Penn (-10.5) at Cornell o/u 51.5 12:00 Fox College Sports

Columbia at Brown (-3.5) o/u 45.5 12:30

Yale at Harvard (-12.5) o/u 55.5 12:30 CNBC (_not_ NBCSN!)

Dartmouth at Princeton (-14.5) o/u 37.5 1:30 One World Sports

Approximate chance of:
a three-way tie - 57%
a two-way tie - 36%
a solo titlist - 7%

(Figuring out the particular odds for each team in the two-way and solo scenarios is above my pay grade.)

So that translates to

Penn 31 Cornell 21 -- reasonable, bet either way
Brown 24 Columbia 21 -- who knows with weird Lions?
Harvard 34 Yale 21 -- take the under
Princeton 26 Dartmouth 12 -- take the over

As a whole, shows you what an odd year it's been. Strange to have three double-digit spreads the final Saturday.

While the lines don't reflect it, I think Dartmouth has the best chance for an upset.

As big a traditional game as H is for Yale, I thought they were unimpressive last week and not showing signs they can pull a surprise. I think H will not have much trouble with them at home.

Cornell has an advantage at being at home, and the Penn offense has not been as explosive as I thought it would be in the last couple of games, but I think Penn handles Cornell easily. Priore has done a good job in his first two years.

P is at home, a plus, and should win. DC has the leading rusher in the Ivy games, a good passer, two defenders that NFL scouts are looking at (according to Surace), and a somewhat deceptive record. An upset would be less of a surprise than in the other two games, IMO.

I'll take the points, although "Gotta" Lovett has unbelievable td numbers, I agree with poster above and figure take the over might be the best bet

Holstie: I just hope the backs you see going tearing by, making gain on steady gain, are in orange and black! Best wishes to you.

Harvard is a steal at 12.5

John Feinstein weighs in on Columbia - at the very end of the piece.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/ten-of-the-most-fascinating-stories-of-the-college-football-season-so-far/2016/11/16/c0bda158-ac1b-11e6-a31b-4b6397e625d0_story.html?tid=a_inl

Not sure Bags or Columbia fans would agree with this rather patronizing assessment.

The extraordinary turn around at Colorado surely has to be one of the 10 biggest stories of the year.....from more than a decade of losing to 8-2 and a #10 ranking is pretty big

Most of these items are newsworthy, but omitting Colorado is a mistake. East coast bias, I guess; CU games haven't been shown much in these parts.

I would lay heavily (if gambling were legal) on Harvard and the over. Yale's D is terrible, particularly vs the pass, and H will have no hesitation to run it up. It will go ugly early (much like me on a Saturday night at Rudy's in the old days).

Like everyone else I would like to see a Yale upset, but you have to wonder what these oddsmakers are thinking.
