Illinois is ranked 4th in the nation right now with a 19-6 record. They are led by junior guard Ayo Dosunmu and sophomore center Kofi Cockburn. Dosunmu leads the team in scoring averaging 21.0 a night. Cockburn is second in scoring with 17.5, but also leads the team in rebounding at 9.8 a game. Illinois has won ten of their last eleven games, including wins over number 2 Michigan and number 5 Iowa.
Ohio State is ranked 7th in the nation with an 18-7 record. They are led by sophomore standout EJ Liddell. He leads the team in scoring (15.9) and rebounding (6.7). Ohio State has dropped three straight games, one of which to an unranked opponent. They’ll be looking to bounce back in this one. In their previous matchup “EJ Liddell had a huge game,” which could be something to watch out for in this game according to Nick.
In their last meeting, Ohio State got the upset by a score of 87-81. Despite losing three in a row, Ohio State has “had a week off to group,” and it could help push them to another upset victory over the Fighting Illini, as Nick explains in the video. Set as +4.5 underdogs in this one, it could be your perfect chance to make some money on the Buckeyes.
