Bears Going For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Bears were able to bounce back from a three-game skid by winning three of their next four games. They will try to make it four wins in five games against the struggling Bulldogs.

In their last game, the Bears defeated the NJIT Highlanders 70-69, thanks to some solid defensive play at the end of the game.

The Bears held the Highlanders to 40 percent shooting from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

Anthony Tarke led the way for the Highlanders with 17 points, eight rebounds, and six assists, while Shyquan Gibbs and Shawndale Jones added 13 points each for the Highlanders, who finished with three players scoring in double figures.

Offensively, the Bears did enough to get the win. The team shot 49 percent from the field and 25 percent from three point range.

Obi Okolie led the way for the Bears with 14 points, while Desmond Cambridge added 13 points for the Bears, who finished the game with four players scoring in double figures.

Bulldogs Going For Second Win In Three Games

The Yale Bulldogs have been struggling for most of the season, and have lost four of their last five games, thanks to a three-game losing streak. But, they have a chance to win their second game in three tries against the Bears on Friday.

In their last game, the Bulldogs lost to Georgia Tech 74-60.

In that game, their defense wasn’t at its best. The Bulldogs held the Yellow Jackets to 48.9 percent field goal shooting and 53 percent from three point range.

Jose Alvarado was the high man for the Yellow Jackets with 23 points, six rebounds and four assists. Josh Okogie added 20 points for the Yellow Jackets, who finished with four players scoring in double figures.

Offensively, the Bulldogs also have a lot of work to do after shooting 42 percent from the field and 33 percent from three point range against the Yellow Jackets.

Miye Oni was the high man for the Bulldogs with 14 points, while Paul Atkinson added 10 points for the Bulldogs, who had only two players score in double figures.

Trends

Brown is:

  • 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
  • 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Ivy League.

Yale is:

  •  3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Ivy League.
  •  2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS loss.
  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games.

Neither team has been good against the spread in their past 10 games, but the Bulldogs have a slight edge due to their better conference record.

As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
