    (AP) –– Villanova is the NCAA Selection Committee’s top overall seed, but Kansas is the favorite to win the NCAA Tournament, according to Las Vegas odds compiled by Pregame.com.

    The Jayhawks are 8-to-1 to win the whole thing, followed by North Carolina and Villanova at 9-to-1. Gonzaga, Duke and Kentucky are 10-to-1 to win the championship.

    Pac-12 rivals UCLA and Arizona are both 12-to-1. Louisville is 16-to-1, and Oregon is 20-to-1.

    The Ducks’ chances took a huge hit in the Pac-12 tournament with big man Chris Boucher injured his knee.
