We have updated Big Ten football odds, and Ohio State is still at the top.

According to odds from BetOnline.ag, the Buckeyes lead the way at +110. Michigan followed in second place at +225, Penn State is an extremely distant third at +900 and Wisconsin and Nebraska are tied at +1400. (RELATED: July Is The Final Month Of 2019 Without College Football)

In odds released in early June, Ohio State was at +100, Michigan was at +200 and Penn State was all the way back at +1400.

Clearly there has been a bit of a shift in the past month as more and more stuff gets sorted out heading into the season.

As for the latest patch of odds, it’s clear to anybody with eyes that people are very high the Buckeyes. Not only are they the favorite, but they’re a solid amount ahead of Michigan.

When it comes to the Wolverines, oddsmakers really seem to think they’re the only team capable of hanging with OSU.

After that, there is a gigantic fall off.

I understand Wisconsin not being as high as Michigan and OSU. As a Badger fan, I still see things with clear eyes. We don’t deserve to have the highest odds, which will only make our payoffs that much better in the end.

Having said that, the odds being at +1400 is outrageous. Did half the team quit without anybody being told but the oddsmakers? Is Jonathan Taylor not playing?

Those are the only reasons that would justify the number being that low.

Keep doubting my Badgers. Doubt us all you want. We’ll just keeping grinding out, and then we’ll cash in when it’s all said and done.

See you at the end of the season when I’ll be counting my money.
