While our pets’ heads are falling off here in Lexington, many people outside of the Big Blue Nation see the Wildcats as a legit title contender in the NCAA tournament.
In fact, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, known as the world’s largest sports book, currently lists Kentucky as the favorite to win it all at 6-to-1.
No. 3 Kansas is next at 7-to-1 odds; followed by No. 10 Duke, No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 5 UCLA, all at 8-to-1 odds for the championship.
This says Las Vegas respectfully disagrees with the “No way this team reaches the Elite Eight” and “They won’t make the second weekend” crowds.
