Kentucky is the Favorite to Win Their Ninth Title

It’s never too early to look ahead to March.  Bovada has released their odds for the 2016 Men’s Basketball Championship and at the top of the list with 7/1 odds is UK.  It’s a slight adjustment from May, when Kentucky was slightly behind Duke.  Here’s their current Top 10.

  • Kentucky  7/1
  • Duke  8/1
  • Maryland 10/1
  • North Carolina 10/1
  • Kansas 12/1
  • Virginia 18/1
  • California 20/1
  • Michigan State 20/1
  • Arizona 25/1
  • Gonzaga 25/1
  • Michigan 25/1

Indiana was surprisingly not far off at 15th with 40/1 odds.  Louisville is tied with LSU as a 50/1 longshot.  SEC East opponent Florida and Georgia made the board at 100/1.

    Why? We are pretty much an entirely new team.

    1. somerset bill

      the new’ns are good’ns.

      Because the twins are gone.

    We have at least, one of the best point guards, off guard, power forward and center. No other team is close.

    My question is, “why Duke?” They are average at the 1, 4 and 5.

    1. Sam

      Average for a blue blood, yes.

      I wear my blue-tinted glasses as proudly as anyone, but to say they are “average” at those positions is a bit ridiculous.

      Are we more talented? I think so, even if it’s debatable to some. The season will tell.

  3. Jud

    Point taken, average for a blue blood. Duke’s 1, 4 and 5 are on no one’s list as the best. They are thin and I don’t think they reach the final four.

  4. Leuther

    Nine would be fine…

  5. Suffering Fools

    Top 10? These go to 11.

  6. No, No, No

    Absolutely not! None of that crap this year. all new team, and the expectations should not be even close for this year. We will lose games and hopefully learn from it.
