IUPUI @ Illinois-Chicago

Current Records: IUPUI 2-21; Illinois-Chicago 9-14

What to Know

The Illinois-Chicago Flames will be returning home after a two-game road trip. Illinois-Chicago and the IUPUI Jaguars will face off in a Horizon League battle at 8 p.m. ET on Monday at Credit Union 1 Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

The Flames came up short against the PFW Mastodons this past Saturday, falling 73-66.

Meanwhile, there's no need to mince words: IUPUI lost to the Cleveland State Vikings this past Saturday, and they lost bad. The score wound up at 83-45.

Illinois-Chicago is the favorite in this one, with an expected 18-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-7 against the spread when favored.

The losses put Illinois-Chicago at 9-14 and IUPUI at 2-21. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Flames have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.70% from the floor on average, which is the 13th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Jaguars have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 37.60% percent of their shots, which is the 357th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
