As most schools have a handful of conference games under their belt Bovada has updated their odds to win the 2017 National Championship and the Duke Blue Devils and UCLA Bruins are the 5/1 co-favorite.

Villanova, the reigning Champions, has had their chances drop a bit in Vegas’s eye from 10/1 in October to its current 11/1 likelihood.

Perennial blue chip program Kentucky is the only other program to have better odds than the Main Line Wildcats and the leaders as Kansas and North Carolina join ‘Nova at 11/1.

Elsewhere around the BIG EAST, Xavier and Creighton are at 33/1, Butler is at 50/1, Georgetown is 150/1, Seton Hall is 200/1, and Marquette is 300/1.
