The Columbia Lions will be taking on the Colgate Raiders on Mondy, December 6th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Cotterell Court.
The Raiders started off as a 20 point favorite and that number is now up to 21. The total has gone from 148 to 150.5.
Things have not looked so good for this Columbia team out of the gate. It could end up being a pretty bad season for them if they do not improve their game in a variety of ways.
The Lions beat Maine on Saturday by a score of 77-66. They will look to build off of that when they go against a team that can really score the ball in Colgate.
When you look at the schedule for this team, it is not like they have played a bunch of great competitions. Simply put, they really have not played great basketball against any team they are going against.
Against the Black Bears, the leading scorer was Geronimo Rubio De La Rosa, who had 24 points on the day. Patrick Harding added in 15 points and 17 rebounds as well.
Colgate has also not gotten off to all that great of a start. I do feel they will get better as the year goes on, but I am not sure how much better.
The Raiders currently have a record of 3-5. They have not played anybody who is all that good, but one win that stands out to me is the one over Syracuse. Even though the Orange are not a powerhouse, that was certainly an impressive victory for this program.
This squad last played on Friday, where they lost to Northeastern by a score of 74-69. They have played that team twice now and have split the games.
Scoring really was not the main issue for them in the loss to the Huskies. What really did them in was the 2nd quarter, where they got outscored by a 51-32 margin.

Free Columbia Lions vs. Colgate Raiders NCAAB Prediction:
Based on how both of these teams have played, it is hard to have much confidence in either of them.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Columbia ATS
I have very little confidence in Columbia to win the game outright, but I do think they can make the game more competitive than the line might indicate.
I do feel that Colgate is the better team here, but they have actually been worse in terms of against the spread. I look for that trend to continue in this game on Monday night.
For me, the 21 points are just too high to lay with the Raiders. I just do not trust them enough in this spot. I would be shocked if they do not win the game, but I do not see them covering the number.
I will take the Lions getting 21 points in this one.
