There are preseason polls out by now, and we have odds from Las Vegas as well. These preliminary odds are from the Westgate Casino sportsbook, and if nothing else, they support the notion that NC State will have a top-25 team next season. The Wolfpack is given 60-1 odds on the 2016 national title. Psssh, 60-1. WHY ARE YOU HATING, WESTGATE SPORTSBOOK.

KENTUCKY 10-1
NORTH CAROLINA 10-1
VIRGINIA 10-1

Twenty-four teams have better national title odds than the Wolfpack, according to this super early glimpse from the Westgate. These odds imply that the ACC is going to be incredibly tough next season--UNC and UVA are title favorites with Kentucky, while Duke, Louisville, Notre Dame, Miami, and Syracuse all have title odds as good or better than 60-1. So that's eight ACC teams in this odds-based top-30.

Stuff's gonna change with roster movement, but whatever. Such a deep league sounds like fun. Reminds me of the good old days, and when I say good old days, I mean 2004.
