Ohio State still has one game on the schedule – and it's a big one – before heading to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship, but one sports book already likes the Buckeyes in the championship game.

5Dimes installed Ohio State as 7-point favorites over undefeated and fifth-ranked Wisconsin Monday, spotting the Buckeyes one touchdown in the B1G Championship.

Ohio State has won their last five meetings with the Badgers, the last coming in 2016, when the Buckeyes escaped Madison with a 30–23 overtime victory.

The two teams have met once previously in the Big Ten Championship with the Buckeyes entering that 2014 game as 4-point underdogs and riding a third-string quarterback. Urban Meyer's Buckeyes covered that spread by 63 points.

The 2017 Big Ten Championship will be played at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 2, with kickoff set for 8:07 p.m.
