I think that you might have to do some of the research aspect on your own, but I think a rough outline can be gained here.  One natural similarity between both of them is that they both have to endure a challenging journey to "get back home."  Bilbo has to leave the Shire in order to find the ring and struggles to a certain extent for his life to be the same afterwards.  Odysseus seeks to return home after being stranded on the seas and fighting the Trojan war.  There is much which presents itself that brings this into doubt, as well.  Both have to deal with forces of divinity or supernatural power that are lined up against them.  Odysseus' angering of Poseidon pretty much lines him up against the Olympian, while Sauron seeks to thwart anyone who possesses the ring, of which Bilbo is certainly a part.  Both of their voyages and experiences ultimately change them into a furture that is unknown.  We are left to wonder what Bilbo will be like once he has relinquished the ring, but one thing we know is that he will not entirely be able to to go back to life before it.  Odysseus is much the same way, as we are uncertain of what his experiences will bring, but perhaps like Tennyson in his own conception of the mythic hero, we know that he will not go back to being the same person home once knew.
