The Fighting Illini are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games. The Spartans are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Spartans are also 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. I’ll back the Illini in this one as Michigan can get stale on offense while Illinois has an intense talent in Cockburn. He’s impact should be enough here.
