Week 5 Picks

I was a stellar 4-1 against the spread last week and a not-so-good 3-2 straight up. My season totals are now 13-8 straight up and 14-7 ATS.

Brown +14 at Princeton

The Bears are a super inconsistent team again this year. This week, I think they'll be "on" and play better, but not enough to win. Look for the Tigers to win by about 10.

Sacred Heart +1 at Cornell

Sacred Heart hit a crazy bump in the road at Wagner two weeks ago before getting a bye week last Saturday. Now they head to Ithaca, where the Big Red are coming off their first loss of the season at Harvard. Cornell still fought hard in that game and looks generally good, but SHU really has something to prove.

Fordham -15 1/2 over Yale

Yale's win over Dartmouth last week has Eli fans believing 2016 can be salvaged, but if RB Alan Lamar doesn't play against the Rams it will be a long day in the Bronx. Actually, I think it'll be a long day no matter what.

Towson +4 1/2 at Dartmouth

I see the suddenly exposed Big Green winning this game, but by no more than a FG. Towson has been snake bitten all year and they will probably find a way to lose this one too.

Holy Cross +11 1/2 vs. Harvard

The Crusaders are going to make this one close, probably with a late score. The Crimson will win, but not by much.
