Looking ahead: Spreads set for handful of B1G Rivalry Week games
We’re still months away from the start of the college football season but Vegas is already establishing some early lines for some of the B1G’s most important games in 2022.
FanDuel has recently released spreads for four B1G games scheduled for the final weekend of the regular season (Rivalry Week). And there are some interesting lines.
Despite Michigan defeating Ohio State 42-27 in 2021, the Wolverines are double-digit underdogs against the Buckeyes this season. It’s the same situation for Minnesota, which is also a double-digit dog to Wisconsin even though the Gophers took down the Badgers last season.
Spreads have also been established for Nebraska-Iowa and Michigan State-Penn State. Here’s a look at where the current spreads stand, per FanDuel:
- Michigan vs. Ohio State (-14)
- Nebraska vs. Iowa (-3.5)
- Michigan State vs. Penn State (-6.5)
- Minnesota vs. Wisconsin (-10.5)
These lines will undoubtedly fluctuate throughout the offseason and into the start of the 2022 campaign. For now, though, this is where Vegas has the lines set.
