College Basketball Odds: Boston College Enters Season With 75/1 Odds To Win NCAA Championship

Boston College is in the middle of the pack when it comes to college basketball odds to start the season, entering the 2011-12 campaign with 75/1 odds to win the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship this season according to Bodog.

There are 33 teams ahead of BC that have higher odds to win the title this season, but the Eagles have the fourth-best odds of any Atlantic Coast Conference team behind UNC, Duke and Florida State. Counting future ACC members Syracuse and Pittsburgh, BC would have the sixth best odds in the soon-to-be-altered ACC.

North Carolina, pegged as the No. 1 team in the AP Preseason Men's Basketball Poll, is unsurprisingly the odds on favorite to win the 2011-12 NCAA Championship Title with 7/2 odds. Right behind UNC is Kentucky, which comes in at 9/2 odds to walk away with the national title.

Ohio State (15/2) and Duke (10/1) have the next best odds to win a title while the Connecticut Huskies have the fifth best odds to walk away as the champs with 12/1 odds. UConn is the reigning national champion, in case you were sleeping through March Madness and the ensuing six months or so.

Here are the odds for BC's conference mates in the ACC: Maryland (100/1), Miami (100/1), N.C. State (100/1), Clemson (125/1), Georgia Tech (125/1) Virginia Tech (150/1), Virginia (200/1), Wake Forest (200/1).

Concerning individual awards, UNC's Harrison Barnes is the favorite to win the 2011-12 NCAA Player of the Year award with 7/4 odds. Jared Sullinger of Ohio State (5.2), UConn's Jeremy Lamb (5/1), Vanderbilt's John Jenkins (8/1), Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor (17/2) and Baylor's Perry Jones (12/1) are other notable favorites for the award.
