MVC Tournament Picks, Predictions, Odds

The Loyola-Chicago Ramblers area headed back to the NCAA Tournament after a 64-58 victory over Drake in the title game of the MVC Tournament, also known as 'Arch' Madness, in St. Louis.

Loyola was the favorite to win this event despite the fact it was the No. 4 seed, mostly because of the experience factor. The Ramblers didn't disappoint Sister Jean, the 102-year-old super fan, winning the MVC Tournament for the second consecutive season. This will be Loyola's second straight trip to the Big Dance, and third NCAA Tournament in the past five years, Who can forget its run to the Final Four as an 11-seed in the 2018 tournament?
