Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

The college basketball season is well underway, and is about to get ramped up even more as conference play begins across the country.

Through this point in the season, we have already seen some of the crazy moments that the sport always brings to the table, and some upsets to go along with it.

For the Kentucky Wildcats they are currently on a six-game winning streak after dropping the opening game against Duke, and have some quality opponents on the docket for the coming weeks.

With 2022 right around the corner, DraftKings has released some updated National Title odds for the 2021-22 college basketball season.

For the Cats they are currently sitting at +1800 odds to bring home the hardware in March.

Ahead of Kentucky are eight teams: Gonzaga (+450), Purdue (+750), Duke (+800), Kansas (+1400), Villanova (+1400), UCLA (+1400), Michigan (+1500), and Texas (+1500). Another notable foe includes Ohio State (+2200).

With two of those opponents — Kansas and Ohio State — in the coming months, Kentucky still holds its own destiny to climb their way into being one of the top contenders come Selection Sunday.

Alongside the title odds, DraftKings also has updated their odds for who will win National Player of the Year (Wooden Award).

Leading the way is Duke’s Paolo Banchero (+400), followed closely by Drew Timme (+550).

For Kentucky, only two players make the cut in Sahvir Wheeler and Kellan Grady both at +10000.

The Cats have a chance to make some noise here in the next few months. Best of luck everyone, and please bet responsibly.
