We passed on Friday’s card from a service perspective, but here is a Fairway Free Forecast that is part of my personal betting interests. Ivy League play tips off tonight with Columbia (11-5) winning 11 of its last 12 games. As I often discuss, the improvement starts with defense, and the Lions rank 81st in KenPom’s adjusted defensive rankings after finishing 226th last season. Their effective field goal defense is also significantly improved this season (41st, 44%). Columbia is a slow-down team with an adjusted tempo ranking of 284 out of 345 which has assisted in a 2-5 O/U mark this season. One of the nation’s best kept secrets from a totals perspective in recent seasons, Columbia’s home games are 35-16 to the UNDER in recent seasons including 23-4 their last 27 conference home games (not including OT). The Penn Quakers (7-9) rank 229th in tempo and 166th in two-point shooting at 47%. Still, they can produce points with a pair of sharp shooting senior guards that lead the team in scoring and hit over 42% from the arch. Columbia’s shooting struggles show them hitting just 43% of their two-point shots to rank 288th nationally. A bit of contrasting styles, but familiarity of foes, pace of play, overall sub-par shooting and past proven history points to another UNDER the total winner.
