Urban Meyer's future at Ohio State remains in limbo. The Buckeyes placed Meyer on paid administrative leave last week following a report from Brett McMurphy.

The report alleged Meyer knew about domestic violence accusations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith. Meyer released a statement last week revealing he knew of an alleged incident and reported it accordingly.

Initial reactions to the report against Meyer, a three-time national champion, suggested he would be fired. However, over the past week, those odds have been shifting in Meyer's favor.

In fact, he's now a heavy favorite to coach Ohio State this year - although he may face a short suspension. Here are the odds per BetDSI.

Will Urban Meyer be fired or resign as head coach in 2018?

  • YES: +600
  • NO: -1500

Urban Meyer is suspended for at least one game during 2018-19 regular season:

  • YES: -2000
  • NO: +750

Total games Urban Meyer is suspended during 2018-19 regular season?

  • OVER 4.5: -150
  • UNDER 4.5: +120

Urban Meyer appears to believe he will be back with the team for the upcoming season. The Ohio State head coach said in his statement that he looks forward to returning to the team.

"Please know that the truth is the ultimate power and I am confident that I took appropriate action. As I stated above, I deeply regret if I have failed in my words. As the son of an amazing woman and the husband to another and, as the father of two incredible young women, those who know me best know the admiration and respect I have for all women. Our core values are just that-values that do not ever waver.

I ask that you continue to support the incredible coaches and student-athletes in our program, and I look forward to rejoining them soon," Meyer said.

Ohio State set a two week timeline for its investigation.
