Week 8 Picks

I went 4-2 straight up and 4-2 against the spread last week to bring my season totals to 33-14 straight up and 24-23 ATS.

Dartmouth +8 at Harvard (game is Friday night)

Well, this is the big one. And with a national TV prime time slot, the excitement is only greater. I said at the beginning of the season that I thought Dartmouth was good enough to win the championship, but not if it had to beat the Crimson at Harvard. I see no reason to change that prediction, but I do think the Big Green should cover this spread.

Penn +1 at Brown

I am now a believer in the Quakers. They'll win this one.

Cornell +23 at Princeton

The Big Red will bounce back with a decent showing, but not enough to beat the Tigers.

Fordham -9 1/2 at Colgate

The Rams are getting hot again.

Georgetown +4 at Lehigh

The Hoyas are getting feistier by the week. I think they will lose this game, but not by much.

Duquesne -19 vs. Wagner

Wagner is without weapons.

Sorry but based on last weeks showing, i'll take the points with
Harvard this week. Glad i'm not a betting man.

Yes, lay the points and double your net worth going against Wagner. What a gimme.

Jake, why a pic of a totally unrelated player (and from a different school) by Chris Everett's name?

So I watched the highlight video. Maybe because of no fast music or soundtrack. Dunno. But most of the passes seemed to be thrown into coverage and this fella leaped above short defenders to grab the catch. Fine, but did not see any blistering speed or sharp routs that could trouble pass defenses.
