College basketball national title odds: Kentucky and Memphis are best bets, but there’s not much value in Duke

Michigan State returns three of its top four scorers from last season’s Final Four club. Michigan State has a Hall of Fame coach in Tom Izzo. Michigan State boasts the potential preseason favorite to win national player of the year: Cassius Winston.

Is it any surprise that Michigan State is the favorite to win it all in 2019-20?

The Spartans have the depth, talent and momentum to pick up where they left off last season in Minneapolis, and updated betting odds from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook have them (still!) as the outright favorite to win the title next April in Atlanta at 6-1 odds. Trailing closely behind them is Kentucky at 7-1, Kansas at 8-1, Duke at 10-1, and North Carolina at 14-1. A host of other programs enter the picture between 18-1 and 25-1.

While the best odds suggest they are accompanied by the best teams, not all happen to be the best bets. So let’s take a spin at some teams I like — and some I don’t followed by the latest odds on each team from Westgate.
