As he gets ready for the organic bouquet for bettors, the Winter Olympics schedule, Matt Rivers has a free sports pick on Cornell minus the number. They are laying 17 points at University of Pennsylvania.
It's not often that I would endorse laying such a number, no less doing so on the road, but this is just the mismatch of all mismatches and I just do not see Penn being able to stay competitive.
This current Cornell squad is probably the best team in the history of the Ivy League and that includes the Penn teams from the early to mid 90's with Matt Maloney and current head coach Jerome Allen.
The Big Red have a great coach in Steve Donahue who just recently used to be the assistant at Penn before getting very wrongly passed over. I don't see Donohue calling off the dogs and pulling the reigns in this thing. There has got to be some animosity and with the far more talented team, led by a stud in Ryan Wittman, Cornell is going to dominate.
Penn has regressed to the unbelievable point of being a doormat in the Ivy League. Just a few seasons ago these guys were still the class of the conference but it has been a steep drop-off in no time.
Meanwhile on the complete opposite extreme we have Cornell, which is a legitimate Top 25 team that was actually winning in the final minutes at Kansas about a month ago. The Big Red are 20-3 overall with losses only to Syracuse and Seton Hall early on and the Jayhawks back on January 6th.
Cornell has won eight straight games including obliterating Tommy Amaker's solid Harvard squad just a week ago. This team is rolling and will have little resistance tonight.
For more information: It doesn't get much easier than the 3-0 Thursday sweep which included the 300,000* Cavaliers, 100,000* California and 100,000* Mississippi State. Short term profits: Four straight winning days for right at 1.3 million* of profit, 8-2-1 run.
Long term profits: 25-13-1 run for 2.9 million* of profit.
All I do is win and today the perfect storm is here as I am releasing my most powerful play in existence. 500,000* improve to 38-15 lifetime with Siena-Niagara plus bonus 200,000* West Virginia-Pittsburgh. Click now to purchase Matt Rivers picks.
