2016-17 College Basketball National Championship Odds

Just hours after Villanova defeated North Carolina to win the NCAA men’s basketball championship, the Las Vegas based Westgate Superbook posted futures for the 2016-17 season. These odds are always intriguing since it’s still unknown which players will hire an agent and declare for the NBA draft.

Duke (+450) opened as the favorite to win the 2017 national title which is interesting since Brandon Ingram had already declared for the NBA Draft but teammate Grayson Allen decided to return for his junior season. The Blue Devils also welcomed the nation’s number one ranked recruiting class including 6’9″ power forward Harry Giles — the top ranked incoming freshman.

Defending champion Villanova graduated senior’s Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu, but they opened with the third-best title odds at +800. North Carolina opened with the seventh best odds at +1500.

The table below displays the complete list of odds for over 150 schools to win the 2017 men’s basketball national championship.
