Posted by CAPPERSMALL STAFF on 08.15.2008

The Big Ten went 3-5 in 2007 Bowl games. The only winners were Michigan, Penn State and Purdue while Indiana, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Illinois and Ohio State lost. Both Illinois and Ohio State were blown out by USC and LSU in BCS games.

In 2008, the Ohio State Buckeyes are the big favorites to win the Big Ten at -250 at Betonline.com. Wisconsin +300, Penn State +500, Michigan +500 and Illinois +650 are next.

Last year Michigan State had the best ATS record at 8-5. Wisconsin was 9-4 SU but had the worst ATS record of anyone in the Big Ten by going 4-8 including 0-6 against the spread on the road. Here is the ATS records in 2007 of all the Big Ten teams. The first column is SU victories with everything else against the point-spread.
