Kentucky favored to win NCAA championship next season

The 2018-19 college basketball season just ended on Monday night, and it took less than 24 hours for people to already look ahead to next season. Sportsbooks already are setting odds for next year’s title winner, and one has Kentucky favored to win it all.

SportsBetting.ag shared odds for the 2019-2020 champion, which has Kentucky favored at 5:1 odds. Duke is next, followed by Virginia and Michigan State. After that, most teams become longer shots at at least 12:1 odds.

Here’s the list:

Kentucky +500 (5/1)
Duke +600 (6/1)
Virginia +650 (13/2)
Michigan State +800 (8/1)
Michigan +1200 (12/1)
North Carolina +1200 (12/1)
Gonzaga +1400 (14/1)
Villanova +1600 (16/1)
Kansas +2000 (20/1)
Oregon +2200 (22/1)
Louisville +2500 (25/1)
Arizona +2500 (25/1)
Mississippi State +3300 (33/1)
Auburn +3300 (33/1)
Tennessee +3300 (33/1)
Texas Tech +3300 (33/1)
Texas +3300 (33/1)
Florida State +6600 (66/1)
Wisconsin +6600 (66/1)
UCLA +10000 (100/1)
USC +10000 (100/1)

Kansas at 20:1 doesn’t look like a bad play, but that’s dependent on whether or not Udoka Azubuike returns for his senior season. If he doesn’t, those odds aren’t so attractive. Kentucky is always a good bet to do well, especially since John Calipari seems like he will be there for life.
