As the No. 1 overall seed, Kentucky won handily in its opening NCAA Tournament game vs. No. 16 Hampton.

But the Wildcats were favored by 30-plus points, and their 23-point victory didn’t cover the spread.

When UK takes on Cincinnati Saturday, the Wildcats are a big favorite again – the line opened at 18.5, but has since dropped about 2 points.

Kentucky-Cincinnati Odds to Win the Tournament

Kentucky … 6/5

Cincinnati … 200/1

Kentucky has the best odds of any team to win the tournament and it’s going to stay that way. Were they the most impressive team in the Round of 64? No, but they’re still the favorites.

Pulling an upset of Kentucky wouldn’t all of a sudden make Cincinnati the new favorite. But it would bust a ton of brackets and probably make some Bearcat wagerers a little bit wealthier.
