We’re one week into the 2023-2024 NCAA college basketball season, and we’ve already seen some movement on the BetMGM National Championship leaderboard. Arizona slid into the top five, while Michigan State fell out of the BetMGM top five list of favorites.

Please join me as I take a closer look at the CBB odds for the top five on the BetMGM NCAA Men’s National Championship for Betting KY.

The college basketball season can be a wild ride, and figuring out in November which team will win the National Championship is daunting. The purpose of this column is two-fold–we want you to see how frequently the betting board moves, and hopefully, we can find some value when we do make our National Championship Futures bet.

Also, feel free to line shop at one of our best Kentucky sportsbooks. I’m only using BetMGM KY because they are widely available and had the best board when I began this weekly column. Please visit our list and check out the other Kentucky sports betting apps available to you.

Kansas Jayhawks (2-0)

The Kansas Jayhawks are off to a flying start and are the consensus No. 1 across all of the major polls. The Jayhawks have one game this week, and it’s a big one when they meet No. 17 Kentucky on Tuesday night for Game 2 of the State Farm Champions Classic at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The Jayhawks will be off until Week 3, when they meet Chaminade in the Allstate Maui Classic.

Purdue Boilermakers (3-0)

The Purdue Boilermakers have mowed down the competition thus far and are ranked No. 2 in the country. The non-conference season heats up for Purdue beginning next week when they head to Maui for the Allstate Maui Classic. They face their first real season test when they open the event against No. 11 Gonzaga. We’ll learn much more about the Boilermakers after their contest with the Bulldogs.

Duke Blue Devils (1-1)

The Duke Blue Devils were knocked off at home by an underrated Arizona group and, as a result, fell from No. 2 to No. 9 in the AP Top 25 rankings. Duke has another tough contest Tuesday when they face No. 18 Michigan State in Game 1 of tonight’s State Farm Champions Classic. The Blue Devils have a gimme on Friday night to end Week 2 at home against Bucknell. A pair of wins this week could send Duke straight up the leaderboard.

Arizona Wildcats (3-0)

The Arizona Wildcats climbed up the leaderboard after their away upset at then No. 2 Duke. They are 3-0 on the season and ranked No. 3 in the country. Noted NCAA expert Kenneth Pomeroy ranks Arizona No. 6 with good reason–they are loaded with tremendous experience. The Wildcats host Belmont Friday night–Belmont is usually pretty good, and if Arizona gets past Belmont could move to No. 2 on the BetMGM board.

Kentucky Wildcats (2-0)

The No. 17 Kentucky Wildcats are still on the BetMGM top five list, and rightly so–the Wildcats have jumped out to a 2-0 lead and have been convincing in both victories. Their road to the championship becomes difficult–they face No. 1 Kansas tonight in Chicago and, after that, have a cupcake on their schedule when they welcome Stonehill to Rupp Arena on Friday night. A loss to Kansas will likely knock the Wildcats off the top five and maybe out of the top 25 rankings.
