Kentucky - +110

The Kentucky Wildcats are the only undefeated team left in the game as of February 12. The Wildcats are 23-0 but they have been put through some very close calls in recent time including a two-point win over LSU and a seven-point win against Florida. The Wildcats' strong presence makes them the +110 favorite to win it all. Whether or not they will become the first team to go completely undefeated in nearly forty years remains to be seen.

Virginia - +800

The Virginia Cavaliers have a 22-1 record but close calls to Louisville and North Carolina State have challenged their status as the second-best team in the game in late. The absence of star Justin Anderson following an injury has hurt the Cavs' chances as they have gone to +800 odds to win the tournament.

Duke - +850

The Duke Blue Devils are 21-3 and have made waves this year after coach Mike Krzyzewski got his thousandth career win. The team is scoring on nearly half their field goals, a feat unmatched by most other teams. This helps to give the Devils a +850 line to win the tournament.

Gonzaga - +900

The Gonzaga Bulldogs want to get to their first ever Final Four this year. The Bulldogs have been dominant throughout the year, averaging more than 80 points per game while having only one loss, an overtime loss to Arizona. They even took one first-place vote from Kentucky in the USA Today poll recently. The Bulldogs play in the less-than-stellar WCC though, thus putting their odds for winning the tournament down to +900.

Wisconsin - +900

The Wisconsin Badgers hold a commanding lead over the Big Ten and have only two losses this year. The team's rebounding struggles have hurt their chances of getting better odds than +900. Much of this could be chalked up to Frank Kaminsky's decision to stick with the Badgers for his senior season instead of heading out early to the professional circuit.

Arizona - +1400

The 20-3 Arizona Wildcats are neck and neck with Utah for the top of the Pac-12. An upset loss to Arizona State has placed a real cause for concern as the Cats are now at +1400 odds to win.

Kansas - +2200

At 20-4, the Kansas Jayhawks are primed to make a run for a fourth national title. While the Jayhawks have +2200 odds, they still have four games left against ranked opponents. This also comes amid concerns over whether star player Perry Ellis is going to jump this offseason into the NBA Draft.

Villanova - +2500

Betting lines for the Villanova Wildcats have them at +2500 to win the title. Major upcoming games with Butler and Providence could influence their future odds.
