Dave’s Free Play, Sunday 2/17/13

  • February 17, 2013

Baseball previews will be starting shortly. Early emphasis will be mostly team breakdowns, but there will also be some fantasy analysis featured along the way. Figure on March 1 as the official starting date for everything.

Early bird baseball rates are available now as well. For info, contact me directly at cokin@cox.net.
02/17 04:30 PM CB (819) ILLINOIS VS (820) NORTHWESTERN

Take: (819) ILLINOIS

Illinois is going to be a very popular play today. That more often than not causes me to consider the other side, but not this time. The Illini are on a roll and I expect them to stay hot as they take on a Northwestern entry that has all kinds of injury issues. Off the recent big wins, this might be the type of spot where Illinois could go flat. But with a major revenge factor from the earlier pasting delivered by the Wildcats, I can’t see that happening here. I can’t consider a big play on Illinois as there is absolutely no value at this number. But I’ve gotten paid by this team a couple of times recently, so I don’t have much of an issue supporting them again today. Make it Illinois minus the points for the Sunday comp opinion.
