The combination of senior Seth Curry, a healthy Ryan Kelly, and the sibling tandem of Mason and Marshall Plumlee has got plenty of ACC fans intrigued. With that being said, there’s no guarantee it will help them establish themselves above the rest when it comes to their odds of winning March Madness.
Current college basketball odds give Kentucky that honor, while the Blue Devils trail with 20/1 odds in NCAA futures.
The Wildcats may be without Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but that’s not to say they’ll be lacking star power when the 2012-13 campaign tips off. The freshmen front court of Nerlens Noel and Alex Poythress has already got NBA Draft fans salivating at Kentucky’s odds of making another deep run this season.
Although the two juggernaut programs won’t meet again until the spring, they’ll each be mainstays in the national spotlight. College basketball, after all, hinges on the success of household name programs like these.
