The under is 6-2-1 in the Fighting Illini’s last nine games overall, is 5-2 in their last seven home games and is 41-20-1 in their last 62 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. The under is 8-1 in the Hoosiers’ last nine games as an underdog, is 8-2 in their last 10 road games and has hit in 12 of their last 17 games overall.
