NCAA basketball betting heats up on ESPN U on Tuesday as #21 Illinois hosts Wofford.
The Illini are heavily favored at home in college basketball betting as they look to stretch their season opening win streak to four. Here is a look at some NCAA basketball betting numbers to consider for this Tuesday night prime time matchup.
NCAA basketball betting has Illinois being led by Demetri McCamey who is second in the country in assists, averaging 8.3 per game. Mike Davis is 10th in the country in rebounds, averaging 12 per game. You would think with those numbers that Illinois would be good in scoring and it is true as they rank 9th in the country in scoring at 90 points per game this college basketball season.
Illinois rarely loses non-conference games. Under head coach Bruce Weber the Illini is 72-11 in regular season non-conference games and that includes 42-4 at home. In their last NCAA basketball betting game, Illinois routed Presbyterian by a score of 94-48.
