Week 7 Picks
Columbia’s game notes for Saturday’s game at Yale have now been released.
The headline is Alex Gross has been moved to middle linebacker.
This news come on the same day that we learn that Alex has been named one of Sixteen National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athletes.
Now back to the continuing saga of my game picks overall and against the spread.
I had a strong week last week, and let’s go to the proof:
Lafayette +8 at Fordham
Jake Said: “The Leopards… will cover the spread, but Fordham should eke out the win.”
Result: Fordham eked out a 14-10 win. 1-0 overall, 1-0 Against the Spread.
Cornell +19 at Brown
Jake Said: “I think the Bears win by 20 or 21.”
Result: A late Cornell TD helped the Big Red cover the spread. 2-0 overall, 1-1 ATS.
Harvard -10 at Princeton
Jake Said: “The Crimson should bounce back and cover the spread here.”
Result: Harvard won by 17. 3-0 overall, 2-1 ATS.
Penn -3 at Yale
Jake Said: “Take Penn and give the points before the bookies come to their senses.
Result: Penn won by seven. 4-0 overall, 3-1 ATS.
So now I am 22-10 overall and 21-11 ATS through six weeks.
On to this week…
Princeton -1 at Cornell
The loser is facing a very likely 0-7 season in the league. I have to go with the home team here and predict a win for the Big Red.
Harvard -1 ½ at Dartmouth
A very tough game to pick, but I think Harvard is really gearing up for a strong stretch run. The Crimson win and cover.
Brown +7 ½ at Penn
Can the Bears beat or keep it close against the Quakers without their best QB? I don’t think so. Penn should cover.
