Indiana basketball travels to Champaign after snapping their three-game losing streak to take on a Fighting Illini squad that has won five straight games.

The Hoosiers have lost three of their last four matchups in Champaign and lost 67-66 in the last matchup where both Indiana and Illinois were unranked back on March 1, 2020.

Which Indiana basketball team shows up on Thursday night? Do we see another repeat performance as we saw against Penn State last week? Or, does Mike Woodson’s magic continue after a dominant defensive performance against Wisconsin on Saturday?

Indiana basketball @ Illinois best bet: Hoosiers +6 & Over 144.5

My best bet for Indiana basketball would be to bet on the Hoosiers to cover the 6-point spread & both teams to combine for over 144.5 points.

A $100 parlay bet on the Hoosiers to cover the spread and the over could potentially bring in a profit of $264.47. I would be shocked if Indiana doesn’t at least cover the large spread, even with the Penn State game still lingering in my head.
