NCAA championship odds: UNC among Vegas' top picks to win 2018 tournament

The Tar Heels had barely lifted the trophy when the Vegas odds for the 2017-18 season were released.

North Carolina is the 2017 NCAA champion in men's college basketball. How much of a chance does Las Vegas give the Tar Heels to repeat in 2018?

According to this list posted Monday night by handicapper RJ Bell of pregame.com, a pretty decent one; UNC is among the way-too-early favorites at 12-1.
