2015 NCAA Title Odds

The Sweet 16 field is set and Kentucky remains the cream of the crop as they’re still listed at even money to win the title. Upsets to Villanova and Virginia opened up the East Region for NC State, Louisville, Oklahoma, or Michigan State to make the Final Four.

Below shows how the odds have changed since the preseason at The Greek and how they’ve changed from the start of the tourney at 5Dimes:

Team Odds before Elite 8 Odds before Sweet 16 Odds before Tourney Odds in Preseason (Greek)
Kentucky -118 100 120 500
Duke 715 650 975 1000
Arizona 715 600 875 1200
Wisconsin 815 900 925 800
Gonzaga 1235 1000 1925 4000
Michigan State 1450 1500 7000 2500
Notre Dame 2550 2800 4700 10000
Louisville 3100 3000 7500 2500
North Carolina N/A 2500 5300 800
West Virginia N/A 8500 21000 10000
Oklahoma N/A 4500 5200 3000
Wichita State N/A 5000 7500 3000
NC State N/A 5000 40000 15000
Xavier N/A 7000 32500 25000
UCLA N/A 7500 50000 3000
Utah N/A 2800 5500 12500

Notably Michigan State has made a massive move from +7000 to +1500 while Gonzaga has also made a sizable stride going from +1950 to +1000. Kentucky is still a big favorite overall at even money with Duke and Arizona the closest contenders.

South: Duke +120, Gonzaga +150, Utah +400, UCLA +1600
