Big Ten Betting Odds 2024

Futures, Props And More

big ten odds

The Big Ten undergoes perhaps the biggest change in 2024 among the remaining power conferences. They add four west coast schools in Oregon, UCLA, USC, and Washington. The Ducks are the second favorites among Big Ten odds behind just Ohio State, making for an interesting shift in conference dynamic. But this league is the Buckeyes to lose after they went all-in, bringing Chip Kelly as offensive coordinator and many of the biggest names in the transfer portal. Despite massive turnover, defending-national champion Michigan certainly has objections about their rival’s status. The Big Ten will be one of the most interesting leagues to watch in years.

Below, we’ll go over the favorites, contenders, players to watch, and more for the Big Ten Conference.

Players To Note

Jeremiah Smith, WR, Ohio State: 247Sports’ highest-rated receiver of all time joins the Buckeyes as the next in a ridiculous line of receiving talent. Despite just sending Marvin Harrison Jr. to the NFL as a top-five pick, Smith’s teammates and coaches suggest he may exceed Harrison Jr. At 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Smith appears to possess all the skills of a top NFL wide receiver as a true freshman.

Kenneth Grant, DT, Michigan: Though Jenkins didn’t make the cover of EA Sports College Football 25, he might just be Michigan’s biggest asset. The Wolverines are known for having nasty defensive fronts and this year is no exception. He and Mason Graham – along with the threat of Josiah Stewart and Derrick Moore on the edges – make up one of the nation’s best defensive lines this season.

Jordan James, RB, Oregon: Bucky Irving drew most of the attention in 2023, but James showed glimpses of stardom in limited work. On 107 carries, he picked up a ridiculous 7.1 yards per attempt (t-4th in the nation) and scored 11 touchdowns. Perhaps the most eye-opening part about that statline: he did so while never exceeding 20 snaps a game. Though the Big Ten steps up in class defensively, James might be a household name by October.

How to bet on conference winners

Our top advice we always give at TheLines is to shop around before diving headlong into the first bet you see. Different outlets offer different odds and a minute or two of your time could result in some more money coming your way. Just because FanDuel Sportsbook offers USC to win the Big Ten (+700) doesn’t mean DraftKings Sportsbook won’t offer the same prop at +900. We’ll compile all the odds for you so you always get the best price.

Sites like FanDuel, DraftKings, and Caesars offer ample ways to bet on college football conference winners – odds that will change drastically as the season progresses.

When betting on conference futures, be sure to keep in mind factors that are specific to college football. Important areas of consideration include:

  • Schedule (out of conference, home/away splits)
  • Coaching prowess
  • Returning production
  • Star quarterbacks
  • Experience and cohesiveness on the offensive line

Be sure to know which factors matter more than others. For example, a heavy focus is put on recruiting classes. However, the most recent class likely won’t take the field for another year or two and won’t factor into team success this season. Also, is this a coaching staff that develops its talent well? Staffs like Wisconsin are extremely good at developing talent whereas teams like Texas consistently underperform despite signing top recruiting classes.
