Loyola Chicago Ramblers (10-1; 5-2 ATS; 5-2 O/U) Milwaukee Panthers (6-5; 4-5 ATS; 4-5 O/U)

The Milwaukee Panthers will host the streaking Loyola Chicago Ramblers in an inter-conference clash Saturday afternoon from the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. The Ramblers crushed Norfolk State by an 80-52 score  in their previous action, and the Panthers are coming off a rough 82-63 road loss to Belmont on Wednesday night. Loyola Chicago notched a 72-56 victory against Milwaukee last season.

Ramblers Improve to 10-1 on the Season

The Loyola Chicago Ramblers dominated from start to finish in their 80-54 home win against Norfolk State last Saturday to improve to 10-1. The Ramblers shot an incredible 71% from the field and limited Norfolk State to a 32.8% clip. Donte Ingram was outstanding in the win, sinking 5 of 6 shots for a total of 15 points. The senior guard is having a consistent season, averaging 12.5 points on 46.5% shooting and leads the Ramblers with 6.9 rebounds per game. Ramblers top scorer Aundre Jackson scored eight points in 23 minutes of playing time in the blowout win against Norfolk State. The 6-foot-5 senior forward features a dazzling 69% field goal percentage, and is now up to 14.1 points per game.

The Ramblers are off to a terrific start to the season, winning 10 out of their first 11 games. They have taken advantage of an easy schedule, however they did prove themselves by taking down fifth ranked Florida by a 65-59 score earlier this month. Loyola Chicago is currently ranked at 74th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. They are averaging 77.9 points per game, ranking them 131st overall. The Ramblers are playing outstanding defense, holding opponents to an average of 65.4 points per game, good for 58th in the Country.

Panthers Offensive Struggles Continue in Loss to Belmont

The Milwaukee Panthers struggled in both ends of the floor in their 82-63 road loss to Belmont on Wednesday night. The Panthers shot a poor 38.5% from the field while Belmont was able to shoot 50%. Jeremiah Bell scored 20 points on 8 for 20 shooting in the loss. The junior guard is playing well, scoring a total of 41 points in his last two games, and is now up to 11.4 points on 39% shooting. Brett Prahl added nine points on a 4 for 6 clip from the field on Wednesday. The senior forward has failed to reach double-digits in points in three straight games, and is now posting 10.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Panthers’ tops corer Brock Stull sat out for the second straight game on Wednesday night with a knee injury, and is questionable for this contest. Stull is averaging 12.3 points per game.

Milwaukee has now dropped three out of their last four games and are struggling to score points with any consistency. They are ranked at 188th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. The Panthers are scoring an average of 66.5 points per game, ranking them 318th overall. They are strong defensively, allowing an average of 67.7 points, positioning them 93rd overall.

Trends:

The Loyola Chicago Ramblers are:

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
  • 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games following a straight up win.
  • 26-10 ATS in their last 36 road games against a team with a winning home record.

The Milwaukee Panthers are:

  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a road winning percentage above .600.
  • 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games.

I am taking Loyola Chicago in this contest. Loyola Chicago has been outstanding in both ends of the court and they recently defeated fifth-ranked Florida by a 65-59 score. They are shooting a sparkling 53.4% from the field and Milwaukee has not defended well, as opponents are shooting 45% against them. Furthermore, the Ramblers defensive play has been outstanding, as they have allowed 61 or fewer points in four out of their last five games and Milwaukee is a weak offensive team. They are only averaging 66 points and they will have a tough time against the Ramblers defense.
