#10 Loyola Chicago Ramblers vs #7 Ohio State Buckeyes. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Loyola Chicago Ramblers.

 

Ohio State is a good team, but they are not performing well away from home this season, with a 5-6 road record and a 1-2 neutral-site record. Because of Liddell’s and the Buckeyes’ offensive woes, I’m going with Loyola Chicago to cover this modest spread. The Loyola Chicago Ramblers will win to a predicted score of 69-66.
