    Who has the best chance to win the College Basketball Championship? Can Duke be beat?

    If you had to pick a team to win it other than Duke, who would you go with?

    I mean, Virginia lost to Duke by 2 AT DUKE. Cant count them out, I know last year was a disaster but they look strong this year.


    Tenn to me is a very very good team, maybe they have a shot


    Nova is on fire and they have the experience which certainly helps

    Michigan looking great as well

    I know Tenn and Zaga are 2 higher favorites but man they seemingly choke every year. Tenn looks like a different team this year to be fair

    Not so high on Duke, they potentially go through Villanova and UK, and that's no easy feat... Zags have a clearer path. I'd take Zags and Virginia as think the Cavs can beat Michigan. Tennessee?! Might go up against the Tar Heels and that's a potential upset. Tennessee has been money but lost to Kansas and almost lost to the Zags whilst playing at home. Maybe their match against UK will change my mind

    Duke relying too much on Zion. Teams will run a defensive zone to triple team him.

    I find it ironic that last time you asked if anybody could beat Duke, the Cuse came in and beat them in Cameron. Now you ask this and Duke’s next game happens to be at UVA. Hmmmm I wonder what will happen on Saturday.

    I caught NV at 40-1 to win it all before the Martins and Caroline announcement that they would return. If they are hot, they can beat anyone. Muss has exceptional b-ball experience, smarts, and passion. With their combined years of college ball this roster is a threat to all teams. You canít write them off especially in crazy March madness.

    40-1 good deal should be a #2 seed.........dont think they could win but you could get a good hedge opportunity if they make the final 4

    take duke to go 6-0 ATS all tourney.

    start with $100, all in every bet after 6 games will win you roughly 6k. Better than the +177 odds

    Really?? Wow that adds up quick.

    highly doubt they go 6-0 ATS these odds makers are sharp

    Tennessee possibly could be a threat, but it does seem like Duke is the runaway favorite at this point. Anything can happen in the tournament, however.

    They’re rolling through the PAC but just remember the PAC sucks this year, it’s a 1-bid league unless UW loses in the conf tourney

    Marquette has the ability to beat anyone with their guards. Everyone on the outside can shoot

    The fan in me thinks Kentucky can beat anybody they play and Saturday proved that when they won convincingly against #1 Tennessee. Duke will be tough for anybody to beat if they shoot like they did against Kentucky and Virginia where they seemingly made everything from the 3 point line which is their supposed weakness. All it takes is one bad shooting night and even Almighty Duke can be sent home in the tourney though.
