Vegas picks Duke, but bettors side with Sparty
From ESPN - November 9, 2017

No. 1 Duke enters the basketball season as the consensus favorite to win the national championship, but No. 2 Michigan State is seeing the most interest at Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Blue Devils are the favorites at 3-1, followed by the Spartans and Kentucky, who are each at 6-1 at William Hill's Nevada sportsbooks. Arizona, at 8-1, is the only other team with single-digit odds.

Duke and Michigan State are 4-1 co-favorites at the Westgate SuperBook.

The Spartans opened at 20-1 to win the national title and have been supported heavily throughout the offseason. More bets have been placed and more money has been wagered on Michigan State to win the national championship than on any other team at William Hill, CG Technology and Caesars Palace sportsbooks.
