2021 College Basketball National Championship Odds
The eyes of the college sports world have been focused on the football field, but as we head into September, the prospect of a “normal” college basketball season is looking a little murky. The Pac-12 and Ivy League have announced that they will not resume athletics until January 1 at the earliest, essentially cancelling the non-conference schedule for all of those schools. Teams that are planning on playing are over a month behind in terms of finalizing their schedules for this season. For context, Penn State’s 2019-20 schedule was released on July 17 of last year. North Carolina announced their non-conference schedule in June of last year. We’re now into September, and there’s been no such progress for this upcoming season.
At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Gonzaga is now the 10-to-1 favorite atop the odds board, followed by Baylor (+1200), Villanova (+1400) and Kentucky (+1400). Other notables include: Duke at 20-to-1; Kansas at 25-to-1; and North Carolina at 40-to-1. The 2021 Final Four is scheduled to be played April 3-5 2021 in Indianapolis.

Will either of last year’s mid-major darlings be able to make another run in 2021? San Diego State has opened at 100-to-1 and Dayton has opened at 200-to-1 to win next year’s championship. For those that are curious, Rick Pitino’s Iona Gaels have opened at 2000-to-1.
