College Basketball Betting Odds: Duke Favored To Win Title

Basketball has the fewest number of players in the game at any one time of any team sport. Because of that, it allows one player to make a huge difference in the outcome of a game, and in a grander sense, the outcome of a season.
Nowhere is that more reflected than in the most recent NCAA Basketball National Championship odds released by Westgate.
Following the commitment of Marvin Bagley II, the Duke Blue Devils have vaulted themselves over the competition. After sitting neck-and-neck with Kentucky, obtaining the commitment from the top player in the country was everything the Blue Devils needed to take a commanding lead in the odds.
Improving on their already high 7/1 odds, Duke now stands alone as the favorite to cut down the nets at 3/1.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski and his Duke Blue Devils return a number of talented, experienced players, including lightning rod Grayson Allen. If he wants to win his sixth career NCAA Championship, it appears all he’ll have to do this season is stay the course, and avoid getting tripped up in 2017-18.
Take a look at the rest of the odds. It’s the usual suspects at the top, with the defending champion North Carolina Tar Heels slipping all the way to 30/1.
