2022 Big Ten Tournament Odds, Schedule, Bracket: Purdue, Illinois the Favorites, But Anybody’s Championship to Win

2022 Big Ten Tournament Odds, Schedule, Bracket: Purdue, Illinois the Favorites, But Anybody’s Championship to Win article feature image

The Big Ten Tournament is anyone’s to win — well, out of the top eight or nine teams, that is.

Still, that means the vast majority of the conference has a chance to knock off favorites Purdue and Illinois to take this title.

Wisconsin and Illinois are the conference’s regular season winners after a ridiculous last day of the regular season in which the Badgers lost by one to a cellar dweller Nebraska team.

Wisconsin comes into this contest No. 2 in seeding but No. 4 in the odds.

Purdue, Illinois and Iowa, respectively are all above them.

That’s because the Badgers are fifth overall in then conference, according to the advanced metrics.

The Boilermakers are the highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 13 overall, according to KenPom, but Iowa isn’t far behind at No. 14.

Illinois is ranked No. 18 in the country by KenPom, while Wisconsin comes in at No. 30 — three spots below Ohio State, which is +1000 to win the conference tournament.
