The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook gives Gonzaga a very slight edge over North Carolina in its current odds for the national title. Oregon sits a bit further back at 4-1, while South Carolina is a distant fourth.

ESPN's BPI gives Gonzaga better than a 50-50 shot to win it all in Phoenix, thanks largely to drawing seventh-seeded South Carolina in the semifinals. North Carolina-Oregon is a tighter matchup by BPI's measure, hurting each team's title odds.
