Betting the Ivy League: Brown to rebound against Dartmouth

Here are Friday night's Ivy League men's basketball odds and selections:

at Harvard 13½ Yale

The Crimson struggled with Dartmouth mightily last week and needed overtime to knock off the Big Green, who were picked last in the league. While Harvard swept Yale last season, the Bulldogs are very talented and played well in last week's win over Brown. While Yale is still trying to figure out how to win games like this they should keep it under double-digits: Pick: Yale

at Princeton 14 Cornell
The Tigers could be the best team in the league this year, especially if Harvard's troubles with Dartmouth were a indication that the Crimson might not be that good. Still, 14 points is too much for the gritty Big Red. Pick: Cornell

Columbia 1½ at Penn
The Lions look to be a true contender in the league but they still have to prove that they can win on the road, especially at the Palestra. Pick: Columbia

at Dartmouth 2 Brown
Dartmouth was in control against Harvard but squandered a seven-point in the last minute only to lose in overtime. Brown has a veteran team with good scorers. It will struggle on the second half of the back-to-back games because it has no depth but the Bears can outscore the Big Green. Pick: Brown

Best bet: Brown
