The Loyola-Maryland Greyhounds and the Colgate Raiders meet in college basketball action from the Cotterell Court on Thursday as part of the Patriot League Conference Tournament. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Colgate is listed as a 16.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 144.5 points.


Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Colgate’s 76-63 win over Loyola-Maryland back on January 30th, 2023, swept the season series and made it five straight wins for Colgate in this head-to-head matchup.


Loyola-Maryland is 7-16 ATS in their last 23 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the over is 9-1 in their last 10 games overall. Colgate is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 18-8 ATS in their last 26 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games following an ATS win.


I’m backing Colgate here. The Greyhounds looked good in their last game against Holy Cross, but this is a Colgate team that’s been putting up offensive clinics at home down the stretch as they scored 96 and 93 points in their last pair of home games and have averaged 80.2 PPG at home this season. Loyola-Maryland’s averaging just 60.2 PPG on the road this year and I don’t see them having much success in this one as I feel like Colgate’s on a mission to get back to the big dance. I’ll lay the points with Colgate in this one.
