Big Ten Preseason Favorites Have Only Won Twice: 2010-2011 Odds

Big Ten Preseason Favorites

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com cited an interesting fact related to Big Ten preseason favorites and how they ultimately perform.  Bettors take note as you mull over the 2010-2011 Big Ten College Football odds!

The preseason favorite has earned at least a share of the Big Ten title in seven of the past 15 years, including each of the past three. Even though Ohio State will vacate all its wins and its league title from 2010, I think the preseason pick still should count because of what transpired between the lines. Still, that's not a great prediction percentage (.467). The preseason favorite won the outright title just twice (Ohio State in 2006 and 2009). The percentage likely will worsen in the coming years as the Big Ten will have outright champions beginning this season.

With that said, it might not be wise to bet Nebraska or Wisconsin (the two near even favorites to win the Big Ten Conference).
