This year should feature much of the same drama as the top of the conference features many contenders.
2017 Big 10 Conference Odds: Ohio State Buckeyes +165
It’s really no surprise to see the Ohio State Buckeyes as the favorites to win the Big Ten Title Again.
It doesn’t matter who Ohio State loses Urban Meyer just reloads. He is probably the second best recruiter in all the country behind Nick Saban.
Ohio State has the most talent on their roster top to bottom by far in the Big Ten. But that doesn’t always mean success on the field. So how will the Buckeyes do this year?
One of the keys for the Buckeyes is JT Barret. He returned to Ohio State for his Senior Year but at times his play can be inconsistent.
If the Buckeyes want to win the Big Ten and make the FBS Playoffs, he is going to be key. If he can be a little more consistent this team can do big things.
Another big question for the Buckeyes is at the wide receiver position. They lost both Curtis Samuel and Noah Brown to the NFL draft, and they are going to need to have new guys step up.
The Buckeyes three biggest tests this year will be Oklahoma and in conference in Michigan and Penn State. They probably need to win two of those three to win the Big Ten, and get to the FBS.
2017 Big 10 Conference Odds: Michigan Wolverines +225
The Michigan Wolverines are going to be good this year and should be in a battle for the Big Ten Title again but the biggest question facing them is simple.
When they play Ohio State, will they be able to beat them. That game is a must win for them if they want a chance at the Big Ten Title game.
One of the biggest positives for the Wolverines if they have a solid quarterback in Wilton Speight.
One of the biggest problems Harbaugh has had at Michigan is he hasn’t really had a good quarterback yet, and it has led to some downfalls.
Speight however was good last year and he should bring some stability to that position. He is going to need to find some new targets to throw to though with Jehu Chesson and Jake Butt both gone.
The Wolverines start the season and end their season with their toughest tasks. They start the season against the Gators and end the season against the Buckeyes.
2017 Big 10 Conference Odds: Penn State +400
Penn State won the Big Ten Championship last year and they come in this year with the third best chances to win the Big Ten Title again.
The toughest thing for the Penn State is they are in the Big Ten East and will have to deal with Michigan and Ohio State to get into the title game.
But they have the weapons to do it. With Trace McSorley at Quarterback and Saquon Barkley at running back they might have the most explosive offensives in the Big Ten.
The big question for them is can they handle the pressure that is put on them. They are going to be a few high leverage games this year and it will be intersting to see how they handle the pressure.
2017 Big 10 Conference Odds: Wisconsin Badgers +650
On the Big Ten West side the Wisconsin Badgers are the favorites, and they probably won’t have much competition again this year.
When you have almost a free pass to the title game there usually is a ton of value in that pick.
They don’t have a question at quarterback but they have a lot of questions other places. With their top two running backs gone there is going to need to be someone to step up there.
They also lost TJ Watt and are going to need to find a way to replace his leadership, and his skills on and off the field.
