I typically understand having Kentucky as the first betting favorite for an upcoming season. You know they're going to get five-stars and you also don't have any idea who's leaving and coming back on every other major team. This year, however, it seems a little strange. The Cats are replacing everyone, and the 2017 class is, by most accounts, not overly strong.

Regardless, Kentucky is once again the early favorite in Vegas, while Louisville is tied with a handful of other teams as the third choice.
