Free Columbia Lions vs. Brown Bears NCAAB Prediction:
Brown was able to sneak out a slim, two-point victory in their last meeting with Columbia. Since, the Lions have simply been getting worse on both ends of the floor. It is for this reason that I will back the Bears at home (where they have won three straight) to take care of a Lions team that continues to struggling while dropping four of their last five road games. Look for the home team to pick up the 78-70 win in the end.
