Why Northwestern Wildcats are a good bet +2

Northwestern had a bad regular season. The Wildcats ended up with a 13-18 record. But, there was a silver lining to how Northwestern played. While the Wildcats failed in most areas, they were terrific on defense.

Northwestern only allowed 64.8 points per. Opponents shot 41.9% from the field and 29.2% from three. The Wildcats three-point defense ranked fifth in the nation. Northwestern will lean on their three-point defense in this game. Unless Illinois finds a way to get an inside game going, the Wildcats will have a shot.

Why Illinois Fighting Illini are a good bet -2?

Is Illinois a secure bet in the Big Ten Tournament?

The Illinois have an awful 11-20 regular season record. That makes Illinois the worst regular season team in the Big Ten. However, the Fighting Illini played well in their last 10 regular season games, going 5-5 straight up and covering in 5 out of their final 10.

One of the wins was over Big Ten heavyweight Michigan State. They also beat Northwestern 81-76 as a -4.5 home favorite on March 3. Illinois is simply playing better than Northwestern is. They’ll win and cover on March 13.

  • Points/G: 73

Northwestern vs Illinois Final NCAAB Betting Analysis

These two teams play different styles. Northwestern prefers to slow everything down while Illinois wants to speed everything up. The key for the Wildcats will be stopping Illinois from having success behind the three-point line.

The Illini were able to hit 3 out of 16 from behind the three-point line, that’s 37.5%, in the win over the Wildcats. But, Northwestern’s defense will step it up on Wednesday night while Illinois might be too pumped up to face a team like the Wildcats.

Although the Wildcats have been awful, they did hold Ohio State to 50 points on March 6, Wisconsin to 69 on Feb. 23, Minnesota to 62 on Feb. 28, and Purdue to 70 on March 9. Illinois will have a horrible time adjusting if Northwestern plays their style. The Wildcats get the nod.
