College basketball betting line handicappers have long respected Illinois but Penn State has been a new found surprise with successful college basketball bets.  The Fighting Illini of Illinois have come back this season as a reliable team against the college basketball betting line.

The Fighting Illini had an overall record of 23-6 straight up and 14-9-1 with their college basketball bets.  Illinois has been incredibly strong as an “under” team against the college basketball betting line with a mark of 7-16 under the total.

The strength of Illinois against the college basketball betting line has been their defense which was ranked 2nd in the nation.  The Fighting Illini closed February with a good run against the college basketball betting line as they got the cash in 4 of their final 6 games of the month.

Their top win against the college basketball betting line was on February 22 at Ohio State in a 70-68 upset win as 2.5-point dogs.  Illinois’ offense has not been a strength against the college basketball betting line as it ranked a poor 232nd nationally.  Leading scorer Demetri McCamey averaged just 11.8 points per game.

The Penn State Nittany Lions have never been a popular team with the public to take against the college basketball betting line but that is changing this year as PSU had a record of 20-9 straight up and 12-9-1 on their college basketball bets.

Penn State is similar to Illinois in that their strength against the college basketball betting line is their 36th ranked defense, while their offense ranked 210th.  Penn State, like Illinois, has been a reliable “under” team against the college basketball betting line as just 8 out of their 22 lined games have gone over the total.

Penn State won at Illinois earlier this season by the bizarre but fitting score of 38-33 as 9.5-point dogs as the game went well under the total of 123.
