Nebraska +3.5 over Illinois (loss)
Illinois lost most of its firepower from last year and did an excellent job of reloading, but it is different from the same team from last year. Nebraska is getting better and plays well at home. The Cornhuskers lack a standout superstar and play a ball style where everyone contributes. The oddsmakers made this a low spread because Nebraska doesn’t foul on defense but gets to the charity stripe on offense. Look for the refs to give Cornhuskers the majority of the calls tonight. Look for Head Coach Fred Hoiberg to have his team ready to play tonight and for the crowd to keep the Cornhuskers in the game. Take Nebraska.
