Michigan vs. Illinois CBB Prediction:
Both teams look to get back in the win column on Tuesday night.
Take Illinois. Michigan is a disaster, they can’t defend and offensively they have struggled on the road. Illinois can score points in a hurry, and I don’t think they show much mercy after Saturday’s lost to Michigan State. This is a route lay the number with the Illini.
