The Tar Heels have surpassed in-state rival and conference foe Duke as the favorites.
According to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, the Tar Heels are now 5-to-1 favorites, while the Kansas Jayhawks sit at 6-to-1. Defending national champion Villanova, the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed, has 8-to-1 odds.
