The way-to-early future bets that we can all laugh at come March, or all prosper together after they hit. Here are a few features that I placed this week, let's get ready to roll!
Odds via BetMGM and DraftKings. This blog is for entertainment purposes. Please do your research before betting and gamble responsibly.
Player of the Year
Armando Bacot (+700)
The Tarheels have lofty expectations after last season, and their No. 1 guy returns for some unfinished business. Last season, Bacot averaged 16.3 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game in his best season ever as a Tar Heel. If UNC remains on top, I like Armando Bacot to win the Wooden.
An interesting bet is Kentucky standout, Oscar Tshiebwe (+700), but there hasn't been a repeat winner of the Wooden since Virginia's Ralph Sampson did it back in 1980-81 and 81-82.
Odds to Make the 2023 Final Four
North Carolina (+900)
I gave my analysis on last weeks episode of The House of College Hoops show, but if you want a bet that will turn some heads, Tennessee to make the final four is a doozy.
UNC to win (+1200)
You slap a line that's over 1,000 and I'm gonna take it. I don't think Gonzaga has the juice for a deep run, and time after time they fall short. I'm bullish on Hubert Davis, and I think they can make another deep run. With Bacot, Caleb Love, RJ Davis, and Leaky Black, the team is deep and have a ton of offensive firepower to cut the nets down.
