Sports gambling handicappers can continue to expect Penn State to be among the top sportsbetting contenders in the Big Ten as they had the top ranked class. Penn State finished 2nd in the Big Ten sports gambling race for 2009 and had the 9th ranked sportsbetting recruit class in the nation for National Signing Day.
The Nittany Lions will again be one of the best online sports gambling commodities on the board for defense and also known as one of the top sports gambling programs for linebackers.
The Michigan Wolverines look to be a resurgent sports gambling commodity for 2010 as head coach Rich Rodriguez will have to produce a bowl season after two losing years on the job. Michigan finished with the 2nd ranked recruit class in the Big Ten and had a national sports gambling rank of 20th.
Ohio State will again be part of the conversation as far as top contending Big Ten teams for the foreseeable sports gambling future. The Buckeyes are the defending Big Ten and Rose Bowl champions and produced the third ranked class in the league while ranking 25th in the nation.
Michigan State was able to offer their fans some good sports gambling news with the fourth ranked recruit class in the Big Ten. It was a welcome break from all of their recent sports gambling news about off the field incidents with players.

The Hawkeyes cashed in with a solid class that ranked fifth in the Big Ten. They landed four-four star prospects. Indiana ranked dead last in the Big Ten for National Singing Day with Illinois and Minnesota near the basement as well.
Illinois’ ranking was of particular note due to head coach Ron Zook being known for his outstanding recruiting skills. Zook faces a likely make or break season for 2010 and this class doesn’t help his cause.
