New, comments

In their second Big Ten season, Vegas doesn't think the Terps have a good chance of winning the Big Ten title.

5Dimes released its 2015 Big Ten football title odds and unsurprisingly it didn't give Maryland a very good shot of winning the conference championship in the Terps' second season as members of the conference. Maryland checked in at +3000, which was ahead of Northwestern, Illinois, Indiana and Purdue, but behind Rutgers (+2500).

Maryland also trails Iowa (+2200), Penn State (+1700) and Michigan (+1300), all schools Maryland defeated last season, their first as a member of the Big Ten.

Unsurprisingly, Ohio State is the overwhelming favorite to win the Big Ten at -300, as the defending National Champions return many of their starters from last year and brought in one of the top-rated recruiting classes in 2015.

Michigan State (+300) and Wisconsin (+800), two teams that also did exceptionally well last year, have the second and third best odds to win the Big Ten title.

Here's the full list:

Ohio State -150
Michigan State +300
Wisconsin +800
Nebraska +1100
Minnesota +1200
Michigan +1300
Penn State +1700
Iowa +2200
Rutgers +2500
Maryland +3000
Northwestern +5500
Illinois +6000
Indiana +6000
Purdue +8000
