The Spartans are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The Spartans are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games. I like for the Spartans to keep this game close and even possibly win outright as the fighting Illini are without their best player in Cockburn whose impact is too large.
