Updated futures were posted by Bovada in Las Vegas on Friday regarding the 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.

The Villanova Wildcats are among those who are favored highly to win the National Championship. The ‘Cats sit at 11/1, with the same odds as last year’s runner up in the North Carolina Tar Heels as well as the Kansas Jayhawks, to take home the title. The current favorites to win the championship are the Duke Blue Devils and UCLA Bruins, both of whom sit at 5/1.

Going down the ladder, the next Big East team found is the Creighton Bluejays. The Jays, who were curiously not even on the board back when the season started, are now sitting at 33/1 to win the championship. It’s inarguably the biggest jump by any team in the country from back on November 10 when the most recent odds were posted, and perhaps for good reason as Creighton has been one of the best teams in the Big East and the nation as well.

The Bluejays have the asme odds as the Florida State Seminoles, Syracuse Orange, West Virginia Mountaineers and their fellow Big East peer: the Xavier Musketeers. The Musketeers were previously 40/1 to win the title, but have since seen their odds increase. After being 150/1 to start the season, the Butler Bulldogs rose up to 50/1 as of Friday after their hot start. They have the same odds to win the title as the Arizona Wildcats, Purdue Boilermakers and Saint Mary’s Gaels.

Various Big East longshots include the Georgetown Hoyas (150/1), Seton Hall Pirates (200/1), and the Marquette Golden Eagles (300/1). After being 300/1 to start the season, the St. John’s Red Storm unsurprisingly find themselves off the board. The lone teams that are off the board entirely are the DePaul Blue Demons and Providence Friars.
