We are over three months from the start of the NCAA Tournament, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at the updated odds for the event.
While Gonzaga is the No. 1 team in the AP poll, the Bulldogs have the second-best odds right now, according to Bovada. Gonzaga has a 7-1 betting line to win the national title.
The best odds? Well, those still belong to Duke at 2-1, even though the Blue Devils’ only loss was to Gonzaga in Maui.
Kansas, Virginia, Michigan and Nevada round out the top five, with the Wolverines and Wolf Pack tied for the fifth-best odds.
Here’s a list of the notable schools:

There’s a long way to go this season, and these odds are going to shift, dramatically in some cases.
Right now, if you want to lay an enticing bet, you could do worse than 20-1 on UNC, 16-1 on Kentucky and 14-1 on Michigan, in our opinion.
