Illinois didn’t have too much trouble with the Maryland Terrapins at home last week as they won 76-64. It was another big night for Illinois’ center Kofi Cockburn, who dropped a double-double on 23 points and 18 boards. That makes it seven consecutive games in which Cockburn has had at least ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Cornhuskers suffered a grim 93-65 defeat to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights this past Saturday. The top scorer for Nebraska was guard Bryce McGowens (17 points).

The Fighting Illini are the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

Illinois is now 11-3 while Nebraska sits at 6-10. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Illinois comes into the game boasting the 25th most points per game in college basketball at 80.4. Less enviably, the Cornhuskers are stumbling into the matchup with the eighth most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 78.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Nebraska.
