2021 College Basketball Championship Odds: Gonzaga 10-to-1 Favorite

2021 College Basketball National Championship Odds

We have odds, but we don’t have a schedule. As college basketball teams across the country inch closer to the start of practice, scheduling across the country remains a mystery. 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 approaching November, and there’s been no such progress for this upcoming season. News about preseason non-conference tournaments is slowly beginning to trickle out, but conferences have not announced their league schedules.

How does that uncertainty affect the futures market? 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 (+1600). 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.
