Stephen Bruce

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Illinois is a 3.5-point favorite over Nebraska.

The over/under is 44.5.

A quick look at Illinois schedule so far:

  • vs Toledo — 30-28 Illinois win
  • at Kansas — 34-23 Illinois loss
  • vs Penn State — 30-13 Illinois loss
  • vs Florida Atlantic — 23-17 Illinois win
  • at Purdue — Boilers killed Illinois 44-19

At this point, Illinois is sitting at 2-3 just like our beloved Huskers. The Purdue scoring is surprising, and they didn’t play horribly against Penn State.
