Here are the questions and how to look at it:

Which team will score the last point of the first half?
Ohio State or Illinois

One of the things that has stood out early in the season is how dominant both teams have been in the first half defensively. After their Wednesday night win over Northwestern, Ohio State has outscored opponents 470-423. Illinois has outscored its opponents 502-413 through Wednesday evening as well. Something would have to give.

How many total 3 pointers will be made by both teams?
0-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20 and 21+

Ohio State has averaged 7.5 3-pointers per game after the victory over the Wildcats. Meanwhile, the Illini are also at 7.5 trifects a contest. Both teams also average around 7.4 3-pointers a game yielded on the defensive end as well.

How many points will the top scorer for Ohio State have?
0-14, 15-17, 18-20, 21-23, 24-26 and 27+

Duane Washington Jr. is the leading scorer for the Buckeyes, averaging 15.7 points a game. He did have 23 in the win over the Wildcats on Wednesday night. E.J Liddell and Justice Sueing are also averaging in double figures for the Buckeyes.

How many points will the top scorer for Illinois have?
0-14, 15-17, 18-20, 21-23, 24-26 and 27+

Ayo Dosunmu is leading the Illini, averaging 22.4 points per game thanks to a large part to a 50 percent shooting from the floor. He’s also teamed with Kofi Cockburn, who is averaging 17.3 points a game. Those are the only two Illinois players averaging in double figures.

How many total points will be scored in the game?
Less than 125, 125-135, 136-140, 141-145, 146-150 and 151+

Both teams can put some serious numbers up. Illinois is averaging 83.3 points per game and outscoring their opponents by 15.5 points a night. However, one trend to keep in mind is that Big Ten games have been far more reserved in the last few weeks. For instance, Illinois has scored in the 60s in three of its last four games- Indiana, Purdue and Maryland all at home.  Ohio State is averaging 76.8 points a game.

Who will win the game?
Ohio State or Illinois

The best ability that a Big Ten team could have this year is a short memory. Illinois’ 66-63 loss on Sunday at home to Maryland has been forced to marinate a little bit because a COVID-19 postponement against Nebraska this week has keep the Illini idle. Illinois is 6-1 at State Farm Center, and they have played really good basketball at home.  Ohio State has struggled away from Columbus, going 1-3 in conference play on the road court.
