St. Bonaventure vs. Loyola-Chicago Prediction

I’m on the Ramblers here. The line isn’t anything crazy and while the Bonnies have had a game to shake off the rust, this is a Loyola-Chicago team that’s been built for tournament basketball. Year in and year out for the most part, the Ramblers have been a threat in any league they’ve been in and I think this year is no different. St. Bonaventure may have won the last meeting, but I think the Bonnies are going to have a hard time breaking down the Rambler defense so give me Loyola-Chicago here.
