UK odds-on national title favorite; Cards 25/1 – The Courier

John Calipari talks about 116-68 exhibition win against Pikeville.

There’s no questioning the national championship favorite when it comes to gambling odds.

While some college basketball experts have sided with Arizona and other Duke, most money is headed the University of Kentucky’s way.

Bovada.LV, an offshore gaming website, on Tuesday released 2015 national championship odds headed by favorite UK at 7/2, followed by Arizona and Wisconsin at 9/1 and Duke and North Carolina at 12/1.

The University of Louisville is Bovada’s 10th pick at 25/1, while Indiana, despite recent off-the-court troubles, remained on the board at 100/1.

Since first release of Bovada’s odds on April 28, not long after UK finished a runner up in the NCAA tournament and most of the Cats’ roster chose to return to school, John Calipari’s team moved to its current price from 5/1.

U of L and IU’s odds haven’t changed.
