Now that draft chips have been played, Michigan State is viewed as the favorite to win the 2020 national championship according to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook.
Michigan State stands as the 8-1 betting favorite to be the last team standing in college basketball next season, only a step ahead of Kentucky (10-1) and Duke (10-1).
The Blue Devils are projected to lose three starters -- Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish -- in the 2019 NBA Draft lottery.
All-American point guard Cassius Winston, the Big Ten Player of the Year, pulled out of the draft and is back as the leader of the Spartans for head coach Tom Izzo.
Down a peg are defending champions Virginia -- losing guards Ty Jerome, Kyle Guy and forward De'Andre Hunter -- and Gonzaga, teams that lost key players to the draft since the initial season-ending championship odds were released.
Gonzaga subtracted Brandon Clarke and Rui Hachimura, and was bumped down from 12-1 to 20-1 odds.
Virginia was the favorite to win again in 2020 in the immediate aftermath of the net-cutting ceremony in Minneapolis. The Cavaliers are now also on the 20-1 line.
Up are Memphis -- on the momentum of a star-studded recruiting class for Penny Hardaway -- and Kansas. The Tigers and Jayhawks have matching 12-1 odds.
North Carolina, like Duke, is losing talent to the draft but quickly and easily replenished its roster.
North Carolina and Villanova are 16-1.
