Illinois State vs. Stanford Free Picks

The Cardinal

A great postseason NIT matchup will pit the Illinois Redbirds against the Stanford Cardinal Monday March 19 at the Maples Pavilion in the tournament’s second round. The Redbirds won their last game by defeating the Rebels from Mississippi 96-93 in a high scoring affair. The Redbirds entered that game as a 6-point underdog and easily covered that spread with their 3-point victory.

Stanford won their last game March 13 against Cleveland State. The victory over Cleveland State was 76-65 and the Cardinal covered a 6-point favorite spread in the process. Overall Illinois State is 21-13 SU and 16-14 ATS this season. Stanford has a similar record of 22-11 SU and 16-14 ATS.

Both clubs have one player lost of the season due to injury. The Redbirds are 3-6 ATS over their last nine games playing away from home. The Redbirds are also just 5-16 SU over their last 21 games away from home. Stanford has won 4 of its last 6 game overall. The Cardinal are also 17-3 SU over their last 20 games playing at home.

The two teams have not played head to head recently. Illinois State is 4-1 SU over their last five games. Their only loss was to Creighton who is in the final 32 teams in the NCAA tournament. Stanford is 3-2 SU over their last five. The Cardinals’ last loss was to California in the season ending Pacific 12 tournament.

The current line has Stanford as a 7 1/2-point favorite with the total currently at 136. Stanford has played a much more difficult schedule than Illinois State. The balanced scoring attack of Stanford mixed with their tough defense will make it difficult for the Redbirds to work effectively on offense. The Cardinal will force the Redbirds into a number of needless turnovers. Smart money has Stanford minus the points with the total OVER. Check out our top sportsbooks for action on this game.
