And then, there was one.
One of the last two unbeatens fell over the weekend, with Baylor losing 71-58 at Kansas to drop the Bears to 18-1.
Now, many people will point out that Baylor was probably still rusty from its COVID-19 layoff, which might be true. But the Bears and the Phog have not been a good match; in fact, it has been a nightmare playing at Kansas. Baylor is now 1-18 all time on the road against the Jayhawks.
But the real question is, what has the loss done to the future odds to win the NCAA Men’s Tournament in April?
Of course, Baylor is still expected to be a top seed, but it has now fallen behind Michigan in the S-Curve, down to third.
Right now, most sports books have Gonzaga as the favorite at odds of around +275, with the Bears now slipping to second around +325. Some books had Baylor around the same odds as the Bulldogs.
The real movers, though, are the Wolverines. Michigan has seen its odds fall from +650 down to +400 at some books in the last two weeks, because they are red hot, and also because of the gauntlet of teams they have beaten this season in the Big Ten.
Gonzaga should still be the favorites, but many people are jumping on the Michigan bandwagon.
