Texas Tech opens February with 75/1 odds to win NCAA title

Red Raiders have same odds to win as TCU, Texas A&M, Florida State and Louisville

NCAA Basketball: Texas at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Despite wins against South Carolina and Texas in the past week, Texas Tech’s odds to win the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship dropped from 66/1 on January 3 to 75/1 today.

We last checked the board a month ago when Tech had just defeated Kansas in Lawrence, so it makes sense Tech’s odds dropped slightly despite the recent successes during the last week.

Michigan State remains the favorite to win it all, but you have to wonder if the distractions with Tom Izzo and all the allegations surrounding that program will affect their play on the court.

Kansas remains the favorite to win the national championship out of the Big 12, followed closely by Oklahoma and West Virginia. Check out the full list of odds below, courtesy of Bovada:
