Utah basketball's odds for 2015-16 NCAA title improves

New, 4 comments
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

With the dust having settled for all the early entrants for the NBA Draft, Vegas has adjusted the odds on who is going to make a run at the 2016 national championship. Obviously, Duke and Kentucky were heavily hit by early entrants, and luckily Utah had their key big man decide to stay, with Jakob Poeltl.

Below is a list of the various teams and their odds to win the title, both in early April and currently. The Runnin' Utes odds improved from 50/1 to 40/1, which is by-in-large due to the return of Poeltl and the loss of so many players from other programs. Arizona is the only other Pac-12 program with better odds than the Runnin' Utes, at this time, and the Wildcats have seen most of their starting lineup move on.

What do you think of Utah's odds?
