Michigan vs. Illinois point spread may surprise you

Sharing is caring!

On Monday afternoon, the latest AP Top 25 poll was released and Michigan, as expected, moved up to No. 2 in the poll, passing Baylor, who lost to Kansas this past week.

Up next for the Wolverines could be their toughest matchup of the season as they host No. 4 Illinois on Tuesday night.

But if you look at the opening point spread for the game, you would not think it is a matchup between two top four teams as the Wolverines have opened as an 8.5 point favorite over the Illini.

Nation, will Michigan take care of business and over the 8.5 point spread when they take on Illinois?

  1. Illinois’ top guard is injured and if he even plays he will likely be way below full strength. An injury sustained due to a bush league MSU foul that led to a flagrant/toss from the game. Reminds us all of the dirty play of the Bad Boys before the era of the GOAT. Consider the circumstances of the well rested Wolverines compared to an Illini team who played a full schedule and without a full strength All American guard. So who is the pressure on here after all?
