With the 2020 season in the books, folks in Vegas are already hard at work projecting who will cut down the nets in March of 2021.

Per Odds Shark, the Kentucky Wildcats have the fourth-best odds to win the 2021 national championship at +1100.

The Cats sit behind the 2019 champion Virginia Cavaliers, Gonzaga Bulldogs and Kansas Jayhawks.

As of now, Kentucky is scheduled to play three of the 15 teams Odds Shark lists with the top odds, as they’ll play Kansas in the Champions Classic, Louisville at the KFC Yum Center in December, and Florida during conference play.

The Wildcats 2020-21 roster will feature two McDonald's All-Americans in BJ Boston and Terence Clarke along with four other top 50 recruits

Members of the 2019-20 roster, such as Keion Brooks and Johnny Juzang, are also expected back as the team looks to push for a ninth national championship.
