While pro basketball dominates headlines this morning with the Kyrie Irving trade from Cleveland to Boston, we have updated odds on who will win the college basketball national championship next season.

If you want to put down some money on Anthony Grant leading the Dayton Flyers all the way to the top in his first season as head coach at his alma mater, it could net you a big chunk of change.

The Flyers are 300/1 odds (per Bovada) to cut down the nets in April.

Next comes Michigan State at 13/2 with Arizona at 8/1 and Kentucky at 9/1.

Xavier and Archie Miller’s Indiana Hoosiers are both at 66/1 while Cincinnati is getting 100/1 odds.

Ohio State, also under new management after Chris Holtmann replaced Thad Matta this summer, is also at 300/1.
