CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Kyrie Irving's return has pushed Duke into the role of co-favorites in this NCAA tournament.
Sportsbook.com now lists Ohio State (+450), Kansas (+450) and Duke (+450) as the three co-favorites -- followed by Pittsburgh (+800), San Diego State (+1000) and Notre Dame (+1200). Meantime, Duke has even odds to win the West Regional even though a presumed Elite Eight matchup with San Diego State could feel like a road game in Anaheim.
I've still got SDSU winning the West Regional.
But I've also got Missouri and Vanderbilt in the Sweet 16.
So, yeah, Duke's probably in good shape.
