Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Illinois State vs. Loyola Chicago
Saturday, January 12, 2019 2:00 PM
Play: Point Spread: 9.5/-110 Illinois State
Both of these MVC squads come into this matchup with identical records of 9-7 overall and 2-1 in conference. The clear difference is Illinois State doesn’t have near the point differential in comparison to the Ramblers so the Redbirds come in as significant dogs. These were the two popular picks to finish at the top of the MVC this season and both teams haven’t played up to those expectations. All of Illinois State’s MVC games this season have finished within 1 possession. Loyola Chicago is still the most dangerous team in the MVC when playing up to their potential, but the Ramblers have had a tougher time this year given the bigger target on their backs. The Ramblers get everyone’s’ best coming off the luster of their Final Four appearance last season. Loyola Chicago looked awful in their last outing falling at Evansville by a final of 48-67. The Ramblers rely too much on their defensive strengths which can lead to a lot of competitive lower scoring games. Illinois State was a popular pick to win the MVC and if the Ramblers want to prove themselves, now is their best chance at Loyola Chicago. We expect a defensive lower scoring matchup and with the points getting more value we’ll side with the Redbirds and the points.
