Illinois vs Chattanooga Prediction | March Madness Picks and Bracketology

While the Fighting Illini have struggled to cover the spread in recent games, the opponents were also much tougher. Chattanooga is coming off a game in which Furman took them to overtime.

This Illinois team has guard play and a big Kofi Cockburn in the middle, making them one of the most dangerous teams in the NCAA Tournament. At their best, they can compete with anyone. And the worst is still not that bad, because of the balance we just talked about.

Given that Chattanooga struggles to create offense and guard the rim, we shouldn’t think too hard about this game. Illinois is a mismatch, and they’ll cover the spread as a result.
