The latest college basketball polls were released on Monday afternoon, and because of Duke's loss to Gonzaga last week, there was a change at the top. The Bulldogs, ranked No. 3 last week, jumped both Kansas and the Blue Devils to take over the top spot.

While the polls may regard Gonzaga as the best team in the country, sports books don't think the Bulldogs have the best odds at winning at all. Duke, despite the loss, is still tops there.

The Blue Devils, according to OddsShark, are currently +200 to win it all, per Bovada.

Gonzaga and Kansas have the next-best odds. Those three teams are head and shoulders above the rest.

Kentucky, despite being ranked No. 10, has better odds than five of the teams in front of it in the standings.

While Duke looks like it has more potential than any other team in the country, +200 isn't a huge payoff. The NCAA Tournament produces a ton of upsets - and those aren't exactly numbers that lead to a high payout.

Duke will next get Indiana on Tuesday.
