Illinois has managed to play somewhat tough at home this season while Wisconsin has looked a little shaky on the road, failing to cover in their last three away from home. Illinois has managed to cover in three of its last four home games and I think they will have enough offense to keep tonight’s game with the Badgers interesting.
