Northwestern vs. Illinois,
03/13/2019 21:00 EDT,
Score: 69 - 74
Point Spread: -1½/-109 Illinois
These two teams split there two regular-season meetings, but it was Illinois who covered both times. Illini lost by just 2 at Northwestern as a 7.5-point dog and won by 5 as a 4-point home favorite. That's now 8 straight covers in the series for Illinois and I think they make it 9 straight without much problem. Northwestern is on a slide going 1-11 in their last 12 games and leading scorer Vic Law is questionable, as is third leading scorer Ryan Taylor. They only have 3 guys averaging double-figures. Take Illinois here.
