Buckeyes Heavy Favorite To Win Big Ten Once Again

Stop us if you’ve heard this somewhere before, but Ohio State is favored to win the Big Ten this season.

This is the time of year when early college football odds start appearing and BetOnline has released their opening lines to win each of the Power Five conferences for the 2022 season.

The Buckeyes have the best odds of any Power Five team to win their conference as BetOnline has established Ohio State with 1/2 odds to win the Big Ten. Meaning, you would have to bet two dollars on Ohio State in order to win just one dollar.

The second-best odds in the Big Ten belong to Wisconsin at 10/1. That means if you bet a dollar on the Badgers and they win the conference, you win 10 dollars.

Michigan, Penn State, and Nebraska are next in line at 11/1, 12/1, and 14/1, respectively.

Here is the full rundown of how the Big Ten odds shake out.
