Illinois State vs Eastern Washington Free Pick

The Illinois Redbirds will visit the Eastern Washington Eagles today in a quarterfinal FCS matchup. The Redbirds had an impressive win last weekend 38-37 over Appalachian State as they blocked an extra point in overtime. It was the sixth consecutive road win this season for Illinois State.

Offensively the Redbirds’ quarterback Matt Brown leads the team and had five passes for touchdowns last week. Brown has completed 62% of his passes this season and is just two yards shy of 3,000 yards for the season. He has thrown 25 touchdown passes, which is just one shy of a new school record for a season. Brown’s top receiver is Tyrone Walker who has caught 81 of Brown’s passes including eight for touchdowns.  

The Eagles of Eastern Washington rank no. 9 in passing with over 300 yards each game. The current quarterback for the Eagles is Kyle Padron, who only has started twice the entire season but in those two starts has 708 yards through the air and three TD passes.

The Eagles will be facing the no. 9 ranked pass defense of Illinois State. The Redbirds have 16 interceptions this season.

Eastern Washington is 6-0 at home this year and is 16-2 SU overall at home since installing their now famous red turf.

Brandon Kaufman, the Eagles’ wide receiver, will be their deep threat as he has 75 receptions thus far for over 1,444 yards and 10 touchdowns. The solid passing game of Eastern Washington will be facing the strong secondary of Illinois State and that is what will make or break the game for the Eagles. If they can succeed in moving the ball, they should beat the Redbirds.

The line at this time has Eastern Washington as a favorite by 5 with the over under total on 54 ½. I like the Redbirds of Illinois State to cover, with the OVER cashing out on the total.
