2020 March Madness Odds: Super Early Look into the Future2020 March Madness Odds: Super Early Look into the Future

As one season closes, another is set to start in just a mere six months and it’s never too early to place a futures bet on who you think will be the team cutting down the nets at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium at Atlanta next April. The Virginia Cavaliers maintained the 2019 title, their first in school history, however they sit on the oddsboard, two areas behind the Kentucky Wildcats, who would be the +500 favorite.
BetOnline has Kentucky since the favorite to win the 2020 college hoops championship at +500 followed by Duke in +600, Virginia at +650, Michigan State in +800, and Michigan and North Carolina at +1200 to round out the top teams around the oddsboard.
Tread Gently with Kentucky
Kentucky had a successful 2018-19 effort, placing with a 30-7 record en route to an Elite Eight berth before falling to Auburn in overtime. Undoubtedly head coach John Calipari will possess the Wildcats playing at a high degree, but he’ll have to enter the season with rather a different look. Four of Kentucky’s starting five are very likely to graduate or be drafted in the NBA since Reid Travis is an old and P.J. Washington, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro will likely be moving pro.
All is not lost, however, as the Wildcats have done a great job recruitment for the upcoming season, securing two 2019 McDonald’s All-Americans, shooting guard Tyrese Maxey and little forward Khalil Whitney. I anticipate sophomores Immanuel Quickley and E.J. Montgomery to lead the fee and will work nicely with the incoming freshmen. With their brand new appearance, I’d be hesitant to put a wager on this club at +500 at this point.
Kansas Could be Well-Balanced and Experienced
Kansas had a very interesting 2018-19, revealing flashes of brilliance along with being rated in the top five in the AP survey for eight weeks, including 2 weeks in the top place. Overall, the Jayhawks finished the year with a 26-10 record, falling to Auburn from the Round of 32. Kansas was a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde club as it came to house and away splits, heading a perfect 16-0 in Allen Fieldhouse but only 3-8 in true road games — very confusing results.
The Jayhawks needed to battle through accidents, losing protect Lagerald Vick for its season in early February. He is a senior and will not be back next year. Additionally, junior center Udoka Azubuike played just nine matches in 2018-19. However, Kansas, despite those huge holes in the frontcourt and backcourt, nevertheless needed a Round of 32 appearance. The Jayhawks should be feisty this forthcoming season as I don’t expect Azubuike to be drafted and Vick will be their sole loss, so odds of +2000 provide decent value.
Auburn Providing Best Value
Head coach Bruce Pearl has to be proud of the effort his team put in this past season, going 30-10, including winning the SEC championship and falling only to eventual national champion Virginia 63-62 in the Final Four. The team had four seniors, such as shield Bryce Brown, who led the team with 15.9 points per game.
However, the center of the group should come back for the 2019-20 season, most notably Jared Harper and Chuma Okeke, who united for 27.3 ppg. Harper led the team with 5.8 assists per game, while Okeke was the group leader with 6.8 rebounds per game. In addition, Pearl has recruited five players that have signed letters of intent, such as little forward Isaac Okoro,who’s the 37th-ranked recruit. I think this group will cause waves and +3300 may be a steal as we close March next year.
