Here we go again for the No. 1 team in the country… For four straight weeks, the top team in the land has been knocked off, and once again, that could be the case for the Hoosiers, who are on the road twice this week. This is the tougher of the two games for sure, as the Illini badly need a win like this one to keep their season alive. It’s tough to justify backing this Illinois team right now. The club has lost three straight and six out of seven, and it hasn’t won a home game since January 5th against the Ohio State Buckeyes. However, we think that Indiana is going to have a bit of a hangover in this one. The win over the Michigan Wolverines was arguably the best of the season, and there is a chance that the team comes out fattened up by that triumph. The road hasn’t always been kind to IU this season, knowing that both the Northwestern Wildcats and Iowa Hawkeyes were able to challenge it. This is probably the toughest road game that the team has had thus far in the Big Ten portion of the schedule, and we think that G DJ Richardson and the crew might be able to shoot the Illini into a position to pull off one of the bigger upsets of the season in this one.
