|-5 ILL (-112) @ Draftkings|
Solid bounceback spot for the team with more top end talent here. Illinois has the clear higher upside any given game in this matchup. l\Week off for Illinois to get their shit together coming off the Maryland home loss, it's a spot they should clearly come to play. Credit to Ohio State for playing well in their last couple against 2 teams currently struggling (rutgers, northwestern). But they got thoroughly handled in the road game prior to the Rutgers win at Minnesota, and that was before vet guard Walker got hurt. Illinois coming off a disappointing letdown loss but not going through an ugly rough patch like Rutgers proved to be in last week in similar spot vs Ohio State, coming off a truly dreadful showing at Mich St.) Would really surprise me if Illinois doesnt win this game, take my chances they pullaway enough to cover this.
