It’s that time of year when the sportsbooks finally do their research and get ready for the hordes of people who want to bet tons of money on their favorite college football teams. Fan Duel released their initial over/unders for win totals for the 2019 season for all most of the FCS schools earlier this week. Here are the Big Ten current over/unders for 2019:

Big Ten West:

Minnesota Golden Gophers: 7 wins

It’s interesting because when the over/under totals initially came out on Tuesday, Minnesota was orignally at 6.5 wins. Looks like Gophers fans hit that number HARD to get it to jump up to seven already.

TDG Prediction: Over

Wisconsin Badgers: 8.5 wins

Wisconsin at 8.5 is an interesting number. They host Michigan and Michigan State and go to Ohio State in crossover games. They head to Lincoln and Minneapolis for their only other tough Big Ten road games. I could see 8 or 9 really easily...so yeah this is a good number.

TDG Prediction: Under

Iowa Hawkeyes: 8 wins

This number also has moved as initially it was 7.5 for Iowa. They go to Iowa State in the non-con, and then host Rutgers and Penn State and head to Michigan in crossovers. They head to Northwestern, Wisconsin and Nebraska as well.

TDG Prediction: Push

Nebraska Cornhuskers: 8.5 wins

A non-con trip to Colorado, crossover games at home vs Indiana and Ohio State and a trip to Maryland. They go Minnesota and Purdue, but the rest of the tough B1G west games are at home. Still, 9 wins seems just too damn high for this team.

TDG Prediction: Under

Purdue Boilermakers: 8 wins

Guess Vegas really liked 2018 Purdue. At Nevada and hosts Vandy and TCU in the non-con. Crossovers hosting Maryland and Indiana and a trip to Penn State. Nebraska and Minnesota at home, but road for NW, WI, IA,

TDG Prediction: Under

Northwestern Wildcats: 6.5 wins

At Stanford and hosting UNLV and UMass in the non-con. Hosts Michigan State and Ohio State and heads to Indiana in crossovers. At Wisconsin and Nebraska, but IA, MN, Purdue all at home.

TDG Prediction: Over

Illinois Fighting Illini: 3.5 wins

This also has moved up from initially being 3 earlier in the week. Akron, at UConn, Eastern Michigan in the non-con. The host Rutgers and Michigan and head to East Lansing in crossovers. It probably comes down to that Akron game.

TDG Prediction: Under

Big Ten East:

Ohio State Buckeyes: 10.5 wins

The highest of any Big Ten over/under. Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati, and Miami, Ohio in the non-con. Road games at Nebraska and Michigan. Home crossover vs Wisconsin. I think tyr somehow drop two in there.

TDG Prediction: Under

Michigan Wolverines: 9.5 wins

Middle Tennessee, Army and Notre Dame all at home in the non-con. At Wisconsin and Penn State, but home for Michigan State, Ohio State, and Iowa. Another well placed line as I can see 9 or 10 fairly easily.

TDG Prediction: Over

Penn State Nittany Lions: 8.5 wins

Idaho, Buffalo, Pittsburgh in the non-con—all at home. At Iowa, Michigan State, Ohio State and Minnesota. Michigan and Purdue at home.

TDG Prediction: Under

Michigan State Spartans: 7.5 wins

Tulsa, Western Michigan, Arizona State all at home in the non-con. At Northwestern, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

TDG Prediction: Over

Indiana Hoosiers: 6 wins

Eastern Illinois and UConn at home, and a neutral site game vs Ball State in the non-con. At Michigan State, Nebraska, Penn State and Purdue. Michigan, Ohio State and Northwestern at home.

TDG Prediction: Push

Maryland Terrapins: 4.5 wins

Howard and Syracuse at home, at Temple in the non-con. At Purdue, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Ohio State. Penn State, Michigan, and Nebraska at home.

TDG Prediction: Under

Rutgers Scarlet Knights: NO LINE
