Kentucky’s odds of winning the title are now 14-1

One month ago, Kentucky was a 5-1 favorite to win the National Championship, but their Jekyll and Hyde performances since then have caused their stock to drop quite a bit in Vegas. According to Bovada, Kentucky’s odds to win the title are now 14-1, the sixth best of any program in the country.

  • Kansas: 7.5-1
  • Michigan State: 8.5-1
  • Oklahoma: 9-1
  • North Carolina: 10-1
  • Duke: 12-1
  • Kentucky: 14-1
  • Virginia: 14-1
  • Xavier: 14-1
  • Purdue: 16-1
  • Maryland: 16-1
  • Louisville: 16-1
  • LSU: 16-1

I realize they just beat us, but LSU’s odds of winning the title should be more like 75-1. Last week, most people didn’t think they’d even make the tournament. A few good wins does not a title contender make.

    winning 4 in March does make a title contender. And LSU has a couple of months to improve. This is after they royally kicked our a$$ with the #1 draft pick setting on the bench. The argument should be about UK at 14-1 when we had 2 players foul out with a total of playing time of 20 min. UK at 67-1 is more like it. Lets get this over with so we can have some Spring football. Go Stoops. #ALLIN

    I think part of the drop is related to where UK will be seeded. Unless there is a ‘toughness’ turnaround this Saturday, I foresee a 4-6 seed, which will make the road to the end much tougher, regardless of whether this team could really win it all (which I seriously doubt).

    It should be 1000 to 1. Cal missed badly on 2 recruits….. Briscoe & Skal.

    It’s impossible to bet and make money on KY championship odds. I mean, we looked horrible, and we’re still only 14-1? The plan was to lose a few games so it would drop to 50-1, then we could all bet big $ on them, and we make our magical comeback run and all get rich in the process. Guess that’s too much to ask. Ok fellas, no need to keep tanking, Vegas is onto us.
