Notables

 

Michigan State +600

Sparty is the favorite entering the season, and the odds have already moved from +700 to +600 since Halloween. With a vastly experienced starting five including two seniors in Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford, Michigan State is poised to make a run and comes in as the preseason favorite and preseason #1 in the Top 25.

A lack of size could be the downfall for Michigan State, but given the level of athleticism and experience it will be a tall task to bring down the Spartans.

 

Memphis +1200

Penny Hardaway has the Memphis faithful buzzing in Tennessee, and the new-look Tigers are one of the more popular teams entering the 2019-2020 season. Memphis has four freshman in the starting five including the number-one ranked prospect in all of basketball in James Wiseman. The talent is there, is this the beginning of one of the new powerhouses in college basketball?

Kentucky 4%
Memphis 4%
Maryland 4%
Villanova 4%
Florida 3%
Michigan 3%
Oregon 3%
Texas Tech 2%
Virginia 2%
Louisville 2%

The current favorite in Michigan State has brought in the majority of the bets at 7%.

Duke comes in at number two with six percent of the bets taken, but all four teams that have brought in 5% of the tickets or more are all ranked in the preseason top 10:

  • MSU (1) 7%
  • Duke (4) 6%
  • North Carolina (9) 5%
  • Kansas (3) 5%

It starts to get interesting with Memphis at 4% of the tickets, but they are ranked 14th. As aforementioned, this is a very popular team amongst William Hill bettors.

Michigan is not ranked in the Top 25, but they have received 3% of the bets, which is more than defending National Champion Virginia, who has just 2% of the bets and is ranked 11th.

 

Percentage of Handle

School Percentage of Handle
Duke 11%
Michigan State 9%
Kentucky 8%
Kansas 7%
Florida 6%
Memphis 6%
Louisville 4%
North Carolina 4%
Maryland 4%
Oregon 3%
Gonzaga 3%
Washington 3%
Villanova 3%
Arizona 2%
Marquette 2%

There has been a lot of money on Duke, as they are the only team to bring in more than 10% of the total betting handle. With 6% of the total tickets on Duke but 11% of the money, there is a plethora of hope and expectation for Coach K to bring home another championship.

Michigan State is second with 9%, but that’s just a two-percent difference from the total percentage of tickets.

One notable is Washington, who is not listed in the top 15 teams in percentage of bets taken, but they have 3% of the total handle. Sharp money on the Huskies? That may be. Washington is ranked just outside the Top 25.
