Loyola has beaten No. 6 Miami, No. 3 Tennessee and No. 7 Nevada to reach the Elite Eight. Leaving the 11th-seeded Ramblers as the biggest 2018 March Madness surprise. Loyola sits in the South Region that has already lost its top four seeds making their path to the final four easier.

Why Bet K-State To Beat Loyola-Chicago In The Elite Eight
Can Kansas State slow down Loyola’s dream season? Should you bet on K-State to beat the Ramblers? Let’s dive in to see what K-State’s odds are of making it to the Elite Eight.
The 9th-seeded Wildcats beat No. 8 Creighton, No. 16 UMBC and shocked 5th-seeded UK to make it to the Elite Eight. No expert, least of all me, thought of Kansas State as a serious March Madness threat. They have held off another Cinderella team (UMBC) and upset a blue-chip program (John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats).
K-State is a smart bet to beat Loyola because while all eyes will be on the previously unknown Ramblers, the Wildcats can enjoy a distraction-free two nights before tip-off.
Loyola-Chicago vs K-State Elite Eight ATS Pick
The South Region that once featured powerhouses like Virginia, Arizona, Tennessee, and Cincinnati. Instead, it will be Kansas State and Loyola-Chicago playing at Philips Arena on Saturday for the right to advance to San Antonio.
I fought over who I was going to bet on in this tilt, but in the end, K-State has proven in its last two games that gritty play can beat hopes (UMBC) and talent (UK).
