall, 6-5 on the road. They won their last game and are 8-1 in their last 9 games, 4 straight road wins. They recently lost to Princeton, which bumped them to 2nd place in the Ivy League. Both share the same 10-2 conference record and split head to head games. If Yale wants to win the conference, they need to win out!

Cornell is 13-10 overall, 9-2 at home. They are on a 3 game losing streak and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. They also have lost 2 of their last 3 home games. Cornell is 4th in the Ivy League with a 5-7 conference record.

Yale Analysis

Yale has been one of the best Ivy League schools this season and desperately needs this win. They are a pretty efficient offensive team, scoring 73 ppg. They balance that with a decent defense, allowing teams to score 69.4 ppg, shoot 42.2% from the floor and 31.2% from 3. The Bulldogs are great from the charity stripe, shooting 75.6%.

Cornell Analysis

Cornell has one of the best scoring offenses in the country, averaging 79.9 ppg and shoots 46.9%. However, they have one of the worst defenses in the country, giving up 75.4 ppg.

  • Yale is 4-0 ats in their last 4 road games
  • Yale is 4-1 ats in their last 5 games
  • Yale is 44-12 ats in their last 56 road games as a favorite
  • Yale has beaten Cornell in 10 straight head to head games
  • Cornell is 0-5 ats in their last 5 games
  • Cornell is 2-12 ats in their last 14 games vs Yale
  • Cornell is 0-8 at home against Yale

Sidekicks' Verdict

Yale statistically has Cornell’s number. Pair the past trends with how much this game means to Yale, it could be a rough day for Cornell. Cornell is solid at home and can light up the scoreboard, but Yale can hang with them and plays better defense. I am playing this to win 3 units. Yale wins and covers.
