BOSTON U vs LOYOLA MD. PREDICTION
The Greyhounds are 6-1 at home and Boston U is 3-6 on the road which will give Loyola an advantage on their home floor. Boston won their last 2 meetings last year and lost in OT at Loyola. Loyola has lost 3 in a row while Boston U has won 6 of their last 7. This should be a high scoring game with minimal defense. Take the Over and Boston as should be able to win this game with their offense and cover the spread picking up where they left off last season. This line opened up at PK and it has moved all the way up to -4.5 at some books and has come down at others. Often when you see large line movements there is a reason for it and there are no new injuries listed so this will be a line you will want to watch all the way until the tip.
