The Big 10 Conference has had somewhat of a college football comeback.
Two of the most storied coaches in football history, Urban Meyer at Ohio State and Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, are part of the comeback.
It’s been years since sports betting interest in the Big Ten has been as high as it is now.
Online bookie agents must be aware of the following teams from the once again powerful football conference.
Ohio State Buckeyes -120
Opening odds on Ohio State were at +125. The -120 odds are what agents will find in most sportsbooks. That’s how much love the Buckeyes have received from casual players.
It makes sense to set max betting limits on the Buckeyes. Also, consider a schedule limit override to encourage wagers on other teams.
Wisconsin Badgers +375
Michigan Wolverines +550
Penn State Nittany Lions +550
All 3 above Big Ten squads could see action from pro players. The odds on Wisconsin to win the Big Ten appear underlaid.
Then, one realizes that if Wisconsin wins the Big Ten West, they’ll have a shot at the Big Ten Championship. The Big Ten West isn’t close to being as formidable as the Big Ten East.
Penn State won the Big Ten Championship last season. Harbaugh coaches the Michigan Wolverines.
Pay per head agents should expect major bets from pro players on both the Nittany Lions and the Wolverines.
Nebraska Cornhuskers +1600
Northwestern Wildcats +1600
Both Nebraska and Northwestern play in the Big Ten East. Nebraska, especially, could be a tough team for Wisconsin to handle.
Mike Riley is an excellent football coach. His team is going to be competitive against any opponent it faces.
Not only that, but Nebraska’s fan base is as rabid as Michigan and Ohio State’s. Nebraska might be the alumni bet this season.
Meaning that anyone who remembers the Nebraska teams in the late 1970’s and early to mid-1980’s is going to jump on the Cornhuskers at 16 to 1.
Northwestern returns a lot of experienced players. The Wildcats should garner some attention from pro players.
Casual players? Some action might go to per head agents from casual players, but don’t expect a lot.
College football is almost here, and online bookies should be able to make a decent profit. But, with the potential hyped season, balancing wagers is important.
All teams who online bookie agents think will see substantial action, from casual or pros, should have max betting limits set.
