The Indiana Hoosiers are led in scoring by Trayce Jackson-Davis who averages 18.3 points and 7.7 rebounds for this team. Race Thompson averages 11.4 points and 7.7 rebounds a game for this team. Xavier Johnson is the third leading scorer for the Hoosiers as he averages 10.5 points a game for this team.

Although the Hoosiers are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 home games, I don’t see them winning this one as Illini is a stronger team on offense. Both teams are having impressive seasons, but Illinois has the better talent. The Illini are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, I’ll back Illinois in this one.
