Kentucky No Longer Favorite to Win 2016 NCAA Title


According to betting website and sportsbook Bovada, Kentucky is no longer the favorite to win the 2016 NCAA Men’s College Basketball title. The favorite is now Maryland at 9/1 odds with Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina right behind the Terps at 10/1.

The next highest SEC team is LSU and Texas A&M at 50/1 with Louisville not expected to do much at 40/1. Going to be weird not seeing even money next to Kentucky heading into the season as was the case for the majority of last year.

The top 10 according to Bovada:

Maryland 9/1

Kentucky 10/1

North Carolina 10/1

Duke 10/1

Kansas 16/1

Michigan State 16/1

Arizona 20/1

California 20/1

Iowa State 20/1

Virginia 20/1

    California should be about where ul is. I’ll be Suprised if they can stay in the top 25 next season. Jaylen Brown is good… But he can’t carry that whole team

    Anyone upset by this is an idiot. Have a feeling that there will be no major conference teams with fewer than 3 losses going into the tourney next year.

    I’m OK with where we are. I’m getting tired of starting out at No. 1. You have no place to go but down. Maybe this will help the team stay motivated to improve.
