Both teams can score and dominate the glass, so before you make any LSU vs. Yale picks, you'll want to see the 2019 NCAA Tournament predictions from SportsLine's proven computer model.

The model knows LSU held off Kentucky and Tennessee to win its first SEC regular-season championship in 11 years. The Tigers owned the 26th-toughest schedule in the country and recorded wins over the likes of Kentucky, Tennessee, Auburn, Ole Miss and Saint Mary's. Yale's strength of schedule, by contrast, ranked 132nd.
The balanced Tigers have four players averaging in double-figures, led by Tremont Waters (15.1. The team ranks a modest 62nd in field goal percentage (46.2) but makes up for it by averaging 12.4 offensive boards per game, second-most in the nation and tops among 2019 NCAA Tournament qualifiers.
LSU has covered in five of six overall and in 10 of 11 against teams like Yale with above-.600 win percentages. These teams also have one common non-conference opponent. LSU downed Memphis 85-76, while Yale lost to the Tigers 109-102 in overtime.
But just because the Tigers are the higher seed and more battle-tested doesn't mean they can cover the LSU vs. Yale spread.
This is Yale's second NCAA Tournament appearance in three seasons. The Bulldogs upset Baylor as a 12-seed in 2017 before nearly shocking Duke in the second round. Yale is a perfect 2-0 this season on neutral-site games, while LSU is just 2-3.
Sharp-shooting Yale averages a robust 81.1 points, thanks to a 49.6 field goal percentage, fifth-best in the country. Ivy League Player of the Year and 6-6 junior Miye Oni (17.6 ppg) leads a team that has four players averaging in double-figures. But they aren't a run-and-gun team. The Bulldogs also led the Ivy League in rebounding margin, field goal defense and assists. They're 20-1 when they out-rebound their opponents.
