Updated 2020 College Basketball Championship Odds – August 20th Edition
Michigan State might have come up one game short of reaching the 2019 national championship, but the Spartans are prohibitive 6/1 favorites thanks to the returns of future NBA performers like Cassius Winston, Xavier Tillman and Joshua Langford among others.
Kentucky is penciled in as the No. 2 favorite at 7/1 on the board because John Calipari’s perennially-powerful program keeps getting a handful of elite high school stars. This time, it’s five-star freshmen recruits, Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney.
Kansas is set as the No. 3 favorite to win it all, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a bit of a stretch for Bill Self’s squad this coming season, even if the Jayhawks do have a pair of really gifted players in sophomore Devon Dotson and senior big man Udoka Azubuike.
The Duke Blue Devils might have lost a trio of stars to the first round of the NBA Draft, including Zion Williamson, but they’ve still got a talented floor leader in Tre Jones and some more, five-star recruits in freshmen Vernon Carey and Matthew Hurt.
Memphis is hoping to get back on the national basketball map in a big way in their first season under the near, legendary Penny Hardaway and I believe the Tigers could surprise in a big way with the potential No. 1 pick in next year’s NBA Draft (James Wiseman) and a pair of other super talented freshmen Precious Achiuwa and Boogie Ellis.
North Carolina lost a bunch of their main players from last season’s title-hopeful squad in Coby White, Nassir Little and Luke Maye. The tar Heels have some nice incoming talent, but expected starting point guard Cole Anthony is expected be a one-and-done performer, so there will be change in Chapel Hill this coming campaign.
The Louisville Cardinals are next at identical 14-1 odds with the Villanova Wildcats (16-1), Florida Gators (20-1) and defending champion Virginia Cavaliers (20-1), rounding out the Top 10 favorites to win the 2019-2020 NCAA Championship!
