The Big Ten is an interesting conference for a number of reasons. One is the collection of storied football programs in the league — Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan have rich histories in terms of competing in football, and so do Wisconsin and Nebraska. Michigan State has come on in recent years to join the other top teams in the conference. However, the two divisions of the league mean that most of the top teams have to face each other for the chance to make the conference championship, while the other division often sends a lesser team to the title game. This happened last year, when Ohio State won the Big Ten East and Northwestern won the Big Ten West. Nebraska expects to make noise in the Big Ten West this year, but if they were in the East, their likelihood of making the title game would be slim indeed. For college football betting enthusiasts and casual fans alike, we have put together a list of five bold predictions for Big Ten play in 2019.
