Minnesota Opens As 7.5 Point Favorites vs Illinois


I don't know about you, but I'm very surprised by this. I know the Gophers have played well over the past three weeks against Top 15 opponents, but they've also lost the past three weeks. I wouldn't say I'm confident they'll beat Illinois, but I certainly think they're capable of doing so. Just not so sure about the health of this Gopher defense at the moment. Vegas must not be buying into the Illinois that showed up against Purdue two weeks ago.
