Against The Spread Pick
The Illinois Fighting Illini and Iowa Hawkeyes face off on Saturday and in this game the value lies with the visiting squad to cash. Everyone seems to be overlooking Illinois again with this line. Coming into this game they have won seven games in a row and three of those games were on the road. The Hawkeyes have also played fine, but they haven’t covered a spread in any of the last three games. Over the last five games the Fighting Illini’s defense is giving up only 59.4 points per game, and that will allow them to stay in this game. Back the Fighting Illini to cover the spread in this game.
Over Under Pick
With the way the Fighting Illini’s defense has played this total is way too high. The under is 8-2 in the Hawkeyes last ten homes. The under is 9-4 in the Fighting Illini’s last 13 games overall. The under is 11-4-1 in the last 16 meetings played between the two teams. Back the under to cash in this game.
