Wisconsin Badgers DFS Snapshot

Chucky Hepburn finished with 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and three steals over 25 minutes during Thursday's 73-65 win over Nebraska. Hepburn was efficient from the floor in Thursday's win and converted 55.6 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Illinois Fighting Illini DFS Snapshot

Kofi Cockburn produced 22 points (10-17 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one block over 30 minutes during Saturday's 59-56 victory over Northwestern. While point guard Andre Curbelo (illness) didn't travel with the team, the offense was just capable enough running through Cockburn, who led in both scoring and rebounding (as he's done all season). He took seven more shots than the next closest Illini player (Trent Frazier), and should continue to dominate the usage when Curbelo is out, making him an excellent play in daily formats as long as he can avoid foul trouble.

College Basketball Betting Prediction

The road team has covered in five of the last six meetings between these two teams, while the Badgers have covered in six of their last eight road games and are 5-2-1 at the betting window in their last eight games as an underdog. On the other side, the Fighting Illini are winless against the spread in their last four games overall and are 0-4 against the number in their last four games as a betting favorite.
