It’s never too early to look ahead to next year. A preseason Top 25 is just the start. How about some 2019 national title odds, courtesy of the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook:

  • Duke – 5/1
  • Villanova – 8/1
  • Kansas – 8/1
  • Kentucky 8/1
  • North Carolina – 12/1
  • Michigan State – 15/1
  • Virginia – 15/1
  • Gonzaga – 15/1
  • Michigan – 20/1
  • Oregon – 20/1
  • Auburn – 30/1
  • West Virginia – 30/1
  • UCLA – 30/1
  • Arizona 100/1
  • Memphis 200/1
  • Loyola Chicago 500/1

It’s little surprise to see Duke in the top spot with a recruiting class that features the top-three players in the 2018 class while Villanova, Kansas and Kentucky share both blue bloodlines and 8/1 odds, second-best nationally.
