On November 12, Las Vegas sports book Bovada released odds on which college basketball teams would win this season’s national championship. Florida State opened at 90/1, but with a few weeks of the 2018-2019 season in the rearview and the Seminoles having climbed to a No. 11 ranking, Vegas thinks more of the ’Noles.
FSU’s national title odds are now set at 65/1, the same as those of Virginia Tech and West Virginia. 18 teams are getting better odds than Florida State, led by Duke, at 2/1. Other ACC teams getting more favorable odds than FSU include Virginia at 12/1, North Carolina at 20/1, and Syracuse at 40/1.
As far as the Seminoles’ rivals go, Miami’s odds have improved from 125/1 to 100/1, while the Florida Gators’ odds have taken a nosedive, falling from 60/1 to 200/1. FSU has already smoked UF and will face Miami twice during conference play.
