With a win on Saturday, the University of Illinois football program will have its first eight-win season since 2007. Unfortunately for Illini fans, there is a near-zero chance that Illinois is going to win on Saturday. So, the streak is going to extend until at least the season-ender against Northwestern.
Illinois has greatly outperformed its expectations this season under Bret Bielema, but it will not matter. Unless something completely looney tunes happens — Michigan is simply too good for an upset in this game.
As the meme goes, Illinois is Wish.com version of Michigan right now.
Illinois likes to play defense. Push the running game with a grinding offensive line. Set up the play-action pass. And just out-physical its opponent.
It just is not as good. Hence why, it is a 17-point underdog. Of course, that line doesn’t matter at all to you. It is all about that money line and the bonus.
Re-read that. This Draft Kings offer is based only on picking the winner. So do not get cute and think that taking Illinois +600 is going to help you. You will not collect anything unless you pick the winner. That is Michigan.
Michigan is playing at home. On Senior Day. Seriously, place a $5+ money line bet on Michigan versus Illinois and get $200 back if you pick the winner! (That’s $200 in addition to your winnings)
A $5 moneyline bet “wins” $0.50… but you put that $200 into the account and have a lot more to play with.
Illinois is severely banged up. Its leading rusher left in the fourth quarter of its loss to Purdue. Chase Brown is one the few running backs in the country that gets fed more than Blake Corum, and without him, the Illinois offense is doomed.
Its defense is hurting. Corners Tahveon Nicholson, Terrell Jennings, and Tyler Strain all either didn’t play or left the game against Purdue with injuries. Seth Coleman is recovering from a concussion and could weaken the linebacking group for Illinois.
Michigan is going to win this game. The moneyline could have actually been higher if it were not for the hollow record for Illinois. The Illini have “wins” against Wyoming, Virginia, Chattanooga, Wisconsin, and Nebraska. Wisconsin and Nebraska fired their coach. It is the first year for Tony Elliot at Virginia and… well, it’s Wyoming and Chattanooga.
Take Michigan and get $200 back when they win! (That’s $200 in addition to your winnings) Do it before DraftKings realizes how much money they’re giving away.
