The Bradley Braves are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, where they're 13-3 SU on the season.

The Bradley Braves are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games, and they've actually lost 4 of their last 8 games as a favorite. The Loyola-Chicago Ramblers enter this game in better form and have the defense to pull off an upset. Should be a fun one. Give me the Ramblers and the points.
