The loss of Braxton Miller for the season has hurt the Buckeyes' 2014 national title odds

After it was announced Tuesday that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 season after re-injuring his shoulder, the Buckeyes national championship odds took a big hit with two Las Vegas sportsbooks. 

Ohio State's odds of winning the title dropped from 10/1 to 40/1 with Bovada, and dropped from 12/1 to 50/1 with Las Vegas Hilton Sportsbook

Miller torn the labrum in his right shoulder during a non-contact drill at a practice Monday night. Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is now the favorite to start at quarterback for the Buckeyes this season.

Prior to Miller's injury, Ohio State was ranked No. 4 in SI.com's preseason Top 25 rankings
