Big Ten odds: Ohio State favored to win East Division, defend conference title

Sports book Bovada released its odds Thursday for college football conference champions, and Ohio State is again favored to seize the Big Ten title in December. In similar news, water is wet.

The Buckeyes sit atop the list with 3:2 odds to win the conference, ahead of Wisconsin at 14:5 and Michigan at 11:2. Meanwhile, a Saquon Barkley-less Penn State is at 6:1 and Michigan State at 10:1 round out the top-five contenders.

Bovada’s release also contained the odds for both of the Big Ten’s divisional champions, in which they believe it will be a rematch in Indianapolis with Ohio State (21/20) favored to win the East Division and Wisconsin (4/9) favored to win the West.
