Last year was a funky season indeed in Columbus as Ohio State amassed an impressive 12-2 record, including a 24-7 rout of USC in the Cotton Bowl Classic. Unfortunately for Urban Meyer and company a 55-24 blowout at the hands of Iowa in early November kept the Buckeyes just one spot shy of making the playoffs. Still, the newly released Big Ten Championship odds like Ohio State's chances of repeating as conference kings in 2018.

While the Buckeyes are the team to beat this fall, both Wisconsin and Penn State are hot on their heels after posting records of 13-1 and 11-2 last year respectively.
Perhaps the most eye-opening odds out of the bunch belong to Michigan where the public seems to have cooled off on Coach Khaki. Despite all the hype since coming over from the NFL, the Wolverines have yet to finish higher than third in the East Division under Jim Harbaugh's watch, and this year's schedule starts out with a bang as the squad travels to Notre Dame on September 1. It also must travel to Ohio State this time to end the season.
The longest shot in the bunch belongs to Illinois who began the 2017 season with a pair of home wins before losing its final 10 contests, which included a defense that gave up 24 points or more in all of those losses.
