Harvard +5.5 over Yale (win)
Both teams are well coached and are capable of winning the Ivy League Title.  Harvard had two close losses this weekend and are in desperation mode.  A loss to Yale will push them more than a few games of the pace.  Yale is a perfect 4-0 in league play, but have not really been tested.  In the 3 league home games they have played three teams (Brown, Columbia and Cornell) that are a combined 1-29 on the road this year.  Harvard has the experience edge and the overall talent edge.  This is a team that won both regular season league games last year and they return everybody except the injured Bryce Aiken.  Yale lost their top three scorers from last year and today we will get a good measure on who these teams really are.  Look for Harvard to play with a little more purpose as they are already back against the wall in league play.  Take Harvard.
