Big Ten Tournament 2014 odds: Wisconsin at 3/1 to win tourney, via Bovada

New, comments

Wisconsin trails only Michigan State in Bovada's early odds for the Big Ten Tournament.

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

For those with a bettor's mind, the 2014 Big Ten Tournament presents some enticing opportunities. Bovada has released its latest odds for the conference tournament, pegging Michigan State as the favorites just above Wisconsin and Michigan.

The Spartans finished third in the conference due in large part to injuries, but Bovada pegs them at 5/2 to win this weekend's tournament. The Badgers and Wolverines are then both listed at 3/1.

TEAM ODDS
Michigan State 5/2
Wisconsin 3/1
Michigan 3/1
Iowa 9/2
Ohio State 5/1
Nebraska 16/1
Indiana 20/1
Minnesota 33/1
Illinois 50/1
Purdue 200/1
Penn State 200/1
Northwestern 500/1

While the baselines are certainly different, B5Q's Bart Torvik ran simulations on Monday to determine win probabilities based on KenPom rankings. His top three teams were unsurprisingly the same, albeit in a different area. Bovada also appears less bullish on Nebraska, somewhat surprising due to the Huskers' strong regular-season finish.
