A look at how Vegas sees the Wildcats.

Depending on who you ask, Northwestern might have a decent-to-good football season this year. Bovada has come out with its Big Ten win totals and odds in recent weeks, and Northwestern is right in the middle of the pack, coming in at 40/1 to win the Big Ten and 18/1 to win the division. Here are the rest of Bovada's Big Ten odds:

Odds to win the Big Ten Championship

Ohio State 10/11
Michigan State 15/4
Wisconsin 9/2
Nebraska 11/2
Michigan 9/1
Iowa 14/1
Northwestern 40/1
Minnesota 66/1
Indiana 100/1
Maryland 100/1
Illinois 200/1
Rutgers 200/1
Purdue 300/1
Penn State Not listed

Odds to win the Big Ten West

Wisconsin 6/5
Nebraska 3/2
Iowa 5/1
Minnesota 12/1
Northwestern 18/1
Illinois 33/1
Purdue 100/1

Bovada also released its win total projections last week, and NU was given an over/under of 7.5 wins this year. Like Bovada, the Big Ten media sees NU as a middle-of-the-pack team, placing the Wildcats fourth in the Big Ten West.

Others are more bullish on NU.
