A month ago or so ago, according to VegasInsider.com, Missouri had the eighth-best odds of winning the national title following the hiring of Cuonzo Martin and the signing of Michael Porter Jr., Jeremiah Tilmon, Kassius Robertson, etc.
We were wondering what the effects of Jontay Porter’s reclassification and addition to the 2017-18 roster would be. Now we know. Mizzou’s odds are up to a tie for sixth-best.

Duke has the best odds, followed by Michigan State, Arizona, Kentucky, Kansas, and a three-way tie between defending champion North Carolina, Louisville, and Ol’ Mizzou.
North Carolina went 33-7 last year, Louisville went 25-9, and Missouri went 8-24. This is never not going to be weird.
