Texas. The Longhorns dropped a huge game to Colorado they should have walked away with. They have had problems with consistency, especially on the road, and already lost to Pitt, who will steal the seed away from the Longhorns. Texas is 10:1 to win the title.
Duke. While Dukies will clamor for a top seed, they don’t deserve one. Take a look at the résumé for the Blue Devils, and impressive victories will be hard to come by. An early win against Michigan State is suddenly not-so-notable, and losses to Florida State and Virginia Tech hurt their chances. Duke is 4:1 to win the title.
Notre Dame. Another Big East team that deserves a look, but unless they win the Big East tournament, they won’t get the top spot. The Irish are 20:1 to win the title.
Purdue. Beating Ohio State sure looks good on the list of victories, but they will still come up short for a top seed. Purdue is 12:1 to win the title.
