There’s still nine months to go before the 2015 NCAA Championship starts, but college basketball betting waits for no man. The future favorite is Kentucky, followed by second tier featuring stiff competition among Arizona, Duke, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Curiously, this year’s champions UConn appear far removed from the spotlight.
When it was all said and done this year, Kentucky was only second best, but as far as college basketball betting for 2015 goes, all signs point to the Wildcats reclaiming the top spot they accomplished in 2012. John Calipari’s biggest hurdle on the way will arguably be the Duke Blue Devils. However, each team was differently affected by whether its key players decided to declare themselves eligible for the NBA draft. For example, while Kentucky retained Alex Poythress, Willie Cauley-Stein Dakari Johnson, and twin starting guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison -who will be joined by top recruits Karl Towns and Trey Lyles-, the Blue Devils lost Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood.
