NCAA Basketball Conference Championship Odds

October 23, 2009

NCAA Basketball season is almost upon us and the conference championship odds out now.

This season’s favorite pick to win it all is the Kansas Jayhawks so it’s no surprise that they’re also the heavy favorites to win the SEC East at -875. Jayhawks fans are already clearing their schedule for the Final Four, but the Tennessee Volunteers at +400 might prove to be more than a road-bump along the way.

The ACC features last year’s championship team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Tar Heels have another strong team and are the favorites to take the ACC at +122 while the Duke Blue Devils (+150) and Georgia Tech (+400) have the best chances for an upset.

The Big 10 and the Big East promise to have the closest battles for top spot.

In the Big 10 Michigan State (+125) and the Purdue Boilermakers (+150) are both strong teams with a legitimate chance to take the division.

The real dog-fight is in the Big East. The Villanova Wildcats (+205) are favored to take the conference, but the Connecticut Huskies, Louisville Cardinals, and West Virginia Mountaineers are all pegged at +250 to win the conference.

The Pac-10 looks to be a fight between the UCLA Bruins at +175, the California Golden Bears at +200, and the Washington Huskies at +225.
