Michigan State is now the early favorite ahead of Kentucky to win the NCAA championship in 2018, according to the latest odds from the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas.

After opening up at 20/1 the Spartans are now now 7/1 to win the NCAA Tournament this season. Michigan State returns a talented young roster led by Miles Bridges, who spurned the NBA for a shot to win it all with the Spartans. Bridges has a chance to be a preseason first-team All-American and will be one of the most explosive athletes in college basketball next season -- something we know Tom Izzo can work his magic with as he proved this past season. Sparty is coming off a season that finished just shy of a Sweet Sixteen appearance and returns all five starters.
