Northwestern vs Illinois Prop Bet

All Northwestern-Illinois betting odds, lines and props available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

- Home Team (Illinois) Total Points: Under 70.5 (-115) – The Northwestern Wildcats are quietly effective on the defensive end. Northwestern surrenders only 64.5 points per game (26th in the NCAA), and the Wildcats' defense excels at running opponents off the 3-point line. Opponents are making only 5.1 3-pointers per game against Northwestern (fourth in the NCAA). That could be a problem for the Illinois Fighting Illini, as Illinois attempts 23.8 3-pointers per game, but only hits 8.0 of those attempts per contest (132nd in the NCAA).
