Duke Is Vegas' Favorite To Win The NCAA Tournament

The Blue Devils are the favorite to win it all.

The Las Vegas favorite to win this year's NCAA Tournament is not one of the four No. 1 seeds - Villanova, Gonzaga, Kansas or North Carolina.

It's a No. 2 seed - the Duke Blue Devils.

Coach K's squad, the No. 2 seed in the East Region (where Villanova's the No. 1) is a 5 to 1 favorite to win it all, per Las Vegas SuperBook.

It's not ridiculously surprising, but it's still a little weird to see the NCAA Tournament favorite be a non-No. 1 seed.

The NCAA Tournament's first round begins on Thursday.
