As you can see, a quartet of teams are all considered co-favorites heading into the 2017-18 season with Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and Louisville all identical +650 picks to win the 2018 championship. Reigning national champion North Carolina stands alone as a +800 pick while 2015-16 national championship winner Villanova also sits alone as a +1200 pick to win their second title in three years after losing NBA-bound shooting guard Josh Hart. National championship runner-up Gonzaga also stands alone as a +1500 pick to win the national championship after coming up just short this past season. Four more teams are all +1600 picks to hoist the national championship hardware this season in Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, West Virginia and UCLA. Overachieving Butler and underachieving Indiana are both +2000 picks while defensive-minded Virginia and offensive-minded Wichita State and 2016-17 Final Four participant Oregon are all identical +2500 picks. Last but not least, a quartet of teams are all +4000 national championship hopefuls in Northwestern, Seton Hall, SMU and Florida State. If you like teams loaded with five-star recruits, then Kentucky or Duke fit the bill. If you’re looking for teams that are offering great value against their slightly longer odds, then Villanova or Gonzaga could be the teams for you. No matter which teams you like best, you can expect the 2017-18 college basketball season to be another thriller in what has suddenly become a succession of them.
