Big Ten Title Odds

After missing out on a fifth-straight Big Ten title in 2021, Ohio State is once again the heavy favorite to take home the crown in 2022.

The Buckeyes are anywhere from -200 ($20 wins $10) to -280 ($28 wins $10) to win the Big Ten, depending on the sportsbook. That implies they have a greater than 60% chance to take it home -- more than every other team combined.

Last year, Michigan beat Ohio State in the final game of the regular season, then went on to beat Iowa to capture its first Big Ten title under Jim Harbaugh. The Wolverines are the second team on the board in 2022 at most sportsbooks at around +900.

Wisconsin, the favorite to win the West Division, is next at anywhere from +1000 to +1400, depending on the sportsbook. Then there's a huge glut of teams from +1600 to +3000 -- Penn State, Michigan State, Iowa, Nebraska, Purdue and Minnesota.
