Chattanooga Mocs will be in danger of suffering their first loss of the season on Thursday afternoon when they take on the Big Ten counterparts Illinois Fighting Illini in one of the most interesting games of Week No 4 in NCAAF. The Mocs are an FCS school playing in the Southern Conference. They seemed more than convincing in all three victories so far in the campaign. Nevertheless, they will still enter this tie as 18-point underdogs.

Illinois Fighting Illini are 2-1 so far in the season but they will enter this outing encouraged after a demolishing 24-3 win over Virginia last time out. We don’t need to waste words on the Fighting Illini’s defensive display on the occasion. Instead, we will say that their offense also ranks fourth in the Big Ten in rushing yards per match so far in the season. Junior running back Chase Brown certainly has a lot to do with this because his 75 carries for almost 500 yards so far in the season represent elite numbers. We expect a strong performance from Illinois on their own patch here and we will back them to win in -18 point spread at the -110 odds.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Chattanooga Mocs are yet to run into an elite defense this season

  • They will do so on Thursday against Illinois
  • The Fighting Illini have conceded only 9 points in total in the opening two home games of the season
  • The line is low indeed, but we still have to go with the Under

The sportsbooks expect a low-scoring affair here, setting the Over/Under line at 39 points only. We really can’t disagree much on this based on everything we’ve seen so far in the season from both teams. After all, the Fighting Illini have only conceded nine points in total over two home outings so far in the season. Chattanooga did win all of their three opening games but they are yet to face an opposition as tough as Illinois. We expect the Mocs’ offensive line to struggle when they run into an elite defense for the first time this season. The bet is Under 39 points at the -110 odds.
