North Carolina, the second favorite, has +700 odds meaning a $100 bet on the Tar Heels would return $700 in profit if they were to win it all.
The Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels are favored to win the NCAA basketball championship over the Kansas Jayhawks. The Jayhawks are a strong team, but the Tar Heels have been on a tear lately, winning their last eight games by an average of 12 points. Plus, the Tar Heels have won five of their last six meetings with Kansas. If you’re looking to bet on the championship game, it’s probably best to put your money on North Carolina.
Who is favored?
According to the oddsmakers at five of the six largest sportsbooks in Las Vegas, the Jayhawks are slight favorites to beat the Tar Heels. As of Monday morning, Kansas is a 1.5-point favorite at William Hill, MGM, Station Casinos and Westgate. The only book with North Carolina as a favorite is Caesars Entertainment, which has the Tar Heels listed as a 1-point favorite.
The Jayhawks are the clear favorite to win the NCAA Tournament. They have the best record in the country and have been dominant all season long. They are also the defending champions, so they have the experience and talent to make a run at another title. The Tar Heels are a good team, but they don’t stack up against Kansas.
The Tar Heels
While both North Carolina and Kansas have excellent basketball programs, the Tar Heels are favored to win. North Carolina has more recent success, winning the NCAA tournament in 2017 and reaching the Final Four in 2019. Kansas has not won the tournament since 2008, and has not been to the Final Four since 2012. North Carolina also has a more experienced team, with most of their key players being upperclassmen.
The Jayhawks are a team to watch this year. They have the size, the experience, and the coaching to make a run at the title. They also have something that no other team has – the drive to prove themselves.
The Jayhawks lost in the championship game last year, and they are out to prove that they are the best team in the country. They have all the pieces in place to make a run at the title, and they will not be satisfied with anything less than a victory.
The Tar Heels
The Tar Heels are the favorites to win because of their strong performance this season. They have a great team and they are well-coached. They have also been to the Final Four more times than any other team in history.
