According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Buckeyes’ odds have gone from 10/1 to 40/1 following Miller’s injury on Monday during practice. Florida State remains the favorite to win this season’s title at 4/1, while Alabama is 5/1 and Oregon is 7/1. Auburn is also 9/1 and Oklahoma is now 10/1.

Beat writer Tim May reported yesterday that Miller re-injured his right shoulder during practice and noted that the quarterback’s season was in doubt. Miller was returning from shoulder surgery that took place in February and wasn’t hit when the injury occurred. His practice time had been limited over the last few weeks and his recovery was reportedly coming along slowly.

The injury came as somewhat of a surprise because Miller said he was near 100 percent and was ready to start the season. He struggled with his decision on whether or not to enter the 2014 NFL Draft but he wanted to stay ostensibly because he wanted a crack at winning a championship. The Buckeyes will now turn to freshman J.T. Barrett at quarterback.

The Spartans have the best odds among the teams in the Big Ten to win the 2015 college football championship. Michigan State is 22/1 while Wisconsin is 25/1 and Michigan is 50/1. Nebraska is also 66/1 to win this season’s FBS championship.
