Ohio State vs. Illinois Spread

The Ohio State vs. Illinois spread was listed at -3.5 in favor of the Buckeyes. 

ESPN.com notes:

The Illini's last win in this series came in 2007 when Ohio State was ranked No. 1 in the country. These Buckeyes have already lost two Big Ten conference games for the first time since 2004 and are in danger of falling below .500. So they're desperate, though they expect to get quarterback Braxton Miller back from an ankle injury. The Ohio State defense must contain quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase and receiver A.J. Jenkins, who have developed into the most dangerous big-play combo in the league.
