March Madness Picks: Bet Yale to Cover ATS

After Princeton knocked Arizona and Missouri out of the 2023 March Madness bracket and based on Yale’s recent history, Power-5 teams can’t be too excited to see the Ivy League champion land in their bracket. Our college basketball betting odds have Auburn as a double-digit favorite against Yale.

After rallying from six points down with less than 30 seconds to play to win the Ivy League tournament, Yale’s reward is a trip to Spokane to face an Auburn team that finished a game out of first place in the SEC during the regular season.

Auburn is 6-0 in March with five of the wins coming by double digits, so keep that in mind heading into this matchup.

Auburn continues to play without guard Lior Berman.

Auburn is fourth in defensive efficiency according to the Pomeroy college basketball ratings. Yale is comfortable playing in low-scoring games, so it won’t be a surprise to see this game go under the total.
