March is here and we all know what that means: Madness is upon us.

Soon enough, the brackets will be out. The bets will be flowing, the Cinderellas will begin dancing, and college basketball fans will start inching closer to that “One Shining Moment.”

When it’s all said and done, only one team will have what it takes to withstand the fiery onslaught from competitors, climb the ladder, and cut down the final net. According to the oddsmakers at BetOnline, these are the teams with the best odds to win the 2019-20 College Basketball National Championship.

Odds courtesy of the BetOnline.ag as of March 8, 2020.

Dayton Flyers (+1000)

Seeing the Dayton Flyers among the favorites to cut down the nets might be surprising to the casual observer, but for ardent college basketball fans, it’s no surprise. In fact, it’s one of the best storylines of the entire year.

Led by sensational sophomore Obi Toppin — whose 20.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game along with nightly SportsCenter Top 10-worthy highlights have made him a frontrunner for the Wooden Award — the Flyers have lost just two games on the year (29-2), are undefeated in conference play, and rank No. 3 in the land according to the AP poll. Don’t sleep on Dayton.

Gonzaga Bulldogs (+800)

Mark Few always has his Gonzaga Bulldogs ready to compete at the highest level. This year is no exception.

The Zags are a handful on the offensive end, leading college basketball in points per game (87.7), field goals, and offensive rating (119.8). But unlike most top-tier teams, the Bulldogs are beating opponents with a balanced attack that features six players averaging double figures.

Gonzaga has what it takes to finally be the last one standing.

Kansas Jayhawks (+500)

Leave it to one of the blue bloods to separate itself from the pack as the tournament nears.

The Kansas Jayhawks are probably the most complete team in college basketball. Bill Self’s squad is 28-3 on the year, 17-1 in Big-12 play, and winners of 10 straight contests.

The Jayhawks are a safe bet to cut down the nets when it’s all said and done.

Others teams:

  • Baylor Bears (+1200)
  • Duke Blue Devils (+1200)
  • Michigan State Spartans (+1200)
  • Kentucky Wildcats (+1400)
  • Florida State Seminoles (+2000)
  • Louisville Cardinals (+2000)
  • Maryland Terrapins (+2000)
  • San Diego State Aztecs (+2000)
