Big 10 Football
Team by Team
Below are Our team by team Big 10 football betting previews for the 2014 college football season. The Big 10 welcomes a couple of new teams this year in Maryland and Rutgers as Michigan State looks to repeat as Conference champs.
Interestingly, the teams that are traditionally in the bottom of the pack in the Big 10 return the most starters this year. Teams like Purdue and Indiana. Michigan returns a healthy 17 starters while Wisconsin returns just 11.
Michigan State and Ohio State will be in the same division this year. Ohio State is favored to win the Conference at even money while Michigan State is +370. The oddsmakers might have it right here as it’s hard to bet against Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes this year. Our official pick to win the Big 10 – Ohio State +100.
Penn State College Football Betting Preview – It seems like Penn State has to fight a new hardship every year, which maybe should be expected after what happened a few years ago. No matter, head coach James Franklin (from Vanderbilt) will lead the Nittany Lions’ third coaching staff in Four years.
2014 Iowa Hawkeyes Betting Preview – It seems like Iowa goes into every season with hopes of competing for the Big Ten title, yet every year something goes wrong and they are out of the running toward the end of the season.
2014 Nebraska Cornhuskers College Football Betting Preview – Nebraska comes into 2014 having six straight Four-loss seasons, which is an incredible feat to think about and it wouldn’t be surprising if they finished with that mark again. While their skill positions are filled, the Cornhuskers take a hit on the offensive line and secondary.
2014 Minnesota Gophers Football Betting Preview with Odds – Minnesota will try and make the next step this season under Jerry Kill after improving for the second straight year, finishing 8-5 in 2013. That’s going to be a hard feat and not just because of their Schedule
2014 Northwestern College Football Betting Preview – After 10 wins in 2012, Northwestern fell apart in 2013 losing its first seven Big Ten Games. The Wildcats were incredibly unlucky losing a couple overtime Games and also at Nebraska off a Hail Mary.
2014 Indiana Hoosiers College Football Preview – If you like points then you like Indiana. The Hoosiers had one of the best offenses in the Conference last season, but also one of the worst defenses.
2014 Maryland College Football Picks and Preview – Maryland, welcome to the Big Ten. How about a stretch of six straight Games against the best teams in the Conference for your first season?
2014 Illinois College Football Preview with Schedule – Reaching a bowl Game is the next task at hand for Illinois and head coach Tim Beckman. They finally broke their winless streak in the Big Ten last year, but still have only one win in their last 22 Conference Games.
2014 Rutgers Football Betting Preview – Rutgers is coming off a 6-7 season and 3-5 in AAC play. Now in the Big Ten’s East division, things are about to get a lot harder. The good news is the SCarlet Knights return 15 starters, nine on the offensive end.
2014 Purdue College Football Betting Preview – After finishing winless in the Big Ten last year and with only one overall win, Purdue is projected to finish in the basement yet again. The Boilermakers return 15 starters, but that doesn’t help from last year’s team that was one of the worst on both sides of the ball.
2014 Ohio State Buckeyes Football Preview with Betting Odds and Schedule – It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ohio State is the favorite to win the Big Ten this year. While the Buckeyes lose plenty of talent, they have Urban Meyer’s recruiting class and plenty of big-name returnees.
2014 Michigan State College Football Betting Preview with Schedule – OUt of nowhere it seems like, Michigan State has national championship aspirations going into this season. After an incredible 13-1 Rose Bowl-winning campaign, and being underrated for almost the entire season, the Spartans are getting some respect and many have them near this preseason’s Top 10.
2014 Michigan Wolverines College Football Preview with Odds and Schedule – Michigan started last season with high hopes and a 5-0 record. However, the latter half of the year was almost the opposite as they lost six of eight Games. If the Wolverines finish with a similar 7-6 record this time around, many will start doubting Brady Hoke at the helm.
2014 Wisconsin Badgers College Football Predictions, Odds and Schedule – Wisconsin was a couple plays away from making a memorable first season for Gary Andersen, but they ended up finishing with nine wins despite poor quarterback play.
