The latest odds to win the Men’s NCAA Basketball Championship were released by Bovada this week.

Michigan State and Villanova are tied for first (9/2), followed by Duke (6/1) then Purdue and Virginia (both 7/1) to round out the top-5. Arizona and Kansas (16/1), then Oklahoma (18/1), are the only teams in front of the Cats.
