Prediction

Expect a closely contested game between the Dayton Flyers and the Loyola Chicago Ramblers, making the under of 136.5 points the favorable pick. Here's why:

Both teams have demonstrated solid defensive capabilities throughout the season, limiting their opponents' scoring opportunities. With the stakes high in this matchup, expect intense defensive pressure from both sides, leading to a lower-scoring affair.

Additionally, both Dayton and Loyola Chicago prioritize ball control and efficient shot selection, which could result in longer offensive possessions and fewer fast-break opportunities.

Given the evenly matched nature of these teams and their defensive-minded approach, anticipate a game characterized by tough defense and strategic play, resulting in a final score that falls below the projected total.
