Early entries to the 2018 NBA Draft have been declared and with the exception of a few transfers, most rosters are set for the 2018-19 Basketball season. With that, Vegas has released an updated set of odds to win next year’s Men’s NCAA Championship.
Villanova definitely took a lump with the announcements by underclassmen Donte DiVincenzo and Omari Spellman to jump to the next level, but the oddsmakers in Nevada still have the Wildcats in solid position to claim the school’s fourth National Championship... and third in four seasons.
Duke (11/2) and Kansas (8/1) lead the pack as favorites in 2019, but ‘Nova has the third best odds at 9/1 . Kentucky and Gonzaga are both posted right behind at 10/1.
Throughout the rest of the BIG EAST, Seton Hall, St. John’s, and Xavier are at 90/1.
