According to them, Kentucky holds the third-best odds to win the title as they stand at +1100.
Who's your dark horse to win this year's #NCAA basketball championship? Here are the current favorites. (BetOnline)— Odds Shark (@OddsShark) August 3, 2021

The Cats currently trail only Gonzaga (+600) and Michigan (+800). They are currently tied with UCLA as well for the third-best odds.
After its worst season in 100 years, being anywhere close to the top of these title odds just shows the respect and the power of the Kentucky brand. Nonetheless, John Calipari will have to get his players to produce on the court, as they were perceived title favorites last season and ended with a 9-16 record.
Whatever the case is, it appears that Kentucky is set for another title-contending season this year. With a revamped staff, and practically whole new roster expectations are back to how they are usually in Lexington. Now it’s time to put Kentucky back on top of the college basketball world.
Will this be the year? Things seems to be going well this summer at the Joe Craft Center.
