Bovada Drops Ohio State from 10-1 to 18-1 to Win National Championship

That didn't take long.

Within hours of news emerging that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller had re-injured his throwing shoulder, sportsbooks dropped Ohio State's odds to win both the Big Ten and national championship.

If the awkward throw injures the shoulder of Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller, then Ohio State’s odds to win the college football national championship would plunge from 10-1 to 18-1.


Another sportsbook quickly adjusted their lines, moving the Buckeyes to 20-1. Online sportsbook 5Dimes also dropped their odds to win the Big Ten behind both Wisconsin and Michigan State at 3-1.

Miller's Heisman Trophy odds also dipped to 13-1, well behind Jameis Winston at Florida State and Marus Mariota at Oregon.

The Buckeyes open against Navy and that line has been taken off the board at some shops and the line had dipped at 5Dimes to -16.5 for OSU from an open of -19.5. Watch for Ohio State odds to change pending his medical updates today.

While Ohio State without Braxton Miller is still a very good football team, Urban Meyer will probably need his senior quarterback to make a run at a title.
