Football Odds – 2008 Big 10 Preview

Football odds players are looking at the same three teams that topped the conference last season in Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan

Football odds players should know that with 11 teams in the Big 10 there is not a round-robin schedule so certain teams will not meet. This season the beneficiary is Iowa who will not have to play Ohio State or Michigan. Football odds players will definitely be looking at those four teams with Michigan getting a lot of attention with running back Mike Hart, receiver Mario Manningham and quarterback Chad Henne. The problem for the Wolverines and for NCAA football odds fans is that head coach Lloyd Carr can’t win the big game. College Football odds fans know that Ohio State’s Jim Tressel can win the big game but the Buckeyes lost a lot in the off-season and may have to settle for 2nd or 3rd in the Big 10 this season.

Penn State could be the surprise team for college football betting players to watch this season. The defense is very good and Anthony Morelli continues to get better. The games against Michigan and Wisconsin are the big ones for football odds players to watch.

Football odds players know that the team that really controls the Big 10 race is Wisconsin. They could easily be 9-0 heading into Columbus where they will play Ohio State in a great game for college football betting players to watch. They then play Michigan the next week in another great football odds matchup. Ohio State is probably in for a year in which they are not in the title chase but with Tressel you never can be sure.

Michigan State and Illinois will still continue to struggle for football odds fans in 2008. Northwestern could be back in a bowl game for football odds fans as long as they do what they should against teams like Duke and Eastern Michigan. Football odds players see that Michigan State will probably miss out on a bowl game as they still look to rebuild. Football odds players think that Indiana continues to get better but the loss of their head coach will be too much to overcome.

Football odds fans should know that the best offensive players in the conference to watch this year are Hart, Manningham, Henne, and Wisconsin’s running back P.J. Hill. College football betting players should be aware that the defensive player of the year may be linebacker Dan Connor from Penn State. Football odds players know that the coach that had better win and win big is Lloyd Carr. College football betting players know that he had better win this year and above all he better beat Ohio State.
