Illinois is doing its best to work its way into the top 25 with a stellar 6-0 start straight-up. It is 2-2 against the spread and the total has stayed ‘under’ in three of its four games. The Illini are averaging 72.5 points a game while holding their opponents to just 53.7 points.

Maryland comes into this game at 3-2 SU with losses to Alabama and Iona in the Puerto Rico Tip Off. It is just 1-3 ATS and the total has gone 2-2. The Terrapins are averaging 65.4 points per game, but have been outscored by an average margin of close to five points a game.

Terrell Stogin has been a force with 20.2 points a game, but is only hitting 39.5 percent of his shots from the floor and 26.1 percent from three-point range. Maryland as a team is shooting just 43.1 percent from the field and pulling down 35 rebounds a game.

Stick with Illinois to run its streak to seven as the Terrapins are still trying to come together in the early going while the Fighting Illini are already in mid-season form.

The Pick: Illinois 68 vs. Maryland 59
