Northern Iowa Panthers vs. Loyola (IL) Ramblers NCAAB Free Pick 02/18/15
Play Northern Iowa Panthers -8.5.
WOW, the Panthers are on a roll, winners of 14 straight and they take on the shorthanded Ramblers of Loyola Chicago on Hump Day. When you look at the matchup edges for the Panthers here, rarely do you see in CBB game where one team has a clear edge in every stat category that counts, Defense, offense, free throw percentage, 3 point percentage, depth, assists, rebounding, and quite frankly overall talent.
All these stats favor Northern Iowa tonight and they are playing a team offensively challenged and having only 1 starter averaging double digits and the Ramblers star Doyle is still out with injury. Did I mention the Panthers are ranked 13th in the nation in FG %? One thing I have noticed about Northern Iowa is they are getting better as the season progress’s and in fact I feel they are the best team in the Mo Valley, and yes that includes Wichita State whom they have already beaten this season quite handily. UNI is 12-3-1 ATS their last 16 road games, have shot 53% from the floor in their last 5 games and 80% from the free throw line, and while Loyola – Chicago does play some defense, the Panthers are way too much for them and I am willing to lay a number on the road which is rare for me at this price.
