The top programs are once again at the top, but let’s make sure we give you the odds for the 2018 season. Let’s take a look at the 2018 National Championship Betting Odds, Picks and Predictions in College Basketball.

The favorite to win the NCAA national title is the Kentucky Wildcats. Coach Calipari and his crew have lost their top two scorers, but have the best recruiting class in the nation coming in. The Wildcats advanced to the Elite 8, but were downed by the Tar Heels of North Carolina. The Kentucky Wildcats out of the SEC are listed at 10/1 odds to win the 2018 National Championship.

One of the Kentucky Wildcats top rivals – the Cardinals of Louisville are near the top for odds to win the national title as well. Rick Pitino and his Cardinals have a bunch returning and will be battle tested out of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Cardinals seem to schedule well enough outside of conference play as well. The Louisville Cardinals are listed at 12/1 odds to win the national title.

The Kansas Jayhawks are also 12/1 odds as well. Bill Self and the Jayhawks lost in the Elite 8 to the Oregon Ducks. They will lose Frank Mason, Josh Jackson and Carlton Bragg for sure. Kansas is still working on finalize their 2018 recruiting class. The Jayhawks are seeking their 14th Big 12 title. Kansas is also listed at 12/1 odds to win the 2018 National Championship.

The Duke Blue Devils will also need to re-load, but we have no doubt that they will do just that. Coach K and his Blue Devils will look differently in 2017-2018, but with several more studs coming in as freshmen this team is going to compete at the top. Duke was upset in the second round by South Carolina, so look for a chip on their shoulder in this one. The Duke Blue Devils are also listed 12/1.

The Wichita State Shockers are likely going to be playing in the American Athletic Conference in 2017 – 2018, and are one of the contenders to win it all. Gregg Marshall has everyone back next season. The Shockers are talented on offense, and one of the toughest teams in the country defensively. The Wichita State Shockers are listed at 20/1 odds to win the 2018 national title.

A few other notables are the North Carolina Tar Heels, the defending champions at 12/1, along with the 2016 national champion Villanova Wildcats, who are also listed at 12/1. Others include Gonzaga at 12/1, Arizona 20/1 and Michigan State at 20/1. When it’s all said and done, the Duke Blue Devils at 12/1 seem to be a pretty solid bet. It seems like the Blue Devils are never “down” for long, and seeing their rivals win it all will make them even more hungry. We are betting the Duke Blue Devils to win the national title at 12/1 odds. Best of luck!
