College basketball national championship odds have been updated by sportsbook Bovada.
Despite a number of injuries and distractions, including everything surrounding guard Grayson Allen and the health of head coach Mike Krzyzewski (who underwent successful back surgery today), Duke remains the favorite to capture the title once again.
However, the Blue Devils are not alone atop the odds list. UCLA, which opened at 50/1 to win the championship, has jumped to tie Duke at 5/1.
SNY’s Adam Zagoria posted the top of the odds list, via Bovada.

Here is the full list of teams available to wager on at Bovada’s website.
For reference, at +500, a bettor would need to place $100 on Duke or UCLA to win the championship to collect $500.
There is still a lot of college basketball to be played, and there is definitely no team that looks to be running away with things. Throw in the always-unpredictable NCAA Tournament, and betting on any of these teams looks like a seirous risk right now.
