After the latest round of signature wins and stunning upsets by teams headed to the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball tournament, top-ranked Syracuse and No. 2 Florida have been installed today as co-favorites to cut down the nets in Arlington by oddsmakers at Bovada Sports Book (www.Bovada.lv).

Both the Orange (25-0) and the Gators (23-2), owners of a 17-game winning streak, have been given 6-1 odds to claim the title after the final game at the Final Four, April 5-7 at AT&T Stadium.

Rounding out the top five favorites, with odds, are Kansas (15/2), Michigan State (17/2) and the Duke-Arizona combo, both at 9/1. No. 3 Wichita State, the team with the nation’s best record (27-0), has been assigned 14/1 odds.

Among teams from the Lone Star State, No. 19 Texas (50/1) and unranked SMU (100/1) are considered the best bets for a home-state title celebration.
