First Week Betting Lines Posted
First off, check out this nice short story about the Feely family that includes sophomore kicker Tyler Feely, his dad Tom and of course his older brother Jay who is kicking for the Arizona Cardinals.
Betting Lines and My Record & Policy
I am not a gambler, BUT...
These betting lines are informative.
And picking against them is a good way to see if your delusional about the Ivies or not.
Every week, (usually Friday), I make my picks public on this blog.
Last year I was 32-12 just picking winners and 31-13 against the spread.
That's a .704 winning percentage against the bookies.
For the record, I will not be supplying the name of the source on the betting lines because I actually really oppose sports betting and I am the one schmuck in America who really does use them “for entertainment purposes only.”
Also, I will continue to not pick Columbia games because I am too emotionally attached and I see a little more of the Lions than any other team which makes it unfair.
Okay disclaimers over!
Here's what the offshore oddsmakers are saying about the games this weekend, (my picks and comments will come late tomorrow or Friday):
Yale is a 16 point favorite at home against Georgetown.
Harvard and Holy Cross are a "pick 'em" game in Worcester.
Host Dartmouth is a 2 point favorite over Colgate.
Princeton is a 20 point underdog at home against Lehigh
Cornell hosts Bucknell and that game is another "pick 'em"
Penn is a big 23 point favorite over Lafayette at Franklin Field.
Brown is a three point favorite over Stony Brook on Long Island.
And our Lions are 3 1/2 point underdogs at Fordham.
