2007-2008 Big 10 College Basketball Betting

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

College basketball betting on the Big 10 in 2007-2008 will definitely be different since Ohio State and Wisconsin lost star players.

The best team for basketball betting fans in 2007-2008 to consider in the Big 10 might be Michigan State.

College basketball betting odds on Michigan State should be low most of the time this season.  The Spartans return Drew Neitzel, who may be the best player in the conference. They also have a solid staring lineup and an excellent head coach in Tom Izzo.  Michigan State is definitely a Final Four contender in terms of college basketball betting this year.

Ohio State will not get nearly as much attention from college basketball betting fans since they lost Greg Oden and Mike Conley, Jr. but they are not without talent.Jamar Butler will lead the way but David Lighty has a lot of potential. The biggest factor in how well the Buckeyes do this year for college basketball betting fans will be their new freshman superstar center, Kosta Koufos. If he plays up to advance billing then Ohio State is going to surprise many college basketball betting fans this season.  Another team that will have to replace a superstar is Wisconsin.  They lose Alando Tucker and will have to rely upon Brian Butch and Marcus Landry and will not be as good for fans of college basketball betting.

Michigan State Purdue

College basketball betting fans see that Indiana is looking for a freshman to make an impact this season.  College basketball betting fans are looking at guard Eric Gordon He will team up with DJ White to give the Hoosiers an excellent one-two punch and make the Hoosiers tough to handle in terms of college basketball betting lines.

College basketball betting fans know that Penn State may not be the best team in the big ten but they do have 6-5 senior guard Geary Claxton. Minnesota hasn’t done much recently for basketball betting fans but they have former Kentucky head coach Tubby Smith and some good young players like Lawrence McKenzie (14.9 ppg), Dan Coleman (14.2 ppg, 6 rpg), and Spencer Tollackson (12 ppg, 5.3 rpg).  Minnesota will be a team to watch for college basketball betting fans this season.

Illinois is not going to be as good for fans of basketball betting. Shaun Pruitt is solid but the Illini need more help. The Big Ten will be interesting to watch this season with Michigan State and Indiana favored according to basketball betting experts.
