The odds changed slightly after Alabama was named a 1-seed, where they jumped Kansas for the second-best odds. After the first day of the tournament, however, due to injuries and other results in the bracket, Alabama jumped Houston to become the favorite to win the national title. As other favorites fell, the odds continued to shuffle.
