Virginia is favored to repeat as college basketball national champions in 2020.

According to the latest odds, Virginia and Kentucky are both tied for the top spot at 7/1. Duke and Michigan State follow at 8/1.

Could you imagine how wild people would get if Virginia went from suffering the most embarrassing loss in tournament history to winning back-to-back national titles. (RELATED: Virginia Wins The National Title After Beating Texas Tech)

That would make simply an outstanding “30 for 30,” and it would immortalize Tony Bennett as one of the greatest coaches ever.

Life is good right now if you’re a fan of the Cavaliers and the future is super bright.

As for Kentucky, I’ll believe it when I see it. Every year it seems like they’re always favored to do huge things under John Calipari.

He’s only won a single title with them, which means he fails most of the time.

As for my Badgers, they’re slotted in at 100/1. I have to throw some money down, right? I wouldn’t be a real fan if I didn’t take numbers like that. (RELATED: Watch Wisconsin Beat Kentucky In The 2015 Final Four)

If betting at 100/1 isn’t a solid investment strategy, then I have no idea what is.

Sound off in the comments with who you’re taking. My guess is that a lot of you will be riding with the Cavaliers.
