Illinois Fighting Illini vs Marquette Golden Eagles 11/15/2021 Picks Predictions Previews


The Illinois Fighting Illini of the Big Ten will be hosted by the Marquette Golden Eagles of the Big East in Fiserv Forum, WI, on Monday, November 15, 2021, at 7:00 PM ET. In their first two matches, the Fighting Illini faced two cupcakes and cruised to comfortable victories.


They defeated SWAC rival Jackson State 71-47 before destroying Arkansas State 92-53 as 17.5-point favorites. So, they’re good, but they were not put to the test yet.


The Illini are returning from a fantastic season in which they went 24-7 overall and 16-4 in the Big Ten, earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament but losing in the second round.


Kofi Cockburn, a big player who produced 17.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per game last year, is the key guy. He was chosen to the Big Ten’s first team. Trent Frazier and Andre Curbelo, starters a year ago, are also back.


The issue is that Cockburn was suspended by the squad and will be out until November 21. As a result, Jacob Grandison stepped up to fill the void, scoring 15 points against Arkansas State.


Coleman Hawkins had 17 points and 12 rebounds while Frazier had 12 points and 12 rebounds. The Illini outscored Arkansas State 56-32 and shot 45% from the field.


  • The University of Illinois is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Illinois’ last 9 matches.
  • The Fighting Illini is 8-1 SU in their last 9 away matches.

Illinois Fighting Illini vs Marquette Golden Eagles Predictions 11/15/2021


The Marquette Golden Eagles are 2-0 on the year, but they’ll have their work cut out for them against the 11th-ranked Fighting Illini, who are also 2-0. The Golden Eagles were 21-point favorites over SIU Edwardsville in their opening, but only won 88-77.


Then they battled against New Hampshire and won 75-70. The Golden Eagles are beginning from scratch this year, so it will be an intriguing year.


All five starters left the team, with DJ Carton turning pro and the other four transferring. Coach Steve Wojciechowski was followed out the door by the whole team after a poor 13-14 season.


The Golden Eagles hired Shaka Smart, a Texas native, as their new coach. However, he will have to construct the entire structure from the ground up. Marquette barely shot 40% in the victory over New Hampshire, going 7 for 27 from the three-point range.


The difference was that they made 24 free throws compared to only 14 for New Hampshire. Darryl Morsell led the team with 26 points and 5 assists, while Justin Lewis contributed 17 points and 11 rebounds.


  • The University of Marquette is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Marquette’s last 8 matches.
  • The Golden Eagles are 4-1 SU in their last 5 home matches.

Illinois Fighting Illini vs  Marquette Golden Eagles. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #11 Illinois Fighting Illini. For both of these clubs, this will be the most difficult test of the early season. Both are 2-0, but neither faced a true opponent.


Illinois took care of business and blasted away two lower-level opponents, but Marquette labored in both of its victories over lower-level opponents.


Despite the presence of Cockburn, Illinois will comfortably defeat Marquette. Let’s use Illinois as an example. The Illini will win to a predicted score of 27-17
