It’s that time of year where predictions and odds on all things college football are making the rounds. According to the online gambling site Bovada, the Buckeyes are once again favored to with the Big Ten title.
Ohio State Favorite To Win Big Ten Championship According To Bovada
Nobody wins championships on paper, but it’s fun to see where all the usual suspects project the landscape of college football to be this year.
And on that note, the online gambling site Bovada has been releasing its odds on college football lately, and it once again has Ohio State as the odds on favorite to win the Big Ten at 3-2.
The Buckeyes return a lot at the skill positions of wide-receiver and running back, as well as a deep and talented offensive line to help ease new starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins into the fray.
There is some retooling that must be done on defense, but the defensive line anchored by Nick Bosa should be lights out again, and the defensive coaching staff seems to have a handle on replacing NFL caliber defensive backs every year.
Wisconsin is listed as the next best bet at 14-5, and Michigan — not Penn State — is third at 11-2.
Now we’ll just have to see if expectations meet reality in 2018, or if another East Division challenger can emerge.
