Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Rutgers lost most of their games and they are yet to play Penn State and Ohio State after Illinois. The Knights have struggled to get past Minnesota and Maryland as they were restricted to just seven points in each game. Sportsbooks have not been in full support for Rutgers with their poor record this season. Overall, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have a long way to get back on track and they must win every possible game.

Illinois Fighting Illini

Illinois has won just two of their five conference games, but they seem to be in a better position than Rutgers. The Fighting Illini has played well in the past, but a little more effort could have brought them closer.
