After On-Court Brawl, Jayhawks National Championship Odds Drop To +900

The 2019-2020 college basketball season has been a total mess. Five different teams have been No. 1 in the rankings and then lost a game as the No. 1 team. One of which was the Kansas Jayhawks, who were in the middle of headlines this week when their team got into an on-court brawl with rivals Kansas State. After suspensions have been doled out, let’s take a look at the new favorite to win the National Championship and see how far the Jayhawks have fallen:

DUKE BLUE DEVILS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS: +800

The Blue Devils have lost two straight games in the past week, to Clemson on the road and to Louisville at home. The Blue Devils are still a good choice, though, because they won at Michigan State and have some other results which will give them a high seed in the NCAA Tournament. Two losses won’t completely reshape the situation for Mike Krzyzewski’s team – especially with one of the losses being to No. 11 Louisville.

Duke is still in good position to win the Atlantic Coast Conference, especially if it beats Florida State in a few weeks. There is no reason to panic for the Blue Devils, who will have a very legitimate chance of winning it all when the NCAA Tournament begins.

GONZAGA BULLDOGS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS: +900

The Zags could maintain their ranking for a long time, given that they have escaped the non-conference portion of the schedule and will feast against the West Coast Conference, a scenario similar to last season. That being the case, Gonzaga has a very good chance of being a No. 1 seed in the West Region for the 2020 NCAA Tournament.

Even if the Zags don’t get the top seed in the West, they might get the top seed in another region and still get a good draw in the bracket. Gonzaga’s status as a national title contender is legitimate. Number one seeds generally have more favorable paths than other teams.

KANSAS JAYHAWKS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS: +900

The Jayhawks have to deal with the 12-game suspension to forward Silvio De Sousa, a result of the brawl earlier this week against Kansas State. This might seem on the surface to be a bad thing for the Jayhawks, but some people close to the program think it could benefit the Jayhawks, whose offense has not been clicking this season and needs refreshment of some kind. Now coach Bill Self has to look for different lineup combinations and groupings, which could work to his benefit. This is why the Jayhawks’ odds have not dropped and are right there with other national championship contenders.

LOUISVILLE CARDINALS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS: +900

The Cardinals won at Duke this past Saturday and then beat Georgia Tech to avoid a letdown. Winning at Duke gets everyone’s attention, so it is unwise to look past the Cardinals when considering them as national championship contenders. If they keep this up, Louisville will be a very high NCAA seed in March. The Cardinals have high-quality wins which will prevent them from severely dropping on the seeding list. If Louisville can win at Florida State later this season, it could win the regular season ACC championship and beat out Duke for that honor.

MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS: +1200

You might recall that Michigan State entered the year as the top team in terms of the college basketball futures. However, they’ve had a rough go of things both early and late. They started the season with a loss and two losses in their first five games. They’ve also now lost two of their last three overall.

Michigan State has been poor away from home, which is a very alarming sign heading into the NCAA Tournament. The more the season moves along, the better the reasons to doubt Michigan State’s staying power.
