    Big Five

    There are five teams listed with single-digit NCAA basketball odds and each is a marquee school. The Kentucky Wildcats won the title two years ago and they have another great recruiting class. They are listed as the favorites with odds of 3.5-1. The Kansas Jayhawks are the second choice at 7-1 and they have the top recruit in the country in Andrew Wiggins who is already being projected as the top pick in next year’s NBA Draft. The defending champions, Louisville Cardinals are listed at 9-1 along with the Michigan State Spartans while the Duke Blue Devils are 9.5-1.

    Live Longshots

    Keep an eye on the VCU Rams and Wisconsin Badgers who are each listed at 55-1. Both could start hot and have great seasons. Also look at the Florida Gators but don’t bet them yet. The team has a ton of injuries and they might start the season slowly so their odds should rise. In a couple of months they should get everyone back and be a team that can challenge in the SEC.
