Oddsmakers think Ohio State has the best chance to win the Big 10 this upcoming football season.

According to odds from BetOnline.ag, the Buckeyes are at 2/3 to win the B1G in 2021. Wisconsin is second at 8/1. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Michigan and Penn State are tied for third at 17/2. You can see the full list of odds below.

Ohio State and Wisconsin leading the way makes a lot of sense. In fact, I’d argue that it’d be incredibly foolish to pick anyone else.

Both teams figure to be absolutely loaded this season. Sure, OSU will be breaking in a new quarterback, but it shouldn’t matter.

Ryan Day has enough talent on his roster than any gunslinger with a solid amount of talent should make sure the Buckeyes compete for a national title.

As for the Badgers, we all know that our season rides and dies with Graham Mertz’s arm. If Mertz plays like he did before the team was destroyed by injuries and COVID, then Wisconsin is going to be awesome.

We returned the majority of our starters from 2020, and I expect that to pay major dividends down the stretch.

As for the rest of the B1G, you can expect them to just play catchup to OSU and the Badgers. I expect it to be a two-man race all season long.
