B1G Action: Betting lines for Week 9
Week 8 did not disappoint with plenty of fireworks around the B1G!
The week was headlined by the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry and Ohio State’s trip to Purdue. In a formula that continues to pay off, the Wolverines used a tough defense to stifle the Spartans in a 21-7 win. For the Boilermakers, they pulled off the unthinkable with a massive 49-20 upset of the No. 2 ranked Buckeyes.
Some of the other action saw Nebraska capture its first win with Scott Frost and Iowa quietly dominate Maryland 23-0. Things are shaping up for a big finish around the conference this season as both division races remain tight.
With that in mind, here are the B1G betting lines heading into Week 9, courtesy of Vegas Insider:
Maryland: -15 over Illinois
Wisconsin: -6 over Northwestern
Penn State: opened at -7.5, now -6 over Iowa
Purdue: opened +1.5 underdog, now -1 over Michigan State
Indiana–Minnesota: Not listed, likely waiting on injury update to Minnesota QB Zack Annexstad
Nebraska-Bethune-Cookman: Not listed.
