As you might have expected, after losing just two players to the NBA Draft, Kentucky has become the favorite to win the national title at 5/1 odds.

Duke  (9/1) and Wisconsin (16/1) round out the top three, but the most interesting bet here seems to be Arizona, who is getting 16/1 odds. After the Final Four, we ranked Arizona as the No. 1 team in the country assuming they were be losing Nick Johnson and Aaron Gordon. We didn’t expect Kentucky to return all of the guys that they did, but if I was a betting man, that is where my money would be headed.

Here are all the
