Villanova and Duke are the co-favorites to win the NCAA title despite being on the same side of the bracket, and that’s why you see Kansas — one of only two remaining #1 seeds — at pretty long odds.

They’ll have to get by a suddenly red-hot Clemson in the Sweet 16, then (likely) Duke in the Elite Eight, and then potentially Nova in the Final Four. Devonte’ Graham and the Jayhawks have the toughest draw at this stage.

On the other side of the bracket, John Calipari’s Kentucky team is playing its best ball of the season and has a dream draw in the South, with the #1-4 seeds all falling in the first two rounds.

They can’t look past a potential Elite Eight matchup with resilient Nevada, though, which must be feeling like the team of destiny after coming back from 14 down against #10 Texas and 21 down against #2 Cincinnati.
