The selection committee has unveiled the field of 68 teams that will be playing in the 2015 NCAA Tournament. Here you will find a list of each team’s odds on their chances of winning the Big Dance. There is also a preview for a few of the top contenders to take down the championship. At the bottom of the page is a list of each team and their prices.  Just like we have seen in past seasons, the favorite also happens to be the overall No. 1 seed.

Kentucky (+127)

The Kentucky Wildcats are looking to become the first unbeaten team since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers.  They have opened the season 34-0 and have rarely been tested.  They did have to survive a pair of overtime games early in their SEC schedule against Ole Miss and Texas A&M, but aside from that they’ve pretty much played flawless basketball.  The scary part is that they may be playing their best ball coming in.  They have won each of their last four games by 15 points or more as they swept through the SEC Tournament.

Arizona (+875)

The Arizona Wildcats are actually the second-favorites to win the NCAA Tournament despite being a No. 2 seed.  There’s no question they got snubbed as they enter the big dance with a 31-3 record after winning the Pac-12 Tournament.  They should have been a No. 1 seed over Duke.  The fact that they are the second-favorites just goes to show you what Las Vegas thinks about this team.  Their three losses this season came by a combined nine points, which is how close they are to being tied with Kentucky at 34-0 right now.

Wisconsin (+925)

The Wisconsin Badgers were far and away the best team in the Big Ten this season.  They wound up going 31-3 overall with a 16-2 mark in league play.  They ended up losing to Duke, Rutgers and Maryland this season.  The loss to Rutgers was obviously bad, but they were also without two of their best players in that game.  The Badgers have won five straight games by 11 points or more coming into the tournament, including an 80-69 (OT) victory over Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship.

Duke (+975)

The Duke Blue Devils aren’t deserving of a No. 1 seed in my opinion.  They were even put into what I believe to be the easiest region in the South.  The committee just loves awarding Duke year in and year out, whether it is deserving or not.  They did still go 29-4 on the season, but they did not win the ACC regular season or postseason titles.  If anything, they should not have been a No. 1 seed over Virginia.  They lost to Notre Dame 74-64 in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament.

Villanova (+975)

The Villanova Wildcats somehow went under the radar all season.  They finished with a 32-2 record overall and ran away with the Big East with a 16-2 mark.  Jay Wright’s club enters the NCAA Tournament on a 15-game winning streak.  They swept the Big East Tournament with an 84-49 win over Marquette, a 63-61 triumph against Providence, and a 69-52 blowout of Xavier.  The committee is obviously down on the Big East, but the Wildcats would compete for a conference title in any other league in America.
