Westgate has Spartans as 6/1 favorites to win the 2020 national title
Published on Tuesday, 7/9/19, at 5:32 p.m. Eastern.
Here are the updated odds to win the 2020 men’s NCAA Tournament at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas (H/T to Eli Hershkovich – @EliHershkovich on Twitter):
Michigan St. 6/1
North Carolina 16/1
Texas Tech 25/1
Ohio St. 30/1
Mississippi State 50/1
Am I stoked that I got down on the Gators at 60/1 before Kerry Blackshear Jr.’s decision? You damn right I am! On that note, let’s point out that Cleveland State transfer Tyree Appleby is taking an unofficial visit to UF this weekend. Appleby averaged 17.3 points and 5.6 assists per game for the Vikings last year.
Now Appleby would have to sit out a season and would then have two years of eligibility remaining. You can see his talent and speed in this highlight captured from Eric Fawcett’s Twitter account:
It’s not hard to see why Tyree Appleby is desired by so many high major teams. Extremely crafty scorer and gifted passer. #Gators trying to work out a visit soon. @Lil_App04 pic.twitter.com/aLd8YemxHF

According to Evan Daniels of 247Sports, Appleby is drawing interest from the likes of Florida, Arkansas, Tennessee, Tulane, Texas Tech and Iowa St. Other reports noted Pittsburgh as being interested, too.
The Gators had a built-in edge for Blackshear based on location since he is from Orlando. If that matters in this case, the Razorbacks are the ones with a location advantage. Appleby hails from Jacksonville, Ark.
