Minnesota Golden Gophers @ Illinois Fighting Illini

Pace of play

  • MINN- 31.27 seconds per play (2nd slowest in the NCAA)
  • ILL- 26.77 seconds per play (89th overall)


  • MINN- get their star RB back but still has a poor passing attack and without the star WR for the rest of the season should struggle vs a top 5 defense. 
  • ILL- decent rushing attack but outside the top 100 for passing and has struggled all year.


  • MINN- I don't think the number do them justice even though the numbers aren't that back top 35 overall but in my mind top 20-25 in the Country 
  • ILL- we all saw and know what ILL has on defense only giving up 8pts a game so far this year and a well rounded elite defense that keeps them in games

KEY Injuries

  • ILL- starting QB is Questionable and would be a huge loss.
  • MINN- gets Mohamed Ibrahim back which is huge for them


  • Reports of consistent winds of up to 17mph going cross field. 

The play is the full game is under 39.5 (-110)

Bet responsibly.
