The Loyola Chicago Ramblers and Michigan State Spartans face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown in the Battle of Atlantis at Imperial Arena.
The Loyola Chicago Ramblers come into this game with a 4-0 record overall and in their last game against UIC they were able to come away with the 80-63 victory. The 80 points put up was actually the lowest number they have put up so far this season. The Ramblers come into this game averaging 91 points while their defense is giving up 60.3 points per game. The best player for Loyola Chicago is Ryan Schwieger who is averaging 14.8 points while shooting 51.4 percent from the field. Forward Aher Uguak is also having a big season averaging 13.5 points while shooting 65.6 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan State Spartans who sit with a 3-1 record overall and the only loss came against the Kansas Jayhawks in the first game of the season Outside of thiat Jayhawks game, Michigan State’s defense has been strong. In the last game against Eastern Michigan, the Spartans came away with the 83-59 victory. The Spartans are averaging 80 points while their defense is giving up 61 points per game. Forward Gabe Brown has been the top player for Michigan State averaging 14 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field. Marcus Bingham Jr also has looked impressive this season averaging 12.8 points while shooting 58.3 percent from the field.
Chicago Loyola is 5-1 against the spread in their last six neutral site games. Michigan State is 1-8 against the spread in their last nine neutral site games. The over is 4-0 in Loyola Chicago’s last four games overall. The under is 5-1 in Michigan State’s last six games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
The Michigan State Spartans defense has been good,but I also expect the Ramblers are going to want to try and keep this pace slow. This game is going to take on a snail's pace, and the under will cash with ease.
