2017 NCAA Championship Odds
Following Villanova’s big win in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, who has emerged as the favorite to win the 2017 NCAA Tournament?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Duke is favored to win the title, as the Blue Devils have 9/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Kentucky (7/1), Villanova (10/1) and Kansas (11/1).
Duke reached the Sweet 16 this past year, but dealt with injuries all season that hurt them hit their potential. Despite Brandon Ingram leaving for the draft, the team will return Grayson Allen and a solid recruiting class.
Kentucky lost in the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, but the Wildcats return a lot of talent for next season and re-load with another strong recruiting class.
Villanova won the national title this past season. The Wildcats had just three seniors, so there is potential for a strong returning roster, led by Josh Hart, should he choose to return.
Kansas lost in the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament to Villanova. The Jayhawks lose quite a bit from the squad, but add a solid recruiting class, led by Josh Jackson, who committed on Monday.
