The Braves are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Missouri Valley and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Ramblers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Bradley and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Braves last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Ramblers last 5 road games.
The Bradley Braves are playing well enough recently to where they can win a game like this at home, even though they've struggled in conference play. The Loyola-Chicago Ramblers enter this game shooting nearly 50 percent from the field and winning by an average of nine points in their last five games. Bradley is just 3-9 ATS at home this season and have lost four of their last six home games SU. I considered Bradley and the free bucket, but the Braves are too inconsistent for me and Loyola-Chicago is head and shoulders the best team in this conference. Give me the reasonable chalk.
