Big Ten football is back, and to nobody's surprise, Ohio State is expected to take the conference crown again.
Ahead of the newly-resurrected season, the Buckeyes open as a -260 favorite to win the 2020 Big Ten Championship, according to Bovada. For you non-gamblers, that means it would take a $260 wager to win $100.
No other Big Ten team comes even close to those odds, with Michigan coming in at +550 odds, meaning a $100 wager would win $550. Penn State and Wisconsin are even further behind at +900 and Nebraska checks in at +2000.

Ohio State also opens with the second-best odds to win this year's national championship, behind only Clemson. The Buckeyes open with +260 odds compared to Clemson's +210 odds.
The Buckeyes are set to open their fall season in just over a month with a home showdown with Nebraska.
