Three Pac-12 teams all have a good chance to win the national title. Let’s take a look at their chances to win a title. Odds courtesy of Bovada.
Arizona Wildcats, 13 to 2: The path is clear for Arizona to make the Final Four. They head to the West Region and will be heavily favored against Xavier in the Sweet 16. Then they move on and face either Gonzaga or West Virginia. In San Jose, they should have at least semi-home advantage. And Glendale will almost be entirely homecourt advantage.
UCLA Bruins, 9 to 1: UCLA has a difficult road to get to Glendale, but if they can survive their next two games they will have to be the favorites. UCLA has already beaten Kentucky once this season. North Carolina nor Butler have a huge talent influx.
Oregon Ducks, 18 to 1: Oregon faces a difficult road to get to the Final Four. They will be facing a red-hot Michigan team, and then likely have to beat either athletic Kansas or the big squad in Purdue. And they will have to do that without Chris Boucher. Just not an easy road.
