Ohio State fourth in Big Ten men’s basketball odds

The Spartans come into the season as 2/1 favorites in the B1G.

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, today is a football Saturday, but it’s never too early to talk about Ohio State men’s basketball. This week, BetOnline released odds for each team in the Power Five conferences to win their respective regular season crowns.

The Michigan State Spartans have the best odds of any Big Ten or P5 team to win their conference, coming in at 2/1. Duke is next nationally at 5/2 to win the ACC, with Kansas, Oregon, and Kentucky all at 11/4 to win their respective leagues.

In the B1G, Juwan Howard’s Michigan Wolverines have the next best odds, followed by Maryland, and then Chris Holtmann’s Ohio State Buckeyes are in fourth with odds of 8/1.

Ohio State comes into the season with a somewhat rebuilt lineup following back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances. In addition to returning starters/contributors senior Andre Wesson, juniors Kaleb Wesson, Musa Jallow, and Kyle Young, and sophomores Luther Muhammad, Duane Washington Jr., and Justin Ahrens, Holtman and company will be welcoming in redshirt-junior CJ Walker who sat out last season after transferring from Florida State.

The guard has had a year to work himself into the program, so he is a veteran at OSU compared to the B1G’s best 2019 recruiting class, which features three four-star players and a seven-foot, three-star developmental player.

Point guard D.J. Carton and forwards E.J. Liddell and Alonzo Gaffney are all top-50 national players and will bring a ton of excitement to the Buckeyes roster this season. They are joined in the class by Senegal native Ibrahima Diallo, who is listed as 7-feet, 200 pounds.
