WRESTLING: BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS

What if Vegas put odds on B1G wrestling?

What a lot of people don't know is that you can bet on the NCAA wrestling tournament each year out in Vegas and some online sports books. Unfortunately, they don't have is odds on B1G wrestling or any other wrestling conference tournaments. Typically at each weight you can bet on what is called the money line. Vegas oddsmakers will put a money line on the top two or three wrestlers at each weight and then give the field increased odds.

For BHGP odds for the Big Ten Tournament,  we're treating each weight class like a horse race. There are clear favorites with a few dark horses for the suckers to put money on.  For example, a Hawkeye fan might put $100 on Cory Clark to win the 125 pound championship and that would pay out (hypothetically) $600!  That's a pretty solid bet that has an actual shot at winning. There is also that drunk guy at the race track though that puts $100 on Ben Cox from Wisconsin whose odds are 1000-1 to win the 165 pound weight class.

If this were real, where would your money be at each weight class?  Feel free to post your bets in the comments and we'll try to calculate who would come home from Vegas the big winner!

2. Tyler Graff, WIS 3-1
3. David Thorn, MINN 3-1
4. Cashe Quiroga, PUR 7-1

10. Dom Malone, NU 35-1
11. Joe Duca, IND 45-1
12. Garth Yenter, MSU 50-1

2. Logan Stieber, OSU 1-2
3. Chris Dardanes, MINN 5-1
4. Stephen Dutton, MICH 7-1

6. Steven Rodrigues, ILL 15-1
7. Danny Sabatello, PUR 25-1
8. Jessie Thielke, WIS 40-1

The play:

Logan Stieber at 1-2 odds and put a good chunk of money on it. Don't see him losing again.

149

2. Nick Dardanes, MINN 2-1
3. Jason Tsirtsis, NU 3-1
4. Brody Grothus, IOWA 5-1

6. Ian Paddock, OSU 8-1
7. James English, PSU 10-1
8. Brandon Nelsen, PUR 15-1

The play:

My money would be on Tsirtsis at 3-1 odds. Some have given up on him a bit at this weight class, but he's a real threat.

157

1. Isaac Jordan, WIS 2-1
2. James Green, NEB 1-1
3. Dylan Ness, MINN 5-1
4. Derek St. John, IOWA 5-1

12. Roger Wildmo, MSU 50-1

The play:

Dylan Ness and Derek St. John have some great odds here at 5-1. Your wager will probably be swayed by which team you're rooting for.

1. David Taylor, PSU 1-9
2. Nick Moore, IOWA 5-1
3. Pierce Harger, NU 15-1
4. Dan Yates, MICH 20-1

Bet your mortgage on David Taylor.

174

1. Robert Kokesh, NEB 2-1
2. Matt Brown, PSU 2-1
3. Mike Evans, IOWA 3-1
4. Logan Storley, MINN 3-1
5. Tony Dallago, ILL 8-1
6. Mark Martin, OSU 10-1
7. Scott Liegel, WIS 15-1
8. Collin Zeerip, MICH 30-1

The play:

Odds aren't the best, but I think Storley at 3-1 is an OK price.

184

1. Ed Ruth, PSU 1-5
2. Kevin Steinhaus, MINN 2-1
3. Ethen Lofthouse, IOWA 3-1
4. TJ Dudley, NEB 6-1
5. Domenic Abounader, MICH 8-1
6. Kenny Courts, OSU 15-1
7. Jackson Hein, WIS 25-1
8. John Rizqallah, MSU 50-1

The play:

Ruth should walk through the B1G field and score a lot of bonus points, even in the finals.

197

1. Morgan McIntosh, PSU 1-1
2. Nick Heflin, OSU 2-1
3. Scott Schiller, MINN 2-1
4. Braden Atwood, PUR 5-1
5. Nathan Burak, IOWA 8-1
6. Mario Gonzalez, ILL 10-1
7. Alex Polizzi, NU 15-1
8. Timmy McCall, WIS 25-1
9. Nick McDiarmid, MSU 30-1
10. Caleb Kolb, NEB 50-1
11. Chris Heald, MICH 100-1
12. Garret Goldman, IND 400-1

The play:

The safe play would probably be Schiller, but if you are feeling frisky and have had a few too many tequila shots, you might want to go with Mario Gonzalez at 10-1 odds.

2. Adam Chalfant, IND 2-1
