The Quakers already have a win over Columbia this season, and I don't think a change in venue is going to be enough for the Lions to not only reverse an eight point loss, but turn it into a double-digit win. Penn is one of the most underrated teams in the Ivy League this season. They are in the top half of the conference standings in points per game. While the defense has struggled at times, the Quakers did managed to hold the Lions to a mere 60 points in the first meeting of the season.
The Lion's confidence cannot be very high coming into this matchup. They were crushed in their last outing against Harvard, losing that game by 33 points. The oddsmakers have severely undervalued the Quakers in this matchup. Penn is 28-13 ATS in road games after having lost four or five of their last six games. Columbia is coming into this matchup with a 1-8 ATS record after having won four of their last five games. Both of these trends point to the oddsmakers tendency to undervalue Penn when they are on a losing streak, and overvalue the Lions on a win streak.
