MVC Game of the Year - Rickenbach CBB Rotation #781 Wednesday 10* Top Play Loyola-Chicago Ramblers (-) @ Indiana State Sycamores @ 6 ET - The Ramblers opened up as the favorite even though Indiana State is 9-0 at home this season. What does that tell you? Exactly! Don't be fooled here! Indeed, the road team is the play here. Loyola-Chicago is the better team. I know they lost their last two road games but that was against the two teams (Southern Illinois and Northern Iowa) that are the other two top teams (along with the Ramblers) in the conference. In Missouri Valley action, Loyola-Chicago has a history of performing well against the Sycamores (4 straight wins) and that includes winning each of their last two trips to Terre Haute as they continue to shoot well at the Hulman Center. I look for that to continue here. The Ramblers has won the last 3 games between these teams by an average margin of 21 points per game. Indiana State certainly wants to get off the schneid against Loyola-Chicago but the fact is the Ramblers are the better team and play with a ton of confidence in this venue. Also, they are anxious to get another road win after losing their past two road games against the other top tier teams in the MVC. Indiana State is a respectable team but they are not Northern Iowa and the Ramblers last two road losses came by just 5 points each. Tonight, against the Sycamores, they get over the hump and get a key MVC road win. The Ramblers, looking at FG %, have been better on both ends of the floor in comparison with the Sycamores this season and they are known for shooting well in match-ups at Indiana State. 10* LOYOLA-CHICAGO
