The Number one team in the country according to most off the most notorious sports betting sites is Oklahoma. The Sooners have had one heck of a year, not without a misstep here and there in their previous games, but overall they have been dominating their competition and they are very likely headed to the Final Four.

The second team in our list is Villanova. The Wildcats, are considered by some pundits and sports writers as THE top team in College basketball, while others rank them at the number 4 position, which is very low for them. One thing is for sure, you can expect Villanova gain momentum as we reach March madness and then we will truly see how talented this team really is.

The number three position is held by Kansas, one team that will be determined to reach the Final Four and win that national title. This is a school that is accustomed to greatness, they have in Bill Self a phenomenal coach and a serious contender every year as per most of the top sports betting sites.

The Tar Heels are in what seems to be a sure ACC championship and a run in March Madness that will take them on a deep run. In the coming weeks it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone when the Tar Heels are brought up in the conversation as the number one team in the country. Their odds in sports betting sites to reach the Final Four will see some changes, but finally we can’t see them as the National Champions.
