Free Spread Prediction: Brown Bears +8.5

After anlayzing this matchup, we like the fact that Yale comes into this game looking to get out and run, as they are one of the faster paced teams in college basketball. This should present a significant mismatch against a Brown Bears unit that is much more comfortable slowing the game down. Even with a large spread sitting at -8.5, look for an increased number of possessions to help the Bulldogs’ cause as they cruise to an easy win. Our recommendation is to jump on Yale to not only come out on top but cover the spread over Brown.
