Bet college football with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
We started off our Win Total Wednesday collegiate campaign earlier today by analyzing the SEC. It’s now the Big Ten’s turn, as the conference’s season commences in 10 days with a conference battle between Nebraska and Illinois.
Of the 14 teams in the Big Ten, William Hill Nevada has released regular season win totals for 12 of them (Rutgers and Illinois are not available).
Ohio State went 5-0 last year in the regular season, and the Buckeyes’ win total sits at 11. Only Alabama and Clemson are higher at 11.5, while Oklahoma joins Ohio State at 11. The over opened as the slight favorite for Buckeyes 11 at -120, but now it’s at -110 for each.
William Hill bettors are split on Ohio State’s win total, as the over has the advantage with 63% of the total number of tickets while the under has the edge with 60% of the total dollars wagered.
Ohio State is one of four Big Ten win totals where the majority of the tickets and dollars are on opposite sides. The others are Michigan 7.5 (over 55% tickets, under 56% dollars), Indiana 7.5 (under 54% tickets, over 64% dollars) and Purdue 5 (under 56% tickets, over 75% dollars).
For the most lopsided win total wagers, two Big Ten teams’ overs are capturing at least 90% of the total dollars wagered and another two unders are at that mark as well.
Wisconsin over 9.5 not only ranks first with 79% of the total number of tickets, but it has also commanded a Big Ten-leading 93% of the total dollars wagered. Minnesota over 7 is second in each with 75% of the total number of tickets and 90% of the total dollars wagered.
On the other end of the spectrum, Iowa under 8.5 has accumulated a whopping 98% of the total dollars wagered, along with 78% of the total number of tickets. Penn State under 9 is nearby behind in each category with 77% of the total number of tickets and 90% of the total dollars wagered.
Maryland’s under has caught the attention of many William Hill bettors as well, as it has snagged 75% of the total number of tickets and 82% of the total dollars wagered. Yet, Maryland is the only Big Ten win total to move from its original number, and it actually increased from 6 (over +105/under -125) to 6.5 (over +130/under -150).
