Vegas has a consensus line now down to -6. Pretty significant trend from -8.

And the beach houses are mostly surrounded by corn and feed lots. We have two rivers. One you can wade across half the year, and the other one I wouldn't get in without wearing a full dry-suit.
I believe You can find some sweet beach houses at Lake McConaughy near Ogallala. The lake is 20 miles long and surrounded by sand dunes. Lots of good windsurfing and waterskiing.

Not a better, so I don't understand how the line changes, but couldn't that mean that too many people are betting Illini? Or wait, is it the opposite, it makes Illinois less attractive to bet on? Nevermind...

More people betting on Northwestern to win/cover. If I were an objective viewer, I would take Northwestern plus 8. Hopefully we win period, but double digit win would be better for my anxiety level trying to sleep after an 8:00 pm start.

This feels right. But I wish I didn’t.
I hope Kofi goes off versus the lab rats. I think if he dunks 2-3 times early on, maybe rattles the rim for effect, their front court may curl up in the fetal position by the first media time out. That’ll bode well. #BeatTheNerds

I don't hate NU more than most Big Teams, and certainly not as much as the likes of Indiana (and now Iowa). Heck, I am not even sure if I "hate" them at all. With that said...

... few things would give me such a needed pick-me-up and fill me with as much joy right now than absolutely slaughtering the Wildcats tonight. :cool:

Chicagoland
I think nance, their big man, tries to stretch Kofi and take him out of the lane. He can hit jumpers pretty well and has a good post game (not the likes of Garza or Dickinson, but still good) . Hopefully Kofi can guard him out while still making his presence felt around the rim

I'm agreeing with someone earlier in the thread and I hope/think Miller has a good game tonight in Chi-town. Giorgi should help some on Nance also.

The addition of Collins, while possibly making them somewhat stable and mediocre to fair, adds a distaste to NU for me.. keeping some Illinois players close to home and having a few decent programs in the state, be it ISU, DP, Bradley, SIU is a good thing overall for the state and U of Illinois. That being said we need to smash them and be the top program without question and a top Big and national program at all times. That is how it is, and should be. IMO. 12 point win this evening. Betting my Peoria beach house on it.
