Matchup History

These two teams have not met on the hardwood prior to this matchup.


Loyola-Chicago is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games following an ATS win while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 games following a loss. UMass is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 home games against a team with a losing road record.


I could make a case either way in this game, but I’m sticking with UMass here. Loyola-Chicago just has not been very good on the road this season and this Ramblers team is a far, far cry from the tournament darling that we made money with year in and year out a few seasons ago. I think UMass gets it done at home here so give me the Minutemen laying the points.
