8* Friday CBB YALE/PENN
Yale vs. Pennsylvania,
02/08/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 68 - 59
Point Spread: -1/-105 Pennsylvania
The Pennsylvania Quakers host the ale Bulldogs on Friday. Pennsylvania is coming off a 71-69 loss to Cornell, while Yale dropped their last game to Dartmouth, 71-62.
The Quakers are 2-1 ATS in conference play, and appeared destined to go 3-0 before a double-digit second half lead faded away against Cornell, before the Big Red hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer.
There were some positives to draw on as the Quakers hit on 50 percent of their shots from the floor, and 12-of-24 shots from beyond the arc. Fran Dougherty’s return from illness makes the Quakers far better than their record indicates, particularly at home.
The Bulldogs have only one win in their last 12 trips to the historic Palestra, yet they draw the chalk in this one. Yale is 1-3 in conference play, with that lone win coming at home, while all three losses were compiled on the road.
In their last game, they allowed Dartmouth to shoot 51 percent from the field, while shooting just 35.3 percent themselves. The score from that game is very misleading, as the Bulldogs made it look a lot closer than it was by hitting 21-of-24 free throw attempts.
The Quakers are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these teams. Take Pennsylvania.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
