Bovada has updated their 2016 college football odds, and the Illinois Fighting Illini have been given 50/1 odds to win the Big Ten Championship. The site also pegs the Orange and Blue at 25/1 for winning the West Division. So, clearly not the most optimistic outlook on the season, but it's still better than Purdue and Rutgers.

Shockingly, Ohio State (7/4) and Michigan (7/4) are the early favorites to win to this year's championship. Michigan State (7/1) isn't far behind in third, though. Here's a look at the entire set of divisional and title odds:
