For starters, Arkansas and Duke are co-favorites at +900. It’s justified, as these programs boast the top-rated 2022 recruiting classes.

Most recently, the Razorbacks reeled in top-20 recruit Anthony Black. The 6-foot-7 point guard is Eric Musselman’s third five-star addition. His pressure defense should allow for Black and Co. to adjust to the college level quickly because of their likely transition opportunities.

Meanwhile, Mike Krzyzewski’s reign (of terror) with the Blue Devils is over. Jon Scheyer, who was Duke’s point guard on the 2009-10 championship team, has officially taken over as the program’s head coach. The Northbrook, Ill., native was on Krzyzewki’s staff since 2014.

Duke will showcase four five-star recruits, including No. 1 overall recruit Dereck Lively II. The 7-foot-1, 220-pound center is not only dominant on the glass, but he can also space the floor.

2023 College Basketball Odds: Early Value Bet?

Even though I won’t be wagering on any futures at this point, Florida State (+10000) is an intriguing bunch to keep an eye on.

The Seminoles were ravaged by injuries while showcasing an inexperienced roster in the 2021-22 campaign. If forwards Anthony Polite and Malik Osborne return, they’ll present a deep, switchable defense — a key in Leonard Hamilton’s setup.

Top-20 transfer Jaylan Gainey (Brown) also fits perfectly in FSU’s frontcourt, which traditionally delivers supremely athletic bigs. Gainey generated the 23rd-highest block rate last season.
