NCAA Tournament Winner
To Make Final Four
As one of the blue bloods of college basketball, Kentucky garners a ton of money every year to be the National Champions, and for good reason. The Wildcats get a massive amount of new talent every year under coach John Calipari, and they have some returning starters to boot. And they have brought in West Virginia transfer Tre Mitchell to the team, which is a solid addition to this team. And their odds to win the championship next season have shifted quite a bit after opening at +1200 and have now moved to +1500.
This past season was a successful one for Kentucky. They finished the season 21–10, 12–6 in SEC play to finish in third place. As the No. 3 seed in the SEC tournament, they were upset in the quarterfinal round by Vanderbilt. They received a bid to the NCAA tournament where they defeated Providence in the first round before falling to Kansas State in the second round to finish the season with a final record of 22–12.
They didn't quite make the Final Four, but they are in the mix to do so next year, at +450 odds at FanDuel.

4. Futures bet: This type of bet involves placing a wager on a future event, such as which team will win the NCAA Tournament.
5. Prop bet: With a prop bet, you wager on a specific aspect of the game, such as which player will score the most points or whether a specific player will make a certain number of three-pointers.
