Minutes after Kansas defeated North Carolina to win the 2022 national championship, 2023 national championship betting opened at BetMGM. And despite the return of Caleb Love, Armando Bacot, and R.J. Davis, the Tar Heels don’t have the best odds among ACC teams.
North Carolina recovered from an underwhelming start to the Hubert Davis era to win 11 of their final 13 regular-season games last year, including a 13-point win over Duke in Coach K’s final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Despite that win, another win over the Blue Devils four weeks in the Final Four, and the return of key players, the Tar Heels are behind Duke in national title odds at the online sportsbook.
2023 National Championship Odds
As of June 6, approximately five months before the start of the 2022-23 season, Kentucky and Gonzaga are co-favorites (+1000) to win the 2023 title, followed closely by Duke and three other teams – Arkansas, Kansas, and Houston – and +1200.
North Carolina is tied with UCLA for the seventh-best odds at +1400, well ahead of the next-highest ACC team, Virginia (+5000). Only two other ACC teams are better than +10000, and five teams are +20000 or worse.
Here’s a look at 2023 national championship odds for each ACC team:
How To Bet on National Championship Odds
You can bet on college basketball odds for the national championship throughout the offseason and 2022-23 season.
As Bacot and North Carolina seek redemption after blowing a 17-point lead to Kansas, Jeremy Roach and Duke chase a return trip to the Final Four, and other ACC teams look for a breakthrough season, odds will shift at the sportsbook. And when you spot a favorable number, you can add that team to your betting slip, enter a wager amount, and place your bet.
You can return to BetMGM later in the season to place a new bet on a different team, increase your investment on the same team, or place multiple smaller bets on several different teams.
